I have a bachelor group of bucks coming in to a feeder every morning about 3:30-4:00 but they leave out before shooting light. Does anyone have any secrets to get them to stay until light?

Is this a corn feeder? Why is there corn on the ground at that time of the morning?

Turn down the afternoon throw so there isn't much corn left. If they want to eat, they can wait for the morning throw up

Yes, corn feeder. The corn is from the evening throw the night before. This group of bucks is all that's coming in to this feeder.

They are probably having to travel onto your place to get to the corn. You could try turning off the evening setting and just feeding at daylight in the morning.

That might actually work. So simple, don't know why I hadn't thought of it. Thanks.
