    What is everyones favorite DIY homemade deer attractant?

    Seems like most people use Jello, Kool-Aid, or Pudding powder with salt and sugar?

    Most popular flavors of Jello and Kool-Aid seem to be Grape & Cherry.

    Most popular flavor of Pudding seem to be Butterscotch and Vanilla.

    Then people use all different kinds of Salt (Table, Stock, Mineral) and Sugar (Granulated, Powder, Brown).

    What is your favorite mix and how much of each product do you use in your mix?

    How do you use your mix? Pour straight on ground or stump, over a mineral or feed block, over/mixed in with loose feed (corn, rice bran, alfalfa), mix with molasses?

    I'm looking for an attractant, not a food source. Something that would not cost much, last a couple to few months possibly with a little refresher, and pull deer in during the spring and summer for tcams. Soybeans, corn, and alfalfa do work great though.

    Some people were bringing apple juice to a boil then adding these ingredients to dissolve them. Then pouring on ground or stumps. Just not sure what the amounts of each.

    I liked the Trophy Rock for a long term bait. I just saw some at Dunhams for $10. Mine lasted from April to fall. Then they came to eat the "contaminated" ground. But since WI banned baiting/feeding I don't use them. Now I do more mock scrapes and rubs.

    I have used this and got very good results. I spray it on leafy green vegetation (natural browse plants in the area)

    I mix 4 oz vanilla, 4 oz water, and 1 oz almond oil together in a spray bottle.

    Wish I could use that stuff here. Hogs would tear that combo up before deer find it.
