I cut a trail into the woods from the edge of the field where my deer feeder is. To attract the deer to the feeder I corned the trail.

There is an electric cattle fence at the edge of the woods that I laid down to get the tractor across(not being used). To keep my son and his friends from running through it on the UTV at night I put some yellow caution tape flags about every 4'-5' on the wire so it could be seen.

For 2 weeks hogs ate every kernel of corn on the trail in the woods(corned it twice) all the way up to the electric fence wire but would not cross it. As soon as I took down the yellow caution tape flags off the wire they made a bee line to the feeder.

Just an observation....wonder if y'all have experienced anything like that.
