    Salt and Syrup deer attractant?

    well ive been out of school and work for 2 days now due to a bad cold and bow season starts on Saturday. ive been so bored that i started searching the internet for homemade deer attractants and i found a video of a guy mixing salt and syrup. He swears that it works and everyone who commented on it says its great. so i made up a batch and put it infront of my trail cam. has anyone ever tried this? if i get pics today/ tonight ill post them up here tomorrow.

    I have been using Molasses for a long time now, mixed with salt or corn. Sometimes just poured on a stump, the deer have been digging holes and eating everything around my setups looking for more. I also make blocks with oats, peanut butter, corn, molasses and salt. The blocks don't last long at all. You can form your blocks in the square plastic storage bins, place somewhere cool overnight and away from ant's (trust me on the ant's wife was pissed). The blocks are excellent though, the block will work better if you pour about a quart of water over it when you place it in your spot.

    peanut butter seems to be good. I think it is because it has a strong smell. If I put out any bait I always try to put out a little peanut butter by spreading it on a near by tree if I have any.Sometimes I eat some myself.

    I heard of molasass to atttract deer, but I am wondering if corn syrup will work also. I found some in the cupboard and we dont use it for anything and thought it might work.

    I made a syrup/acorn/honey/corn block for the deer, its only 2x2". I havnt put it out yet. Do you think the deer would eat it in the winter?

    I have used a combo of corn syrup, peanut butter and apple jelly...deer go nuts for it - got pics of 2 fawns licking the stuff(at the same time) off thier mothers chin last year - those deer would stay there til it was all gone....one problem was the neighbors dog liked it to, so I stopped putting it out. I have poured it over a salt lick as well but in warm weather the hornets and wasps would be all over it and deer seemed to shy away until nighttime then.
