Feeders been out for a month or two. Hoping it was dry enough and went up yesterday. Still have tracks everywhere. Loaded up two of the feeders with Corn/Soybean mix and tripped the timer a couple of times. Looked up and here comes a couple of doe who just stop & watch until we leave.......

It was almost like they were saying "It's about time you got here"!

Good stuff. I have several pictures at my new lease of bucks looking up at the feeder just before dark. They're probably saying "what's wrong with this darn thing" since I was only throwing in the morning.

I think deer have more accurate watches than we do and always on time, or early.

A feeder going off is a dinner bell for a deer. They were glad to see you.

We've pushed deer off a feeder on our way to fill it, and then once we're done, they come right back from where they were watching us the whole time.

On Saturday I flipped through 2,100 pics on my game camera that I put in place the weekend before.

2,097 pics were of three boars.

1 pic of a deer. 2 pics of turkeys.

Unbelievable.

BanderaBound - sounds like you've got some pig hunting that needs doing.

I was surprised to see no exotics, pigs, or livestock at all on camera or around the pen for that matter. We aren't allowed to take Axis so not seeing them empty my protein was a nice surprise.

It is funny how deer come at a certain time and sound better than to a scent.
We bought a brand new feeder and went and stood it up near camp, with the intent of filling it with corn the next week. The deer came to the feeder even though it was brand new and never had corn, and it wasn't making a sound. They stood there looking at it like it was the cafeteria and they were waiting for it to open.
It thought it was interesting they they even know what a feeder looks like.

I heard of a guy that hooked a car horn to his feeder so that it honked as it spun. He could pull into camp and honk his horn...
