    Same thread every year. Drive 3 T posts in a triangle shape. Stretch bungees from post to post. Pour corn in center. Can't hurt the deer and you will get a few.

    It doesn't matter what kind of contraption you build or how many miles you walk or where you look you won't find any if you start looking before they are on the ground.

    I have half the bucks on my cameras with 1 or both gone. On my Ohio farm none have both sides.

    If you look in the Trail Cam forum at the buck I posted with twine all wrapped in his antlers, imagine that being wire and that's how I picture an antler trap

    I've always just used a bunch of small trees in a group. Pour corn in the middle and make them dig in

    I thought about pouring corn in a blowdown but I'm not sure they would be as willing to use it.

    I agree 100% I have thought about taking some old woven wire maybe 4 feet tall and making a small pen so to speak maybe 10'x10' and throwin some corn in the middle. would facilitate them losing them naturally where u want without fear of them getting entangled in anything. shed hunting is more fun for me than actually harvesting a buck. I can shoot does for meat.

    Nope. I've only had one doe coming into the corn in the last week.

    Don't bother........they aren't worth the trouble unless they are in your back yard and you have 100s of deer close by.
