i bet if you could get ahold of some garbanzo beans they would be gone within a few hours if there is deer within a short distance.

Tried it. They didn't care one bit. Whitetail love them. Blacktail let them go to mush.

With all the Bronx cheers they would be letting out - it wouldn't be a bad tactic to locate them.

Hmmmm, apples are good, Sweet cob is Blacktail crack, I take five gallons of sweet cob, 4 cups of ground soy beans (powder like) raises the protein level to about 18%, and they step over the apples, once they find the nutrition value they are addicted. If bears show up change to dry cob, bears don’t care for it as much, but the addicted dear don’t seem to mind…. And I use apples, some. And any of the apple mineral gallon jugs. I cut 50/50 with water and spray as high as I can in the trees….. just my thoughts

Definetely seems deer closer to lowland residential areas produce much better activity with bait then up in the higher timberlands.
Maturity is when you have the power to destroy someone who did you wrong but instead you breathe, walk away, and let life take care of them.

My deer eat a 5 gallon bucket of apples every night at my blind site. Occasionally I bring two buckets and they eat that all overnight to. Here’s the key I learned after years of doing this, take a machete and cut the apples to small pieces, you’ll be amazed at the difference. I spent hours watching deer try and eat the apples and move on before realizing that if you make it easy, the will smell them from farther and stay there way longer.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.
