View Full Version : They're scared of my feed trough

September 28th, 2010, 02:34 PM
built a homemade covered feed trough to keep the rain off the pellets. the bad thing is, the deer haven't touched it. they're scared of it. i've got pics of deer that have walked about 10 feet away looking at it, and wanting to have a snack, but they just won't do it. the coons and the squirrels don't seem to have a problem though. it's been out there for about a month now so i would think they'd be used to it. how can i get them to come in to it?

Dump some corn on the ground and make a line to the trough....they will come

done that but not with corn. i don't use corn, all the little critters eat it before the deer get on it. didn't work..
