I'm hunting a 20 acre tract that is surrounded by hundreds of acres all low fence. Other than corn in the feeder what else would y'all put out by the feeder to entice deer & turkey to frequent my area more often? I'm from Indiana so this is my first full year hunting here & all new to baiting. Any other methods? Do mock scrapes & licking branches work here? I will be mostly bowhunting & only once or twice a week so as to limit pressure.

Corn is about all they need. You can get a more expensive mix but it won't do much better. Soybeans add a little protein. Milo might bring in the quail.

Welcome.

Much may depend on "What area" you're hunting, fall food plots are usually pretty productive.

Maybe try some peas of some sort. A mineral block on the ground may help.

I usually put a 50 lb bag of milo on top of the corn into my 55 gallon feeders, then stir the top to mix about the top foot. The milo is smaller and filters down thru the corn. Turkey really seem to like it (doves too). I usually put out a sulfur salt block a little ways from the feeder. Trophy rock is like candy to the deer.

Yes, mock scrapes and licking branches will work. Unless you are in an area over run with does and very few bucks.

Corn is all you need, but if you can add a salt block and have your feeder near water all the better. I feed twice a day and have my feeder set to go off 10 minutes before shooting light in the morning. I am changing the timer all the time during the season to keep it at 10 minutes before shooting light and I do the same thing in the afternoon with 1 hour before dark.
