Ive always used Black Magic powder from Deer Cane. Brings in deer by the dozens, but the moose love it too, maybe a bit too much. Black bears and cougars sometimes stop by for a lick as well.

Apples, but for a higher protein bait/feed the deer out here the deer liked Allstock from Dels the best.

I use a grain blend of corn, oats and barley in the hollow stump.
A couple licks nearby. Not far from the water trough.
Then I scatter apples with a huge McGyvered sling shot that we fire off the deck.
Brings in everything!
Helps that the girlfriend works in the produce department and down the road from the feed store.
Mineral licks, corn and apples seem to be most important.
One shot. One kill!
