Re: Bring Deer Into New Land
Deer need food, water, shelter (cover) and during the rut a little lovin'
Since you cannot provide water, shelter or lovin' you're left with food. So I think you're on the right track. Corn is a poor choice though. Corn is a pure carbohydrate and a good energy source, but not what the deer need when they need to fatten up for the winter. You need to plant food plots with a preferred food source. In terms of geography, you probably need to plant them down close to the creek - this will entice them to cross.
Find out from your local game biologist the preferred crop for food plots. Also check into the legalities of your plan. Here in VA, you can plant them but after September 1 you can maintain what you have, but you cannot plant any new seed.
I'm not gonna shoot here. I'm gonna shoot waaaaaaaay over there!
