    Can anybody explain why the deer in my photos arent interested in the corn, salt licks or buck jam? They lie in front of it in the grass for hours and dont bother with it. They do eat the "weeds and reeds" i dont get it.

    I once caw deer eating the new growth in my shooting lanes but ignoring the soybeans in the field the stand backed on. They seem to eat certain foods at certain times.They will hit salt licks often but other attractants seem to garner sporadic interest. Also what works in one location sometimes doesn't elsewhere. Deer won't touch corn in some areas I have placed it but clean it up elsewhere. Also some places with lots of hunters provide other options. This time of year salt works best for me. Come fall things pick up.

      If you want trail camera photos of deer go out and buy horse feed with molasses. Even the fawns love it. I used horse feed last year and got tons of deer photos.
      Good Luck!

        deer will often target different food sources at different times of the year. Mineral licks seem to work best in spring to early summer for me. Then they seem to leave them alone for a few weeks and come back to them in late august early September (in MD).

        In the off weeks I try to add apples to the camera sites and they tear them up when the groundhogs aren't beating them to it.

        By mid September, they are back off the sites again and don't seem to bother with them again until feb-mar
