All these corn threads, and it's making me wonder. I sometimes bait game cams with corn, but I've heard different theories on the type of corn to use. The lady at the Co-Op says deer like whole kernel corn better. I've read elsewhere that whole kernel is harder to digest and to use only cracked corn. |
And BSK told me to use only certified corn to help prevent deer and turkeys from suffering from the aflatoxins associated with "bad" corn. And others have said never to pile the corn up, to spread it around so the corn doesn't grow mold in a pile and harm the animals.
So what's the way to go? Whole or cracked, piled or spread, or maybe never bait your cam with corn?
It is not the killing ...; it is the contest of skill and cunning. The true hunter counts his achievement in proportion to the effort involved and the fairness of the sport.
