Land of the Whitetail
I've wanted to put out alfalfa bales and corn for a few years now after seeing and hearing how it really helps with finding some sheds due to it helping to keep the deer close. I put out three square alfalfa bales and 100 lbs of corn in a spot saturday evening and put a cam over it. Starting Sunday morning all the way to right now as I type this I have had deer on it nonstop. Maybe have gone 1 hour without something on the pile. I think my cell cam batteries are going to die out quick! Already upped that cam to unlimited pics. Pretty crazy. Anyone done this? Is this normal that they just are pounding the pile this much or just a bit of a fluke to start off. Might have to put out more bales/corn sooner than I thought. Im sort of worried that this could be bad for their stomachs too, as I have read about that. This little timber patch butts up to a huge corn/bean field section though, so they should be accustomed to it?
