Deer will not come to my tripod feeder or my homemade gravity feeder that is strapped to a tree.

Nothing works will a good old corn pile.

I have 2 tri pod feeders on my property, and it took about 3 weeks for the deer to get comfortable with the feeders. One has been out for 5 or 6 weeks, and bucks still wont use it, only does. But, I have a cuddeback Expert on the feeder and see bucks moving behind the feeder in video mode.

In my experience mature bucks will not come into a feeder during the day. But, they will follow the does and yearlings that will come into the feeder. It does take time for the deer to 'find' the feeder. But they will come. After a while they will hear the sound of the feeder going off and come running in to feed. Keep an eye out in the brush. That is where Muey Grande will be.
