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.

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!

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.
