Didn't know you were a fellow MISSOURIAN! I'm in Randolph Co.

I'm like you, I want to help the herd out as much as I can as well, but I just don't have the money. I think people can do too much as well with trying to "help". I know alot of guys who visit their feeders and mineral licks on a weekly basis. The best thing to do is leave it and get out- for at least a month. let the deer grow accustomed to it. Even if they clean up the corn pile in a week- they'll keep coming back to it even though it's gone- they'll smell it. Then after a month, refresh it. I truely think that's the best thing to do.
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
