As the days get shorter and temps come down they will move better. Also when it gets closer to the rut the bucks will increase their daylight activity. You might set you feeder times about just after sunup and a 1/2 hour before sundown if you want to try to get them in sooner.

Rut is usually the only thing that will bring our big bucks out on a consistent basis.

We tried throwing 3 seconds of corn at noon and it has produced pics of deer and pigs coming in for lunch. However, there are no big bucks at mid-day yet.

During rut it seems like we see a lot of big bucks at mid-day so we are trying to get the does used to coming to the feeders at noon. Then maybe a hot doe will bring one into our feeders when rut starts.

Your deer know what a feeder is and they know when it goes off. Set your feeder for one morning feed only. You need to get them competing for a feed. If you are feeding 3X per day, they have YOU patterned. May take a few weeks good luck.
