Default when will the deer come

I put a trail cam out Monday and a mineral block and yesterday I put out some corn. I thought I put it near a deer trail.Should I move the camera, the corn, and the mineral block or leave it

Patience is the key to success,,you need to wait longer before you check it or your going to push the deer out of the area.

I does sound like you are visiting to much. I personally put out the corn and camera, come back in a week. If not much activity than I move it. I usually find that putting out a mineral block takes a lot longer for them to come to, but when they do it is a hot spot. With mineral blocks, I usually put them out for about 3 weeks while I have my cameras elsewhere, then if there is a lot of activity after 3 weeks I'll put a camera on it. They seem to like the minerals a lot more once it soaks in the ground from rain. With corn, if they are in the area they will find it in a couple days.

If You have the camera set over the salt and mineral block You need to set the camera to take 1 or 2 pictures every 1 to 5 minutes or You'll have a ton of pictures of the same Deer over and over.Once You know whats coming in set it to take less pictures over a longer time period and You won't use up valuable space on the SD card.
