    I have a few whole pumpkins leftover from Halloween and was wondering if I can put them out by my corn pile for the deer? Anybody ever done this?

    I'm not sure but I'd probably cut them in half or something.
  4. I bust them up and put them out by my rice bran every year and they've never eaten them..:shrug:
