Will deer and bears eat from the same bait pile?

I live in NC and baiting deer is legal but the black bears get all the corn, will deer and bear eat from the same corn pile?


I’m sure deer and bears have ate from the same bait pile.  However, deer often respond to bears by avoiding them!  Bears are known deer predators.  If bears are actively using a bait pile I’d prefer to hunt deer somewhere else.
