I bow hunt a small 36 acre, very dense woods in Leon County. I usually start throwing corn about August, just wondering what other people across the state do? And also wondering if anyone had heard of big bucks being killed out of Leon County. I've only seen one small 8 on a trail cam and that was at night.

Dump a few corn piles away from your feeder and put a camera watching them. Id bet theres more walking around than what your seeing. Those deer dont hang out around feeders often unless they have been in place for years, and they have become accustomed to it.

I feed year round.

We never stop throwing, just scale it back in the off season.

Leon Co can produce some great deer. I have a buddy who has killed a couple 140's off a small ~100 acre place near Centerville.

Just depends on the place. Once the green hits, we don't see deer on the feeders until Late August/September. We just feed the hogs, turkey and coons spring/summer. We keep 3 feeders going year round and same story each year when it rains like it has the past 3.

I've been running about 10,000 lbs. of corn a year, between the feeders and hog traps. I think keeping them accustomed to eating at the same old familiar hangouts is a good thing, and we are trying to build the population on the properties. I have deer eating at the same places year around now.

Year around...dial them back in April when things start sprouting and then in Aug or Sept depending on weather increase it. I've got two feeders going at my stand in different locations. In Aug/Sept I start throwing twice in the am and twice in the pm with both feeders.

It can be as green as can be and I still get deer hitting my corn feeders so I feed all year. They seem to slow down on the protein during the spring growth and then start hammering it again in the heat of the summer.

Usually feed year round. It is so green out right now and I have a 3 acre food plot that if the feeder runs out this time of year no biggy. Right now there are so many food choices out there I only have around 3 does that visit it besides all of the squirrels and birds. I probably will not refill it until June 1st if we keep getting good rains up

When I hunted in Bosque county, I would start in mid sept. Deer always hit feeders same day or next day at latest. I feed year round at my new place/per the rules. Don't mind either way.
