Any advice to possibly see and have deer.

The creek has some H2o but never seen deer at any time when camera was up.

The blue is my boundry its super super thick woods.

Muti color lines show what way the few tiny deer have came to the hand corn.

From me to corn is max 20yrds
Any help or what not will be used ASAP

Thanks in advance

Add a feeder. Maybe a gravity feeder. Need to get more consistent on feeding. Hand throwing corn will get them to stop if they just happen by but will do nothing to draw them in your direction.

20yds is real close. Any way to back off a little more?? Can you open up a shooting lane?
Are you using a bow or rifle?

Neither I built 2 out of natural timber and branches.

I have never hunted from blinds nor pop ups lol weirdly always built so it wouldn't freak them out.. I do douse myself in scent killer and clothes stay outside when not wearing them


Its really frustrating almost makes me wanna let them wi . Bahahahaha

The problem with letting clothes stay outside is that they will absorb the odor where they are not where you are goning to be.

Is that the whole property, or just one side?

Considering I bow hunt in fresh washed clothes with tropical fresh detergent I highly doubt that him hanging his clothes outside is what is giving him the issues.

No never to late. Do it during the middle of the day.. it has only been cold enough once this season to really make the deer move you got plenty of time

How many acres is this? It looks more like a pass threw area to me. I'd look for a game trail coming out of the thicker stuff and post up.
