How do I get whitetail bucks to come to my corn bait pile?? I have a deer camera over my pile and during the rut in early November i got many bucks on my camera. However all at night. I am wondering how to get them to come in now during December now that the rut is over. I would think they would need food like the does do because the same family of 3 does comes every single day but no bucks. Can you help me?
Since deer mark their territory, especially during the rut, you may have to move your corn pile. Obviously, the doe will still come around because they're not scared by a male deer marking his territory. The fact that you can't get any bucks around probably means that the deer you were seeing in November were marking their territory. The others aren't going to come back around because they don't want to go on another guy's turf. Also, are there other animals who are eating the corn? This, too, could affect whether or not the bucks are coming in. If they feel at all threatened, especially with it being hunting season, they are going to be hiding out and not so out in the open, especially since mating season is over. Good luck!
