I've already gone through 5 bags of Walmart's 40lb bags in two weeks, these deer are loving it!! $9 for 40lbs aint bad, but I'd rather buy it from a roller mill or a small mom and pop place. Years ago I bought it from Bethania's roller mill but they are no longer in business. Does anybody know a place around Winston to Yadkinville to get bulk deer corn?
Goodness just a decade a go I paid 6-7 dollars for 100lbs from the mill! Corn is high now. I could get it real cheap cobbed if I would get my lazy but out and pick it
I have killed bigger deer not baiting lately. I haven't used much bait in the last 3-4 years since the prices went up.
When the 2nd Amendment speaks of a “well-regulated militia,” it means local groups of individuals operating to protect their own families, homes, and communities. They regulated themselves because it was necessary and in their own interest to do so. The Founders themselves wrote in the Federalist papers about the need for individuals to be armed.
Gun control makes people demonstrably less safe--as any honest examination of criminal statistics reveals. It is no coincidence that violent crime flourishes in the nation’s capital, where the individual’s right to self-defense has been most severely curtailed. (Ron Paul)
I have just been putting out less this year. They will still be around to eat whatever you put out. I have found that small piles spread around seem to work fine, and I am not packing bags of cord around every week.
I have a herd in my back yard every evening. Did someone say "It's Bow Time"
Check with some of the local farmers. I don't feed the deer, but I do buy bulk corn and oats to feed my livestock. One of the farmers near Marshville, NC sells by the barrel. Just back the truck up under the auger and fill your own barrels. He charges me $40.00 per 55gal. barrel, which is a good bit cheaper than buying by the bag at the feed store.
I have been putting 4 different piles out, but it is just not lasting. I went a few days between feeding and put another bag out and the next day they had eaten down to the dirt. There used to be a bunch of hunters around Lewisville, a bag of food used to last a while, but now, I'm putting out a bag on Monday morning and by Wednesday afternoon there is nothing left. Apparently i'm the only one putting out corn around here. I'm not bow hunting, so it will be a while before I can harvest anything, but again just trying to see what is hanging around.
