I’ve heard somewhere, and honestly sounded like bull **** to me....pour diesel fuel over it. Hogs will eat it, deer won’t.
. Paul you might want to call the game warden for your area and see what he says about your feeders and hunting over them. good luck shooting pigs.
To keep deer out of the corn, soaking it down with diesel fuel will work just fine. Another method that I KNOW that works in Florida and elsewhere takes a little sweat equity. Take a post hole digger and dig a few holes about 8-10 inches deep and pour in corn to about half the hole depth, and cover with dirt. The hogs will smell it and root it out, but the deer (and nosy freakin' cows) won't bother it. Hogs have great sense of smell and are used in France to find truffle mushrooms.Eating hog meat from hogs that have eaten corn laced with diesel fuel won't hurt you. A hogs stomach can digest just about anything. I've seen hogs eat coal from a coal pile, and even charcoal briquettes from a bag they tore open. They are omnivores and will eat just about anything, including the gut piles from a field dressed deer.They also relish the clay skeet and trap targets, and will eat them to excess. Deadly food for hogs, too, if they consume too mhttp://www.huntinghog.com/food-habits-of-feral-hogs/clay-pigeons-are-toxic-to-feral-hogs/
"Supplemental feeding" is legal here, but there are set guidelines between "feeding" and "baiting"Here's the langauge, as published by the state in the '18-'19 regs magazineThe“Area Definition” is still in effect. Regulation 220-2-.157, “as it applies to the hunting of deer and feralswine, there shall be a rebuttable presumption thatany bait or feed located beyond 100 yards from thehunter and not within the line of sight of the hunter,is not a lure, attraction, or enticement to, on, or overthe area where the hunter is attempting to kill ortake the deer or feral swine. “Not within the lineof sight” means being hidden from view by naturalvegetation or naturally occurring terrain features.”
