Started feeding 22% corn roasted soy bean mix out of a feeder I donít hunt checked it today to see deer are hitting it every day but not touching the soybean. Anyone had this issue before?

Not me personally due to i have never tried it, but i have two buddies that had a place in Lampasas several years ago and they had the same issue, all the corn would be gone, but the deer never touched the Soybeans. Not real sure why they wouldn't eat it!

Maybe STXRanchman can weigh in and give you some ideas!

I feed that mix during the summer and the deer love it. I have found the hogs tend to leave the soybeans at my place for some reason. I couldn't tell you why but I have watched them do it.

Had that experience many moons ago so I quite trying it. Maybe it's due to the soybeans being roasted?

Iíve had this happen before. Buddy and myself bought soybean/corn mix from the same place, but put it on two different ranches 150 miles apart. Deer wouldnít touch it. I figured it was a bad batch of soybeans since the deer/ turkeys hammer it otherwise.

I've never had that issue in the three years since I started using it in Stonewall County.
