    Try to get on a good trail coming out of the corn to a water source. It's harder to get up with a deer when the corn is still up but if you can get between him and his water source he's gotta drink sometime...:noidea:

    I set up along the nearest bedding areas to the corn. Thats really the only success I have had hunting standing corn. Also try and find a few main trails the deer are using to move in and out of the field, and get in between and water.

    Bedding area..

    I have done good hunting bedding areas in standing Corn...I like to find small stands of tree's or drainage lines.Sink holes are perfect ambush areas as well..The trick is getting there before the Deer do....Plan on getting there about 2 hrs before sunrise...Dont be surprised if they bed on the outskirts of these areas,they dont really need to go deep into these type of areas...

    find a low spot leading into the corn, from good cover, and look for sign, I usually find the corn is eaten up on the edge where they are entering it.

    The two farms I hunt both have corn each year.
    When the corn is up I hardly see a deer, they tend to stay in the corn.
    Like everyone else said, I've find a trail leading to a water source.

    Thats my way. Find travel routes between food and bed and you will be all hooked up. I like tree lines myself.
