Next year if I do any deer management, it will be from a bag marked "corn." Planted 3 smallish crops, adding up to an acre, this year including all the usual suggestions, and drew very few deer, and the ones that did come showed up only at night. From October to today, only 2 deer showed up in the daylight. I spent probably $100 on seed, and countless hours on the tractor turning and preparing and planting, and developed a nice crop that grew to 12-18" tall. For nothing! I hate baiting, but $100 will buy me enough corn for the season on my limited space, and will be a lot less time and energy. I am getting too old to put forth a lot of effort for no return. At least I can say I tried. Oh well, let's see if the turkeys like it!
