I planted two, 2 to 3 acre, plots of corn last summer and it did great with all the rain, each stalk had 2 big ears of corn on them. I could pick the corn and throw the ears out by a feeder and the deer would eat the ear corn before they'd hit the feeder, but they wouldn't touch it on the stalk. I don't think they knew what it was, until about late Nov or ealy Dec, when they finally realize what it was, they they mowed it down. They wouldn't eat or pull it off the stalk though, they'd ride the stalks down to the ground and then they'd eat it.

Years ago we planted 2 fields of alfalfa, it did real good and I figured I'd have the deer hunt'n cornered around here, cause it was the only alfalfa within 50 miles of here. It took the deer 2 years before they ever used them, after they got started on it, you couldn't run them off of it, but for the first 2 years there weren't even tracks in it. That 3d year I was all ready for bow season, I could watch 15 to 20 deer in that alfalfa field any morning or afternoon I wanted all summer. I had that field ringed with tree stands and was just waiting for Oct. 1 to roll around. Then in late Sept the acorns started falling, bumper crop that year, and the deer quit that alfalfa overnight and didn't hit it again until the acorns ran out in late Dec.
