Right now I'm feeding about 40 pounds of corn a day, they would eat a hundred if I put it out there. We have three feeders set up, one right by the deck and two farther back in the woods.

I'll feed until green up.

We buy it from a local farmer. For three months out of the year we feed about 1000 lbs a month.

The video and the "Out My Backdoor" music is fantastic. God Bless you for taking care of His creatures. You're the man!

I'll tell ya one thing to watch for if your feeding that much. Watch out. I was giving them just a bucket a day. My wife came home
and found 6 deer beded down in our yard. two were big bucks,and
one of them bedded down right off the deck. I've even had them
walk right up to the house and look into the windows. My wife kind
of freaked out about that, so I dont feed them anymore. I still have them all around though. I have two huge bucks, a 10 and a 12 point, I wish I could hunt them. I could bow hunt them right off of my kids swing set. Dang no hunting laws.

I love feeding the birds. We also put out corn and it really attracts both deer and turkeys. I love watching them. Husband plans on putting in a food plot this year.

Wow! I think that would be weird to be watching Seinfeld at 10:30 at night and all of sudden out of the corner of your eye is a buck watching you. Hey if that ever happen I don't think I could blame the deer for peering through the windows to watch Seinfeld, that Kramer puts on quite a show.
