Everything That Makes A Living In The Woods Eats Corn
Don't know if this totally accurate or not, but I'm going to run some tests and see what results I get. I'm pretty sure it is probably right though. Close friend and former classmate in forestry school told me this a day or two ago. He specialized in wildlife management and my specialty was forest management---natural environment, not commercial forestry. Anyway, we were talking about deer coming to my corn hull pile big time apparently due (I thought) to a high sugar content in corn grain hulls. My friend, Jim, says the deer are after the non-gmo aspect of the hulls, and not the higher sugar content. He said if I wanted proof, to get a 50 pound bag of WalMart deer corn, dump it out on the ground and 20 or so feet away dump out 50 pounds of my non-gmo corn that I use in my grits business. He says that without fail the deer (squirrels, coons, birds, everything) will eat every grain of the heirloom corn before touching WalMart corn or any gmo hybrid. I'm going to check this one out!
