So I got some last minute land and it has very good derr signage. I put out a feeder this last Sunday and some cams. I went out there to check today and most of the corn is still around and not anything on the cam. Is there any really good attractant I can use last minute to help them find the feeder? Is any of that Buck Rage or similar liquid stuff that I could pour on the ground worth it?

Nothing honestly beats corn for attracting deer. But in the last 10 days or so the acorns have started dropping at an incredible rate on my place and the corn consumption has gone way down. As soon as the acorns start to sour, the deer will come to the feeder.

Corn and time. Alfalfa can be hit and miss. Buddy feeds it in the hill country and they eat the heck out of it. We tried for months and they wouldn't touch the stuff in the feeder we made and the stuff we put out on the ground and in bottom/top of 55 gallon drums they drug out and slept in it.

Yes it is, We went and checked it out not expecting too much and absolutely loved it. It actually has trees, a creek that runs through it and some what of rolling terrian. We actually liked it so much we are on a month to month lease until we can confirm water and electricity and then we are going to buy it.

Ok thanks everyone, We did quite a bit of work out there Sunday so I am guessing it will take some time after all the traffic for them to come back also.

feed a lot of corn when you get there and not just in one spot... run a line as far as you can see down a trail and then down another... anything less than 4 bags the night before a hunt then your not trying

Use BIG & J. It has been VERY successful for me. If they are around, they will come!

molasses - scent will carry much further than corn alone.
corn trails fanning out from feeder - they'll find faster.

If they don't hit the corn they won't hit anything else. Give it time and be patient.

I agree with Nav, spread corn down the shooting lanes and the will find it quicker

Indian Corn.! up As soon as the deer find it, they will stay until it's all gone. Works every time for me.

I Feed Indian Corn. The deer love it and all the colors make them stay at the feeder longer.
