I never feed deer before. I set up 3 homemade gravity feeders. Put one at three different locations on a 105 acre area.The very first night all three feeders were emptied . Had 25 LBs of corn in each. The second night they ate 40Lbs at each feeder. Wiped them out.How many deer you thiink is dong this ? I will go broke.Oh and they ate a half bushel of apples.PLus they were eating on the green clover in the field.
i would say half your problem is coons and squirrels you need to trapem out of there i would say the only way to know for sure is to set up a game cam....but my guess is that youve got some fat and sassy coons up there!!
