Deer attractant = 50lb bag of corn. I don't waste money on all the other stuff.
My thoughts as well. If you own the land, you may be better off in the long run, planting things they like. Pear trees do great when established and deer like them better than apples IMO.
I have even taken pears from town tree's and dumped them for the deer, after they try them, it is game on.
Note that much of food stuff we put out for deer can and will draw in other vermin like coons, possums and skunks.
