The first year we planted corn as a food plot we put out about 2 acres of corn and the deer did not respond to it the first year as they did seem not to know what it was, so in late Feb. and March we hand picked what we thought was the most of the corn. Then in April one of the guys brush hogged it and there was a lot of corn on the ground the turkeys flocked in and spent most of the day feeding, strutting, coming and going.
It stayed that way for about a week until we could get it plowed under which we were doing anyway to plant clover for the next year. We did not allow any one to hunt it until the 30 days passed. I drove past the field often, and did not see any turkeys after the first week or ten days. I don't know of any one hunting there and I am not aware of anyone taking a gobbler there that spring.
However, I can tell you the draw and holding of large numbers of turkeys while the bush hogged corn was on the ground was massive and to me an unfair advantage to set up on.
