I forgot to take corn out of my truck and it got wet. It's in the plastic looking bags vs. paper bags. Can it still be put in a feeder or just dump it on the ground?

Hog bait - dump it into a barrel, add some water, diesel and a couple of packs of koolaid mix. Stir it up real good - cover it - and leave it in the sun for a week. Good ole sour mash for pigs!

Don't put it in the feeder.

Thanks for the feedback. I was trying to be cheap, but will dump it and let the pigs have a feast.

Last year I poured out 3 moldy bags in an area that I don't normally feed and put a camera on it. Checked the card after a week and pigs, deer, turkey, coyotes, and bobcats had all visited the area. I was amazed at all the activity. I'm thinking the molded corn puts off a stronger scent than regular corn.

It very well may, but the feeder getting clogged is a bigger issue than wildlife not enjoying it.
