Food Plot 7 - Pioneer Field Corn

Utilization based on game camera survey on this crop choice + evidence of use

Growth Results

I had great results with Field corn in the past and I wanted to kill a bear on my property. So I picked this roundup ready variety of field corn and it came up fantastic. The stalks were 8 inches tall and every stalk had two cobs on average. Cobs averaged 9-10 inches.

Activity Results

Deer activity took a while. The bears didn't hit the corn that hard in September like they did last year with my sweet corn plot. In fact, the corn drew more coyotes than bears! In October, the deer started hitting this plot and by December there were deer all over this cornfield.


Corn is always interesting to me. My previuos corn plots only drew bears. For some reason, this one drew primarily deer. Corn is expensive to grow and I'm sure I'll try it again, but I need a break from corn for a while.
