There are many ways to attract deer. Foremost is food source. Just a corn pile by itself is not very effective. Feeders are considerably more effective however, just putting feed out will not hold deer. That requires habitat manipulation and that is far to deep a subject to deal with here.
Sometime later this year, I will have a four-part series on whitetail management. Perhaps that will help you for next year.
BTW-Make sure feeding/baiting is legal in your state.
