Feeding

Can anyone tell me what to use when feeding deer that has a lot of hogs around. I have messed up by using corn first, i know that isn't the best thing. Want to feed the deer not hogs.

Fence....
Hogs will eat just about everything. If you're using automatic or timed feeders you need to build a fence around them. It doesn't take much just a short fence about three feet tall. Make it out of cattle paneling so they won't bust through. You do this and you can feed anything you want and they can't get to it but the deer will still be able to get in. You can also use hanging gravitational feeders that are to far off the ground for a hog to reach.

This Might Not Be What You Want To Hear....
I work offshore and some of the guys that I work with hunt in Texas... What they have to do is if they want to feed just deer is build a 3' high or so fence around their feeders making a corral.. The deer can easily jump over the fence and eat, but the pigs can't. They said it'll have to be a pretty sturdy fence due to hogs can tear it up trying to get to the corn. I talked to the guys that have our lease and we are considering doing that for next year.
