    Just wondering how much corn hunters put out a week. I dump 50 lbs on ground once a week. Somebody told me the more the better.

    How long is 50 lasting? The object is to entice deer to come everyday. If it runs out day three and you hunt on day 5 all you have down is supplemental fed them. Some areas 50 lbs won’t last 3 days some it might last 10.

    Lord I’m not sure I want to admit how much we put out hahah. We buy a gravity wagon full a month. I’d say at least 600lbs a week. That’s scattered on 4 or 5 farms though all pretty close together

    6” pvc pipe with a Y on end and cap 6 foot tall will hold 50 lb bag. That’s what I done this year and it’s not wasted as much.

    I have one 200# Boss Buck out this year and I'm averaging about 150# per week. I may put the second one out at the first of November. Last year with 2, I went through about 200# per week.
    What's interesting is that while they were only about 50 yards from one another and insight of one another, there were deer that would hit one but not the other. Strange critters, deer...

    Dumping on the ground, I couldn't afford to keep up with it. I have an enormous amount of resident turkey in addition to the deer, and 3 raccoons. The last time I dumped 100# on the ground it was gone in less than 2 days. The Bluejays (I stopped counting at 30), tipped the turkey off, and they cleaned it up from sun up to sun down in one day. I've got photos somewhere...
