Don't need a trail cam and corn will change the deer's pattern any way.
Just walk in the woods and see where they are going in the snow and if you use your eyes you will see the limbs on shrubs they have nipped off the pawing in the snow under oak trees to get acorns, pawning in the snow to get a bit of green and dry grass and weeds. Find their beds in the snow where it has melted from their body heat loss.

I just took mine down. I had it up until about a week ago, just to see who all still made it.

Got this one: http://www.huntingnet.com/forum/trai...il-camera.html

It is the easiest way to see what made it through but could change their behavior if supplemental feeding is used for too long. Also keep in mind corn is not always the best to use, instead mix some soybeans and/or oats in with the corn. As far as how long a bag will last, that is up to the amount of deer that use the area. I will say as deer find the feed more will follow. The area I feed in I could dump 50 lbs a day and it would not be enough.
