Default Disappointed...

Went to the lease today to clean, fill feeder, and check the game cam. 25 days and only one doe showed up on cam for a few days, tons of pigs though. I barely started feeding a month ago Iím sure that can be a reason but Iíve hunted the same spot for a few years. The lease has never produced a large amount of deer or quality animals... Hopefully more deers find the feeder quick.

Pigs could be running them out.

Hope it turns out better soon!

Those deer will show up... this same type thread happens every year.
Just starting corn only means you didnt waste money.

I feel the same way every year about this time. They donít start hitting the feeders hard till about November at our place.

We're only seeing a few deer now. But lots of pigs.
I feel confident the deer will start showing up as the temps drop.

Deer are eating my corn and I only started them a week or so ago. Hogs, however are hitting it hard. I’m about to pen my big feeder next week but my two tree feeders will just have to go unpenned as the whole object is to make them unobtrusive. I need to get off my azz and shotgun those hogs though ....
