No guarantees with free range deer (especially bucks) in my area...they have a tendency to get dropped whenever they walk in daylight (and sometimes a nighttime). Our rules can't protect them if they roam off the plantation!

Does having a bear in the area ever scare the deer off? I guess what I mean, if a deer is in the field and a bear walks out at the opposite end of the field do the deer take off? I have never hunted in an area with bears.

It's actually worse than that, but yes, if there is a deer in the plot or near the feeder and a bear comes out, the deer is gone. It's amazing what a deer can hear and see. I've seen a bear approach the feeder from thick stuff downwind and the deer alert when he is still 200yds away. Didn't seem like there was any way the deer could smell, hear or see that bear, but they knew he was coming.

I had deer everyday at that feeder until that momma and cub came around. I'm talking 200 pictures a week of deer....last week, I got zero deer pics with those bears checking the feeder morning and night. I've been slinging soybeans the past few months because normally bears won't eat them, but I guess they've decided soybeans are better than nothing. You can forget about slinging corn until December...bears love that stuff.

Last year, I ran off a momma and 3 cubs about 3 times between 3pm and dark at that same feeder. Kinda comical how the cubs would stand on their hind legs and watch me approach (with my finger on the trigger). Made that evening hunt a waste of time.

This is them in the plot across the feeder in November of last year. And the same group in the spring of this year.

Yea, that's no good. At least with other critters like coyotes you can legally shoot them.

We definitely have huntable numbers of them, but our landowner that bought out St Joe won't allow us to take any this year. Hopefully next year they will change their mind. Bear and deer can co-exist on the same property, just not at a corn feeder! We've worked our plots up over the years so that they are a great year-round attraction, but nothing beats the power of corn.
