Hey y'all. A bunch of you gave me some great suggestions on finding some game on the property I have access to. I am going to be making a trip to set up cameras and fill feeders. Several of you mentioned just dropping piles of corn around the property. Out of curiosity, is it worth waiting around a few hours later to see if anything shows up? Or will it take a few days for them to find it?

It depends on the amount of deer and the range conditions. I would feed long lines of corn the first trip then a few piles in select locations that look promising. The long line/trail of corn will allow them to find it much quicker.

Makes sense. I am interested to see what I can find on the camera. Whenever I am out there, I find some sign but it is inconsistent, and typically a little older. It is right near the donihoo ranch in the hamilton/evant/purmela area, and I know there are deer and pigs out there. It is just gonna be a matter of turning it into a more attractive property. As far as water goes, I know its important, but how important is it that there is a water source on the property? There is a windmill and a dry trough on the place, but otherwise there isn't any water on the place, just around it. Would it be worth figuring a way to get some kind of water out there? If so, any cost effective solutions?

Haul water in a tote to fill the trough it is still in good shape.

Hmm. I wonder how long it will hold water before it evaporates. Probably the easiest solution though.

Lot less this time of the year with temps and shorter days ahead.

yep, or if you don't have access to a tote, a few of the blue plastic barrels will work also. The smaller bung should be the same size as a male end water faucet, lay on it's side with faucet down, then loosen the larger bung to allow air flow.
