celery for deer

I've got some celery that I'm going to toss. Should it go to the mulch pit or in the woods? Don't want to spook any deer but I was thinking they'd smell the chlorophyll and know it's edible.[confused] Any thoughts if they eat this stuff.

I'm sure something will eat it, and if not then it will just break down and rot in the woods just like in the mulch pit ;
they will eat it!!! especially with a little molasses drizzled over it!!
do deer smell corn or do they just see it? i was thinking about throwing some apples out because i know they will smell apples for sure

thats what I initally do when I first bait a spot so they find it quicker[up]
Pitch it. I've tossed celery, romaine lettuce, broccoli they won't eat it. Walk right bye to eat holly leaves[spy]
guy i hunt with takes his tomato plants and makes a pile in the woods at the end of summer. they leave nothing left
I put some celery in my back yard. Sat out for weeks with nothing touching it. Apples/corn is gone within a day or two.
They ate my lettice,celery, cabbage at my diner. Took them a while but it was eaten. Took a while to eat the sweet potatos to but eventually did.
I always notice my corn is gone first then my apples...pumpkins take a while for them too[confused]
I usually empty my fridge once a week or so of veggies, as well as old bread, and I can tell you that they DON'T like green beans :)
Well... the deer pretty much eat everything else... especially this time of year.
I can throw some corn in a couple of new spots before a snow and the next night they will find it and dig it up so I believe they can smell corn even thru ice crusted snow which we had a few weeks back. Same thing wih acorns, they don't dig randomly;) Deer are still chewing on shrubs walking right past celery, romaine heads[mad]. Anybody else have to sweep pellets off your sidewalk[wallmad]
I used celery this year and the deer do eat it. I put out around 120lbs of it and I guess they ate half of it. I had out corn, celery, apples,sweetfeed and sliced carrots. they will eat it at there leasure. try putting out a little at a time to see if they will hit it. sometimes if you put out too much it is hard to determine how much they are eating. goodluck[up]
I came accross a seat on Saturday that was baited with green cabbage. It looked like the deer had not touched it. I don't know if it was because they don't like cabbage or due to the fact that this guy drove his quad all the way to the bait pile. I walked the "path" from where he parks his truck to his seat and it took less then 10 minutes. Some people are really lazy.
