I know turkeys love corn. You would have to have it all gone 10 days before season to be legal
Technically 10 days before hunting it. No hunting and put it out all you want. I throw a few handfuls out most evenings behind my house and just use whole corn.

I'd use whole corn if that is what you want.... "scratch" corn is busted up and will act like a sponge with water/rain.... it will mold/mildew.... which can also kill turkeys according to what I have read posted on here before. Whole corn would be more resistant as it's still a whole kernel.

Youth season is only 15 days away; if you plan on legally huting that area that's only 5 days for the birds to totally clean it up. Regular season is only 12 days remaining to eat it all.

I'll 2nd the wheat recommendation. The turkeys will love it, other critters aren't as likely to mess with it, and what isn't eaten will certainly sprout by then.

Crack corn has worked best for Turkeys for me,because it tends to last longer. Like some others said, make sure its gone way before you hunt near it.
