    Hogs and catfish love sour corn but not much luck with seeing deer eating it. Don't know about the sour soybeans... none around here.

    It sounds like your corn is rotting and molding, instead of fermenting. As for deer eating it, they are likely to pass if other sources are available. True sour corn will definately be eaten by hogs. I had a squirrel open the top of a feeder, allowing a bit of rainwater to get in and start the fermentation process. By the time I got to it, it smelled like whiskey! The corn was warm and soft and had a sweet and sour smell, so I dumped it for the hogs and racoons. With all of the acorns on the ground, the deer aren't very interested in corn of any kind.
