My club has 5 feeders set up with not very much action on them and they have been set for 2 months. Is it a good idea to put any other food attractants nee by ( such as salt blocks,deer cane , cob corn)? Also should you put feeders in same area as food plots( visible from same stand)? We are new to feeders and trying to get them to give us best results possible hopefully saving on cob corn cost.

What are you useing in the feeders now? Do you use trail cams? Which state, and what are your laws about hunting near or at feeders? I sometimes add wild bird seed, they love it. I would think, if you have food plots why bother with feeders unless you have trail cams and want to see what's around. I would think that feeders would be more usefull later on when food plots are done and gone and harvests are done. With feeders later on, you can keep your deer in the area. I like mineral blocks for installing a mineral lick. Have seen bucks come to a mineral lick before comming to a feeder.
