    I have had a corn feeder on one corner of my food plot and the dang hogs and coons were eating most of it, so I have switched to an all season gravity feeder and was planning on running protein all winter and into spring but the deer will not touch the corn or protein in the gravity feeder. My question is there something I should try or do to get them to eat from it or will it just take time? It's been out about 3 weeks with a camera running in it at all times.

    I never really had much of a problem. We have a very few bucks that for whatever reason, refuse to eat from the feeders. Those bucks (I think there are two) treat the feeders like they are bombs, they'll tip-toe their way under the feeder and eat spillage but just won't eat out of the tubes. It's funny to watch them on camera, I figured they'd eventually settle down and lear nto use them but they never have...all the other deer hit them like candy.
