First of all welcome to D&DH!!! I have already put a feeder out just to see what is looming around the woods! My rule of thumb, If your going to us a feeder get it out early so the deer wil get use to it and the noise they make when it goes off, because they will spook the deer at first..
BTW We all open up cans of worms in these forums so just keep a open mind!
I would like to hear from everyone regarding how many month/weeks/days prior to opening day do you put out your deer feeder, or begin to spread corn?
