OK , I checked the area.All deer tracks,no bear tracks or coon. When I put the corn there it was a mixture of thick rye grass and clover. Now there is a 8 foot circle of bare dirt with deer track on top of tracks. Looks like a elk hole. Then I talked to a neighbor who owns 400 acres down the road. ( not adjoining but close). He said he only shoots bucks 8 Pt and better and never shoots does. He made a count this spring and said he has seen around 120 doe and around 60 buck on his 400 acres. I dont know this for a fact,just what he said. When I drove up the driveway I seen a wall of tails entering the thicket. Pulled up within 40 yards of the feeder and after 10 minutes five deer came back,along with 2 buck,then finally 11 more doe. I went up to the other feeder at the gas well site and that had deer in it.All took place at 12:30 PM. To bad I probably only have 1 year to hunt it.

I don't think it matters if the corn is cracked or whole. Deer chew their cud and grind it up anyway.

Look at those little stink pots in that picture! LOL! Man back in the day when I was a young man we'd be getting the Walkers out and treeing some of em for a good blasting. You dont get much $$ for a coon hide anymore. Coon hunting is a good time especially when you have a bunch of people going. Well I think you probably have a mess of deer visiting that feeder and coon/possums to boot. Find a coon hunter(s) and let them take care of business for you.
