I wouldn't use it. That "dust" is probably mold from being old. I doubt that deer would be very interested in it.

I ask because my uncle who usually buys the corn each year was ripped off by a local supplier who sold him bad corn, so now all that we have to feed the deer with is last year's corn.

If it's too "dirty" for the deer, the turkeys will take care of it! Just feed it!
I used some wheat one year that looked like a pastel yellow smoke grenade every time the feeder went off!! LOL!!
Funny as all get out!! The deer wouldn't touch it but the turkeys went bananas!!! LOL!!

Do you like to spread diseases? Then use it.

Bubba thanks for the tip but unfortunately for me I don't have a clue as to how to turkey hunt. Lord knows I'd love to learn but the people that I hunt with don't do it and just out of manners I'd never ask my friends to go with them. But I'm glad that some of us get to enjoy it! Have fun out there. Good luck and good hunting!

The deer will probably still eat it, bugs will not have an effect on the deer. If it's mold, that will probably also have no effect, as deer eat fungus too.

I put out 3 bags of old corn last Sunday at my buddies stands. It was gone by Wednesday. So yes they will eat it.

just buy new feed instead of takeing the risk of harming your deer .it would be safer to just buy a bag or too and trtow it out and get to hunting

We don't have enough money to afford new corn (we buy it in bulk from farmers), but we have recently gotten a hold of a lot of acorns and one of the farmers that we hunt for has a soybean field. Also I am planning to get permission to glean some soybean fields after the harvest.
