    Why do you need Jello?

    If you have deer they will find the corn eventually.

    I have a buddy from S.C. that comes up to hunt with me, he has tried dumping corn at his place in S.C., it rotted. The deer would not eat it.

    Scatter it near a trail, but wear your rubber boots. In about 4 or 5 days they will be all over it. I like to take a xacto knife and cut the bag then just sling it every where. I like to make them work for it by not piling it up.

    I have noticed that if the deer aren't used to corn being a food source then they take a little longer to come to it! Once they find it they will eat it! If you have lots of coons or turkey around, they maybe getting most of it! Try adding some natural food source that is in your area and keep your scent down as much as possible!

    oh give it time...if they dont eat the corn eventually they are filling up on something real sweet...and when you find out what it is you just go ahead and tell all of us over here
     
  12. Sometimes you just get a bad bag of corn. I had two spots this year that the corn went sour and not even the racoons ate it. Try a new spot. Preferebly one that has some deer sign.


    *It is unlaw to use/hunt over corn in Georgia.

    I had deer coming to my corn pile for months until my neighbors' dogs found it and now they wont even touch it. I'm sure they pissed all over it. It really aggravetes me but what do you do? I've got them on camera every morning checking out the corn pile.:mad:

    Beat me to it.

    I say, starting out, put out an old piece of plywood with FREE spraypainted on it. Use red if you have it.

    I actually use to sprinkle it down deer trails in the woods and they would come right to the pile . Now they know where they get the goodies so they just come . I use to also put peanut butter on the trees and that would help alot .
     
  18. What you need to do is get ACORN involved with organizing and then label it as part of Obamanomics plan. Those free loading deer will stand in line for free corn. :rolleyes:
