Depends on where you are, what time of year it is and how you use it.

Farther north you go, and the later into winter it gets a corn feeder will bring deer in from everywhere.

This time of year in the south they'd almost have to step on it to pay it any mind if you have beans growing nearby... and once the acorns start falling..... forget it.

There are places out west where water is VERY scarce that a big hole full of water will be your pot of gold.

Bottom line is this... when food/drink is plentiful... nothing will make deer abandon all other forms of food to visit your bait pile.... but when there is little of nothing in the way of vittles... then almost anything will do the job.

Surely you aren't going to put our a pile of corn and then shoot the poor little creatures that come in to eat are you????

I prefer to hunt over one of my soybean or peanut fields.

I've found from vast experience that the sound of me leaving the woods is the surest way to attract deer to a given area...

Well learning how to spell helps. Deer read this too, only we dont know it lol.Apples and corn work great. Acorns have more nutritional value though.
