Depends were you put your corn out would be the good or bad factor,never put It In beding areas.And If you only have a small amount of land and It has a good food source I wouldnt go In the area all the time to put corn out,I would just go when It was the better days to hunt It,dont over do it
Write or wrong in anyones opinion is just that. It is just another tool to use to harvest a deer as much as Camo, new calls, lures, scents, hi powered Muzzleloader. etc. It's within the law, so it's all good!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i read in outdoor life that putting corn out is a bad idea....because they said that bucks will associate it with humans and go nocturnal....or atleast that is what the study was....but they said that the older bucks will go more nocturnal than younger bucks....so in my opinion its a bad idea
i never have had any big bucks eat my corn during the day while i was there hunting have had alot of does and small bucks eat it. but most the time they eat it at night and most the bucks i have killed stayed away from the corn. but its good to have out cause when acorns and other stuff are gone they gotta eat something but you gotta get it out early
I have never killed a big buck that was eating on my corn pile, but I have seen big bucks in the general vicinity of the corn that were following does. During the rut, particularly the seeking and chasing phase, any available resource you have that will help to bring in and keep the does on your property will always increase your chances of laying eyes on the buck you're after. I say go for it!
Most of the guys I know including myself use corn to lure the deer into the general area. We rarely kill a mature buck right over the corn, but it keeps them close by and keeps the does around. It also works great for getting trail cam pics. My experience is that every place is different. I have some spots where the deer are almost waiting on me to put more out and other spots that always have plenty of corn left.
