    heres a fun little trick that might help ya out. take a jar of peanut butter and smear it all over the base of a tree or stump in your shooting lane. the deer love it wont stop licking it until its all gone. pluse they look like mr ed when they get to much at one time!

    you know I've heard this a few times before. Will they actually smell it and come into the tree (like bating) or will it just stop them if they walk past?

    ive had them come in and find it...then start licking untill it was all gone. the only down side to it is if they dont find it while your out there they will find in the middle of the night. then all your peanut butter is gone.

    Might work better for bears. I know they like jelly filled doughnuts.

    I checked the regs. No p&j in there.

    Molasses(sp) work good too.I've never tried it where i hunt....but i have out in back of the house and when they find it...they hang around and just keeping licking it.I'm a firm believer that deer aren't any different than us or bears etc....when it comes to having to a sweet tooth.
