Corn this time of year seems like a waste.

Not quite lol... If you can get a big buck to start coming to it this early and keep it out. He'll definately be back.

Save your money on the corn and put out some minerals. Not only is a trophy rock or mineral lick a lot cheaper, the deer would much rather have the minerals anyways.

Just my opinion.

Gotcha. In my experience, once a lick is established you really don't need any corn.

Several years ago the deer convinced me...

I had a corn feeder about 25 yards from an established mineral lick and I had cameras on both. I would get plenty of does and more coons than I could count on that corn feeder, but almost all of the buck pictures I got were over the lick. They would come to the lick almost every day, but would not even get near that feeder. When corn got to $7.00 a bag, I quit buying it all together and it hasn't impacted my ability to inventory my deer one bit.

I have my cameras over licks in the summer, food plots in early fall and scrapes once things heat up. Works great for me.

And by the way, I'm certainly not trying to sound like a know it all. I'm just trying to save you a few bucks by sharing my experience with you. Good luck this year!

It's different when you hunt in a state you can bait in...which I think rem270 is using his camera in ky.

Here you can sometimes pattern good bucks over corn early. I'll start putting out in the next week or 2. Usually about 20# at a time till I hone in on a bigger deer I want then he/they will get more and more regular.
