Default Corn Near Corn Field

I have some land that is heavily wooded and I am wanting to hunt it because there is tons of deer around me. My problem is the land has huge corn fields close by. Would me using a feeder with corn be a problem getting them to come to my location since they have corn readily available or is there something else I could do to help my odds.

If you can get some toasted beans feed I'm sure that would bring them over.

If not, I'm confident a corn feeder would attract deer. Deer have to travel to get to the fields, if your feeder is closer for them they will eat that corn vs going the extra distance to the corn fields. Also, if there is any water near by I would set up there but that's my personal opinion.

The corn should be about ready for harvest. They will find your corn feeder and start coming into it. It may take a little longer but think it's fine. Just my opinion though

Yes they will find it. I hunt about 500-600 yards from a corn field, and have no problem seeing deer during the season at my feeder
