Break it open for them and they'll eat it up. I think that corn works better, plus you can spread it around and they have to search for it.
I have seen tons of deer in a field full of pumpkins up-state. but they didn't touch the ones I put out at the feeder last year. Corn usually works.
our deer aint never ate pumpkins but they eat corn
deer eat pumpkins some i even saw crush it with their hooves to eat
i saw a deer eat a pumpkin but i think he was just testing...
I have heard both answers on this one. I would think they would, I know they love the flowers on squash plants and small pumpkins and squash. Had to chase them out of the garden before!
deer eat the insides early on when the pumpkin is 1st put out then later in the season when food is scarce they come back and eat the rines..
I put our pumpkins and the deer eat them. It works better if you smack them on the ground and break them open. We also have bear and I suspect that they ate some of them too.
