Got some new land I am going to hang a stand and start hunting and was curious how much it would effect the deer having a feeder go off in the morning and evening? The land was just recently purchased by a friend and it doesn't appear anyone ever hunted or did anything with the land.

I'm tempted to hunt when I can on the weekends without the feeder starting off, as to not disturb the area anymore then I need to. However, I would hate to wait until Halloween time or later to put the feeder down and effect the deer during potential rut time.

It won't hurt at all. It will only help. It'll take a few days for them to find it.

They will learn to come to the sound of the feeder.

As everyone said....the best sound in the morning if you are deer hunting is the feeder going off.

The sound of the feeder going off is the dinner bell to deer.

Probably less time that that. There have been many times I have put up a feeder and checked on it the very next day to find that the deer had already been all over it.

Depends on what part of country you are in. Hand corn might work better.

If there's deer there, after a while they will recognize that sound as a "dinner bell". A bit longer and you'll find 'em standing around waiting for it to go off....

A fellow I once hunted with hung 1/16" thick small steel plates around his feeder and we could hear it ring from the front gate!
