If you are planning to stand hunt, one of
the common methods is a deer feeder or some other kind of feeder to attract deer to bring
them in close enough to get a shot. Common obviously the most common type of feed to
use is corn. There is also protein feeders and various other feeders. You can also besides
using a feeder you can drive in put corn out as your driving in to help attract the deer.
Typically corn feeders run, you can set them as many times a day as you want, but typically
they run once in the morning and then once in the evening to kind of go around your hunting
periods and hunting times. The fence if you are in an area that has javelina or hogs or
other type of animals. Deer typically do not like feeding with these animals and they can
come to dominate a feeding area. You can set up a fence around the deer feeding, the deer
feeder and the deer feeding pen to help prevent the hogs or javelina from getting this corn
and preserving it for your deer so that the deer develop a regular pattern. Typically
a deer, you want the feeder to be set up 3 to 4 weeks in advance of hunting season so
the deer get use to the sound of it spinning and create the instinct for the corn coming
out for the deer to come feed.
