Default What should I do?

I have been hunting a 350 acre piece of property all season. Here in NC bow season came in mid-september. I have pictures of 5 different buck that i would consider shooters. Two of which are 130+ deer. All of the pictures i got were before bow season and were during shooting hours. I have baited the deer since august and will continue to do so. The problem is that almost to the date of the beginning of gun season the deer have flat out stopped eating corn. I am seeing rubs and scrapes but every time i hunt i see nothing. There is one other guy who is hunting the land and he is seeing the same thing. What should I change or any opinions on the different pattern. I mean deer are smart animals but i didn't know they knew when our seasons changed. Any opinions?

scout a little bit and find out where there travel routes are and set trail cameras to find out when the bucks are moving and when. but dontset up right on the travel route just set up somewhere where you can see the trail.
