Deer can because they rechew there food like a cow, this grinds up the corn into a fine mash that is digestible, people can digest corn, we just dont chew the kernals good enough. This is evident by the whole kernels in the toilet. But the stuf covered in butter, salt and pepper is [EMAIL="d@m"]d@m[/EMAIL]n good.

Why would the corn kill the fish? That makes no sense, they would just pass it through their digestive system like anything else they eat that is not digestible. Can someone show me the regulations that say chumming for fish with corn is illegal. I have never done it but it sounds like it works.

It is illegal up north for trout fishing because of digusting.

The fish I caught was full of corn and nothing else and the corn kernals looked like they were to large to pass through its orfice, unless it can stretch a lot. Larger fish should be able to pass it with no problem, but the undersized fish I dont think could.

Though not a "farm boy"....
At one time I was a hunter and would shoot geese every now and then.
A farmer that I knew who had a few hundred dairy cows had spread out his cows poo on a field the day before and now there were hundreds of geese in it...
I asked him why and he said that he needed to adjust the wheels on his "corn smasher" (I use smasher cause I can't remember what he called it)
Corn crusher or feed mill; depends on which one he had. Corn crusher cracks dried corn into chunks for cows to digest. Feed mill shreds EVERYTHING fed into it. From description sounds like he had a worn out corn crusher.
Puzzled...I asked what that had to do with the geese. He gave me a lesson on corn.
Geese, ducks, crows, seagulls, most any bird will pick the corn kernels out of cow poop. So will raccoons, squirrels, and possums.
Someone said that it was illegal to fish for trout with it cause it would kill them...which simply can't be found anywhere.
I did find this info from Pennsylvania F&G who actually did studies on it....
"Commission fisheries biologist Tom Bender at our Benner Spring Fish Research Station conducted a study in 1992 that examined the impact of corn on trout. For the study, two groups of hatchery rainbow trout were held in separate tanks and tested for 54 days. In one tank, 20 rainbow trout (average size 8.3 inches) were fed a diet of whole kernel corn. In the second tank, 20 rainbow trout of the same size were fed a standard trout pellet diet.
During the 54 day study period, no mortalities occurred from trout of either study group. However, study results did show that the trout fed with a corn diet did not digest the corn particularly well. The growth observed by the corn-fed trout during the study period was only about half of that observed from the trout that were fed the standard trout pellet diet."
