I just got back from checking a bait pile cam, notice the times.

This is really my first experience with a bait pile and camera, but if young bucks come at night, well...

I started using corn feeders & bait sights last year! I have 4 moultrie feeders hung i trees & 4 more bait sights! its just a lot of fun for me & I see deer every sit! i need to thin the doe population anyway and if you think a big buck won't come in during daylight your crazy in my book! I have had several big bucks come in during daylight and the colder the better! I have had the best results scattering the corn in a large area and really making them work for the corn! this is more natural as well. more like acorns falling from trees and a 50 lb sack of corn will last a good week if not longer! I don't always hunt right over it either and the reason I have 8 different spots is so I don't have to hunt them but about every 10-14 days! very little pressure! If I get picture of a big buck on a station I won't hunt it til I get daylight pics! This is just my experience! Take for what it's worth!

Funny thing is last night there was a picture on the local news of a dr. who killed a 180 a couple of nights ago that had just started showing up at his camera & the pic of the deer showed corn in the background as well as the treestand! key is you have to be pretty close to there bedroom!

The key to late season baiting, is early season gathering. I gather (or did) white acorns all fall, and store them for just this time of year. Works like a charm, good luck! Knocked my horns down early this year!
