I was told corn has no nuttrional value to deer,not sure if it's so.They ate  around 300lbs from one feeder sight last year,so it must do something for them.

It doesn't help antler growth due to low protein content. It does have carbs to help them make it through the winter, and they like the taste.

It's basically just starch and simple sugars that turns to heat and energy that they use during the winter months.. It has no value for antler development.

we did a test last year, and found the deer we fed protien to came back only about every three or four days. The deer we fed straight corn to came back every day, sometimes two times. They love corn, just don't get much out of it. Feed protien after the season and through the summer, the swithc to corn for the season. You will get better antler growth, and see the deer more often.

Corn is about 10% protein but the quality is fairly poor. It is a good, high energy food and deer can fatten up on it for the winter. As for antler growth...it can contribute but it is not a super-food. It's greatest contribution is in the energy department.
If it wouldn't a been good
I wouldn't a done it.

The low contents of nutrition in corn doesn't help the deer much. It does help introducing mineral and protein feeders so the deer will eat.

Likewise here in the upstate (Anderson). Last year I paid $50 to fill two 55 gallon drums. This year it cost me $78 and had to go to a different supplier as my local source ran out.

Try mixing soybeans with your corn to get the deer some protien. Sometimes they'll pick over the beans but for the most part the corn will keep them coming in.

As stated above... doesn't help with antler growth that much. But just like stated several times above.... they love it. I use it after deer season to keep the bucks around so that it's easier to find antlers.

Plant food plots and use minerals to get their racks to grow.... and let them live longer.

you want protein with your corn add a little soybeans or soybean meal just dont let the stuff get wet it will rot bad, soybean meal is something like 47 % protein and the deer will eat it plan even dig a hole to get more if it stays DRY

From my understanding corn is good for deer, it's just that it does not have as much protein as some of the other stuff. I do believe that is what bohunter2000 said in the old forum, if memory services me right. Or it was something like that anyway!!!

i agree jr. they tear the corn up on my properties. i have found that it works better than anything else. i get my corn from a farmer for $3.00 for a 5 gallon bucket. usually go through about 20 buckets a season.

add rice bran to the corn or soy beans,it's good for nurseing does and will help maintain your bucks.You can buy it in a 50lb bag at some feed stores or co-op's
