Corn is great but if you have a problem with coons in your area I would recommend a mineral rock instead. Every time I put corn down where I hunt and set my trail camera(s), I'll usually have 300 pics and about 250 are coons.

Look up www.brothersoutfitting.com. (Cullman, Al) they make a mineral called Buck Monster. If theirs a deer within a mile, it will find it. I've tried everything. Yeah your generic corn, salt blocks, apples, etc..., will bring deer in, but if there is other food around whether natural or other hunters put it out, you may get some pics. We've had deer on buck monster that afternoon. I'm in no way profiting by telling you about this. I've just found a good product that I believe in. I believe it's about $25/ bucket. A bucket does 2 spots.

"Best bait pile...Not Corn, not carrots, spoiled brussels' sprouts. See deer aren't just colorblind they're all-blind and they gotta rely on the ol'factory"

I maintain a salt lick at one of my locations. I pour 100 lbs of salt in it every year. They hit it from March until early September. I can inventory most buck within a mile radius. Done it for 10 years now.

Corn feeder helps keep the Coons from getting it all. Got 20 Turkeys everyday but thats fine cause I hunt them as well as Deer. Minerals are cheapest way since the coons do not bother them best as I can tell. Corn works well for me with free apples from my buddies apple tree. I likewise have a few Does that hog most of them but the Bucks get some as well. The bags of special Deer attractants I have not had much luck with because the coons get that and it's such a small amount for 9 to 18 bucks. I prefer a 50 lb. bag of corn for 9 bucks at the feed store last quite a while in my feeder. Molasses is a special treat for them at times, they love it. My feed store sells it by the gallon for about 2 bucks so it is a good draw at a cheap price.

I use my neighbors pear tree. He doesnt eat pears so by the fall i got several buckets full of pears from his trees. Previous neighbor planted them and they tend to do well. Been even thinking of planting on out in the woods i hunt in an opening just so i dont have to keep carrying them.
