i hunt turkey's in a corn feald near my house, last year turkey's where feeding in it every day; this year the corn is still standing, does anybody know how or if that will effect the turkey's feeding routeen?

However, although it is still standing now, I would assume by May or at least sometime in May the corn will be chopped down to prepare for this year's planting.
If there are open areas near the corn that offer good visibilty, you will likely find the birds there, using it as a strut zone.
