4 cups of corn. 2 cups oatmeal. 2 cups of water or apple juice. And 1 bottle of dark Karo syrup. put in a plastic container and mix. What an aroma. It really attracts deer on a budget.

Are you just then placing this on the ground?? Seems to me this would attract as many ants as deer.

Here's a picture of our salt lick, refreshed this year with Arm and Hammer Washing Soda(not baking soda, it's in the laundry section of the grocery store). It's less than 3 dollars a box, and we put 2 boxes in this year. As a comparison, I put out 2 bags of Rack Up from Evolved Habitats, no comparison, they are hammering the Arm and Hammer.



What ingredients are in the box? I'm curious if there is anything good for or bad for the deer.

Apples and peanut butter work good. I've also heard people have some luck with a smashed pumpkin too, although I've never tried it.

The washing soda is sodium carbonate. It's primary use is water softener for laundry. Here's a link

Use 1 bag water softener salt pellets, one box of the washing soda.

A bag full of apples that you got from an farmers apple tree that does not want them.  The deer love them and it is free.

I looked on the Deer Cocain label and it has sodium carbonate in it, so does the WTI stuff. Maybe thats what the deer smell. @--0--0117
