If you're trying to feed them for health, there are better things like food plots and such. But for bait, you can't beat corn.

Deer really eat a varied diet and if you check the stomach contents of a few you will see what I mean. They will eat some of a lot of different things. I cut an 8 points stomach open one time and it was over half mushrooms. I think acorns would be their favorite, but they won't just eat acorns.
