    in some places they love them, others, they just rot.
    i know one farmer that was losing around $15,000 a year from pumkin loving' deer. he had to stop planting them.

    They love them but sometimes burn their noses on the candle.

    I tried pumpkins for bait last year for the first time. The deer tore into them. One day I was in the stand during Muzzleloader and a nice doe came within 15 yards of my bait. The deer stayed there for 10 minutes with its head down feeding on something. It was behind cover so I could not get a clear shot. I could not figure out what it was eating that would keep it from my bait. Then it lifted its head. It was shaking its head while holding an old pumpkin rind in its mouth from the last time I baited. This year I will pick up a truckload after Halloween to last me through the end of the year.

    I never had any luck with pumkins in zone 16.
    A couple years ago,I threw some out at Turkey Swamp,and nothing touched them.

    I have seen deer stomp on em and then stick their faces inside. They seem to like pumpkins a lot.
    No matter what happens, whether you succeed or not, if you stand up and do it right and pay attention, hunting will always give you what you need. It may not be what you were looking for, but it will absolutely be important enough to justify whatever you did to get it.”
