    Baiting is not feeding. Scatter small amounts of corn (5-10 #), so they have to spend time looking for the kernels. They will come back at dawn to look for it. Big piles and feeders turn them nocturnal.

    This is very effective this time of year but scatter the whole bag so they have to forage for it

    Longbow's exactly right. This time of year, with the advent of colder weather and seasons winding down, deer, especially the older, mature bucks, have one think on their minds: FOOD. Dump 150#s of corn in an area that gives them some cover to feed in yet access to you to hunt and get out, Always plant food plots or bait areas based on stand locations first, find the tree based on wind direction, access/exit, then put the food in. Like longbow said, put out corn and they WILL find it.

    Because they know that the corn is always there, and they don't really have to look around for it it's in a pile.

    Another good strategy is to hunt the funnels. Find areas where the terrain comes together. They will use it as travel routes.

    500 pounds of corn + no pressure=bucks in daytime. 500 pounds of corn +pressure=no bucks in daytime.
