if planning on hunting a spot in the morning. Would you road corn that night to not risk spooking in the a.m? or early morning well before sunrise?

Every time I pass through there.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

Not a fan of doing it the night before. I'm always afraid they'll feed all night and then bed when I'm on stand. Do it in the morning. On most ranches the deer are so used to traffic I've become convinced that it really makes very little difference so long as it's done well before daylight.

When I corn a road/sendero I do it on the way to the stand. Also, I'm in the stand a full hour before sunrise. I don't personally think it spooks the deer at all to have a truck drive down a road. They see and hear trucks all the time.


I took the road less traveled

I've done it both ways as there are times when I will corn while dropping hunters at the blinds in the mornings. I have also corned heavy the evening before and had deer come out in the mornings feeding on the remains from the evening before. The deer will become accustomed if you corn on a regular schedule, just like when a feeder goes off.

I road corn in the morning and afternoon just before I get in the stand. A lot of times, deer are already on it after I park my truck and walk to the stand. If you road corn at night, deer will just eat it that night.

Deer are a lot less afraid in the dark. You might spook them a little but they won't go far. Been road corning here for 18 years and my deer are use to it, in fact the sound of the road feeder brings them in. I corn just before daylight, if I corn too early the deer will come in and eat all the corn before daylight.

Never corn at night unless you want them all other creatures to eat at night. Just do it right before you get in the stand.

I always put out a lot of corn the day before I hunt . That way I can slip in as quietly as possible the next morning. On my place if I go putting out corn and hunt immediately after then I've alerted the deer of my presence...some young deer will come out but the mature deer will not until later on in the day. This goes for Bowhunting also .

I corn when I go to the blind to hunt, be it archery or rifle. I do not corn at night because if I do I will be covered up in hogs. Any corn left after a hunt is eaten by the deer before any hogs get a chance to find it. If you corn year round, the deer will be used to the sound of it and actual move towards you quickly. I have had deer be on corn before I could get parked and get in the blind. Corn to early and the deer will eat it all and leave if the feeder has not went off. I have killed plenty of mature deer on corn put out by a vehicle right before I hunted and want deer to know I am around. The sounds of me running around my place are normal day to day sounds. I start to corn before daylight in late August for archery season. The worst thing one can do is start to run around before daylight the first day of deer season. Most places I have hunted, deer will not forget the sound of a road feeder no matter how long it has been since they have heard it.

I agree with not disturbing an area if no one has been around. Opening morning I will just corn the road I walk in on. For the afternoon hunt I will spread corn around the other roads. This blind has no activity around it ever except a county road 200 yards to the backside that can't be seen and only has a couple vehicles down it daily.
