    Legally you have to immediately stop feeding the corn
    otherwise you're unintentionally, illegally feeding the bears, which is a punishable offense.

    I had the same problem several years ago and that's what the GW told me.

    As long as you're feeding corn they will NOT leave.

    That's why I started planting food plots and continue to do so.

    I still occasionally get a wandering bear come through, but if they're is no corn they just keep moving along.

    Food plots and hunting houses is the one of the best things that I've done to produce better hunting for myself and boys.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that bear will eat about anything.

    Bear love clover, especially in mid to late November when other food sources are getting hard to find. They will just lay down and eat everything within reach then just move a few feet and do it again.

    Do a google search for Bear eating food plots, you’ll find that many bear hunters plant food plots to lure bear.



    I hate bear............

    I read we’re some guys had used ammonia or bleach in a five gallon bucket cut holes in the lid set it out and it had stopped the bear burns there noses but don’t know how deer would react to that.

    From what I hear, if corn is present, they will stick around. I’d just cut off the corn for a couple weeks. I’d say deer not gonna hang around if bears are regular.
