Being a government agency employee I have helped burn many acres of land. Indeed they are talking about corn put out as a food source not corn in fields eaten by deer on an irregular basis. Put simply burning does many things, it encourages many different plants to grow and increases the biodiversity of an area which is always good (assuming here that it does not result in an invasion of an exotic species. Deer are primarily browsers meaning they eat a bite there a bite here etc., they love those small sprouts and shrubs with tender easy to reach buds and twigs. They also love many of the native grasses if manged correctly. In the end habitat improvement is always the best thing for wildlife.
