    Default Late Corn Harvest

    I've noticed a lot of standing corn in zone 80. Just wondering if the corn caused problems in the controlled hunt. Not sure why it wasn't harvested earlier, I'm assuming its too wet.

    Didn't cause us any issues in 92B. Actually it never does for us. We sit on known travel corridors like we are archery hunting. I suppose if your a group that pushes the deer all day long then the deer will naturally head for the corn cover. I actually like the standing corn. I can slip in and out of my stand out of sight.

    Catastrophic event going on in ON corn fields. - disease. Crops are of no use to anyone/any purpose and the govt. is working on compensation + what to do with the corn.

    Some areas are worse off than others. For the most part it has been ok for the area we receive corn from. But the industry is working on a solution for those who have been effected. And until a final decision has been made as to whether to write the field off or not, the growers are waiting to see and harvesting their better fields first.

    Chickens and turkeys can stand it so wild birds should be ok
    Pigs can’t handle it at all
    Cattle not as bad as a pig but still not good for them

    Ethanol. Good use for it but the distillers grain by product which usually goes for feed don levels can be 3 times higher

    Burn it for heat

    Elevators will blend Don levels down to feedable levels


    Think it would be good idea to stock up on dog food if your brand contains alot of corn

    Standing corn is hard to hunt. It will be cut soon. Tough to hunt because if the property is small kills field hunting.

    Standing corn can also work to your advantage especially if the corn butts up against the bush. Watch the wind, walk the edges first and last light and it can pay off....but if the corn is away from the bush, even 10yds away, that technique doesnt work too well. For best results, that corn must go right up to the bush, leaving that narrow travel corridor between bush and corn that deer love to use so much.

    If the corn is away from the bush, just setup inside the bush (corners are good) with the wind in your favour and wait for the deer to walk out at first and last light, that technique can work too...
    I am not sure how this snow is affecting the removal of the corn but before the snow they were taking it off in my WMU pretty good...
    Either way, best of luck on your upcoming hunt

    Thanks Sharon. Sounds like a tough time for farmers and moulds aren't easy to control. This won't be a one year event.
