Stalking Whitetails in Corn?

With how windy it is supposed to be tomorrow I might try walking a couple corn fields.  All my bowhunting stuff is surrounded by corn and wind is'nt right for stands.  Any of you do this b4?  Any suggestions?

Not legal withough owners permission, is it?

I've heard windy tomarrow, but that changes every 5 minutes.  I've hunted in the unharvested corn, with permission and had very good luck.  We've just set up next to the well worn path going into the field.  Good luck!

Being an unharvested crop you do need permission to hunted it. Once permission is granted it can be a blasted! Especially later in the season. Using the wind in your favor you can zigzag through the field and walk right up to them. I usually look down a row before stepping into it, than cruise down about 10 yards and cross another row. Once a deer is spotted just move over one or two rows and move towards the deer until within your bow range, then draw your bow and slowly step over into  the row the deer is bedded, letter fly! Works best if the deer is facing the opposite direction. Good luck!

I have never thought corn was a crop you need permission to hunt in it does not say any thing about it in the proclamation just unharvested ceral and oil seed, winter wheat, alfalfa nothing about corn but its still makes a happy land owner if you ask any time and every time.

Might give it a try, the problem is the corn fields seem a little more dense than any Ive walked in b4.  And the permission has already been granted.

Why cant you put any stands or blinds up on the edges? Unless you dont have trees around i would put somthing up. Ive had some really good success hunting the edges of these fields from a stand. Also see if the farmer has a above pic of the corn or see if you can get one on google, then find where the skips are. Alot times a skip can be 5-10 yards wide by 30-50yards big. Just set up a ground blind at one of the edges and wait. Not the most fun bc you can see anything coming but it will surprise you how many deer walk into your view. Just be ready bc you wont get much time to shoot.
