not sure what to tell you.all i can say is i never had corn sit on the ground long enough to become moldy.usually between the deer,turkeys,squarells,an sometimes raccoons it doesnt go bad.corn will become moldy after a pierd of time.but the deer will still eat it.although i recomend you get rid of it if it does become moldy.pretty sure it will eaither make the deer real sick or even kill them.

Exactly--I see so many guys throwing out 100lb bags at a time..you only need a little bit--throw it out like you are spreading fertilizer.

I'm one of those guys.lol there are a couple reasons why I do though.#1 I dont have the time to bait more than a couple times a week. and #2 I'm always afraid if I dont bait alot the damn turkeys or something else will eat it up before the deer even get a chance. I dont bait 100lbs at a time but I will put out about 40 to 50 lbs at a time but I also spead it around every where that i can get off a shot. not to mention I also use sweet potatoes just in case the corn does disapear

Good point..I guess if you cant get out to replenish than you would need more...Ive found though that once they know its there they will keep coming back--even if there is none left..especially when it gets cold.

I have had the same problem in the past, TIME!!!!! What I have found works best for me is to spread it out like broadcasting by hand. I can throw 75-100lbs around in a 20yd circle pretty good. What I find is that even when most is gone the deer come in and brouse around looking for that last kernel under a leaf somewhere. When this happens you know sooner or later your going to get the shot.

if you use potatoes also why not load up on potatoes so you dont have to go back so often? if you ever have watched deer in a pile (without spookin or shootin) youll notice they only stay so long and move on just like eating natural forage.buy a bin of taters put out and your good for a long time, its alot of work but you only have to do it once. get a buddy to help than help him
