Store bought right of the bag or home made concoction let's here it....

Personally I've enjoyed roasted corn and soybeans with a few cut up apples thrown around.

I've tried everything.

Corn, they ain't touching it, to much natural food.

Deer cane, had some stragglers come by to check it out.

Salt lick, nothing.

Peanut butter and molasses, nothing

Rice bran, nothing.

Sugar beet crush, notihing

Persimmon crush, nothing.

If corn isn't working your best bet is to not hunt corn. Everyone is looking for the easy road but there is no magic. Stop doing whats not working and try something new. Hunt trails to and from bedding, water, other food sources. Hunt scrape or rub lines. Sitting there hoping they finally decide to come to an attractant is a sure way to not find success.

Corn for sure. I also have a couple of protein feeders next to my corn feeders. Just about every deer that comes to my corn feeder always jumps in the pen to eat some protein too. The free choice protein gives my deer something to snack on while they are waiting for the corn feeder to go off as well. I feed corn and protein year around. On a side note, my deer took quite a while to start eating the protein but once they got started I can't keep the feeders full.

Yep. Watching an unproductive feeder is a drag. Get out and rattle. Do something different.


Life is too short, as is. Don't chance it.

Just how long is quite a while?? A month, 6 months or a year?

Started protein this year. Had tried in previous years but failed. This year I purchased a timed protein feeder from all seasons which kept a constant supply of protein out. Had it not been for the timed unit I'm sure they still wouldn't have taken to eating protein (years past with a different feeder coons would dump the whole thing out).

It took the deer from March all the way till the week after thanksgiving to eat protein out of the feeder! From the time they started eating through 1 week before Christmas I had over 1k pictures of deer eating protein! Feeding Double Down.

Every time I go to my hunting areas, even during off season, I ALWAYS corn the roads. Eventually they get used to the sound of the ATV and know food isn't far behind.

I Feed Indian Corn. The deer love it and all the colors make them stay at the feeder longer.
