See day on my cam all night long but they won't come out in the daytime. So frustrating

I have the same thing going on and read another thread that asked how much corn was being thrown in the evening and if there was corn left on the ground past sunset. Makes complete since, if you throw just enough in the evening that none is left over then they have nothing to eat at 2 am! I am adjusting my feeders after the hunt this Sunday to see if it helps!

I thought about that too last night, but there are so many other hunters around that I am worried about them just going elsewhere to eat at night

The deer have pretty much stopped coming to my feeders for the last couple weeks. The acorn crop is very good this year, and until they sour, the deer probably won't come to the feeders.

Also there is a black cat probably 30-40 pounds roaming around the feeder that I can't get a pic of because of the distance but I feel like he is messing some stuff up

they need a feeder timer you can control remotely with your "smart" (stupid) phone

then from the comfort of home you can change the throw time 5 minutes a day until you get the deer showing up when you want

start out at night/early am and over a month you could change the time 2.5 hours even with just 5 minutes a day (30 days X 5 minutes a day = 150 minutes = 2.5 hours)

That is after they have been to their preferred foods. Your corn is a tiny part of their diet, the "dessert" so to speak.

Quit hunting feeders and hunt travel corridors, edges of bedding areas, etc.

I kinda have to disagree about not having any corn left over after dark. If the deer are feeding after dark then I want there to be corn left so that if they do walk by they now they can get corn there. Maybe where you have your feeder set up is not a place they travel or feed during daylight hrs. The deer are somewhere during the day and that's where u need to be set up. Just an opinion

Would this not mess up the deer or keep it away?
