Winter is the least dangerous time to feed corn, but really, winter feeding shouldn't be done at all. But for those wanting to run a baited photo census, a small pile of corn to attract deer in front of the camera in winter is more biologically sound than using the same technique in summer, when even small corn piles can quickly become infected with enough aflatoxin to be deadly to wildlife.

If we put corn out the hogs would wipe it out before the deer got to it!

I live in the flat part of Ohio where farm ground is everywhere. Several deer I've taken were filled with corn and typically the deer are heavy. Won a big doe contest one year with a 175 pound doe. My woods right now has more acorns than I've ever seen and once again the deer don't seem to be eating them. They love the beans, corn, alfalfa, grasses, wheat...crops and flower gardens.

Got a pic yesterday of a young 7 pointer, no real mass to speak of, that thing has got to be over 200 pounds. As far as I can see corn has never done a thing to deer except put weight on them. That big doe had a half a bucket full of corn in her.

This is a cornucopia of opinions and semi-correct biological cornclusions all which, when taken with a grain of corn don't amount to a pile of corn.

Where I hunt (one of the places) owner feeds his cattle. If he put a feed bunk in the woods, could I legally hunt deer and turkeys over it? What if he spilled some on the road through the woods? One of my stands is less than 10-feet from one of the roads. Could I hunt that stand? Would it be ethical or legal?

All this ridiculous bantering has given me corns on both feet. I should have stayed ion the woods this morning but it started raining and got all my bait, as well as my butt, wet.

If its legal who cares? Just because some people like doing it, doesn't mean you need to judge them( as long as its legal). Baiting is going to be legal in tn sooner or later I hope some of the Nancys on here can deal with it.

Disclaimer. I don't/won't ever bait deer, but I won't be the holier than thou crowd if someone else does it legally.

I pour corn in front of cameras then make sure it's gone ten days before I hunt that stand. The best deer I have on camera this year is a 120" 2.5 year old deer. He is young but if I see him he's done for. I don't think it matters how old the deer are that you shoot. You get three bucks a year and your done. We limit ourselves to two on the lease. I took them both last year so if a monster walked out after the second buck I'm just out of luck. I can only shoot does. I might regret my choice to shoot a smaller buck. I've been waiting to see a monster for 25 years so no regrets yet. I've gone years in a row with no bucks just hoping to develop huge bucks..........Still waiting.

I have put out corn to get good trail cam pics but,most of the time don't fool with it much. Its got expensive and keeping enough out is hard to do sometimes. Almost everything eats corn.
