According to what DNR told me last night, any feed has to be off the ground 10 days prior to hunting, no exceptions.

In KY, I think it has to be off the ground starting  March 1.  That means that if the CO finds your corn pile on 3/2 and photographs it and then comes back on 5/2  and finds you close by with your call and your gun, you're toast.  Forget the fact that you went out on 3/3 and vacuumed up everything.

I see no problem with feed being put out to help the birds during winter and to attract them to your hunting ground as long as your not hunting over a pile of feed when season comes in. I put feed out in different areas where I hunt to help the birds during harse winters. But. I limit the amount and frequency so the birds do not come accustomed to relying on the feed. If the birds get used to not having to forge for food it could have a reverse effect. Also. I don't want an unfair advantage. I enjoy the hunt. The areas I put feed are close to State game lands so it benifits everyone who hunts in the area. Not just me. I use cracked corn mixed with Beard Builder and a wildlife feed mix. As resposible Turkey hunters it's not enough to help keep the turkeys healthy during the winter months. We also have to think about whats fair and right. Just the way i look at it.

them ol' birds ain't stupid ,,, they know where the food is.
i like to feed 'em lots of big lies from a box , or a flat rock,,,but mostly from a thin latex reed.
