Default Bait

Now that I got my lucky spot all picked out and the stand hung, I've been trying to come up with an attractant to keep the deer within my Bow range. I have a mineral block and some apples back there now. What other kind of bait would work besides the typical Apples and Corn?

I put out some apples last weekend and a bear ate them all, but I spray cmere deer around my trail cameras on the grass and I sure notice a difference when I don't have it.

Cooner,
Baiting is legal for ya'll ,right?

They had a big story on the frontpage of our local paper last weekend to remind folks that it's against the law to even feed deer in your back yard until after the first of the year. Even if you're not hunting, just watching!

They frown deeply on baiting down here in Va. Fortunately, they don't consider foodplots,acorns and such as baiting or hunting over bait.

Baiting deer is Legal in Ohio. In the law book it does say that studies have shown that it makes no difference, but as long as it's legal a few items of interest to the deer can't hurt.
I've heard of Cmere Deer, that's some kind of scent bomb right?

C'mere deer is a powdered food for deer. It also comes in a liquid form.

I've had deer come up and sniff it but not much eat it.

I'm playing with Acorn Rage Fusion right now.

Alot of guys around here use Lucky Buck or just corn

I use the liquid and spray a little pile of oats and when I go back in a week you can't find a bit of oats left and if its not sprayed they don't touch it as good.

let us know how the acorn rage works I might give that a try too.

I've tried acorn rage last year and c'mere deer the year before and both were not eaten by deer. I watched them checked it out but never really ate it. Possum and raccoons ate it. It sat there for several weeks too and I put it out when the woods was done dropping it's other crop. So food was scarce. Deer hardly will look at corn when the acorns are falling. They did hit the mineral rock called a trophy rock and ate the corn from our timed feeders.

I won't buy the stuff again.

Seems there are a few products that are being used. I'll have to take a browse and see what might work best for my set up. Keep the idea's coming!
