Land-Owner,

I think a three day deer hunt in central Alabama would do you a world of good. It would cost you some money, but would give you a lifetime of memories.

They would be happy for you to take a big fat doe or an antlered buck.

You may not see large groups of deer, but you would definitely see some big deer.

If you plant corn choose the variety you use wisely.
I have planted dozens of varieties of corn, sweet and field, and feed it to the squirrels.
If I put out three or four different varieties, which ones they prefer are gone before they even start the other.
I planted GMO field corn once and grabbed some out of a farmers field once, and they do NOT like it except if every thing else is gone.
Open pollinated flour types of corn are greatly preferred.
They like sweet corn but unless you get a old standard with strong stalks they will mostly be laying on the ground by deer season.
