I was reading on a few other forums the other day about different attractants people have used. A couple that caught my eye were corn chips and grape kool-aid mix. The corn chips I can understand, but the grape kool-aid kind of threw me. They said you mix the powder with corn and place a pile on the ground. What I am wondering is if any of you have heard of this or tried it, and any other odd attractants you have heard of people using.

People seem to think if a deer is eating it, it's an amazing attractant. Regular corn would probably work just as well. There is a reason corn is the most popular attractant. It works.

I was fly fishing the Conejos River in Colorado. I left my backpack with a open bag of Fritos on the bank. At some point I turned around and a 6 point mulie was finishing off my Fritos. Then he followed me back to camp that evening and pestered me into giving him another bag!

I add a quart grape kool-aid in my deer feeder on occasion.

The house deer will eat anything from Taco shells, bread, cake. The list is long.

We had an old man that would hang an old transistor radio in a tree tuned to static at a medium volume. I guess the deer were curious and would come up to see what it was.

First thing, in the area you hunt what is typical food source, second don't use apple flavored corn if no apples in area - different smell third don't over think the process .

I don't know that I agree with only using Apple flavored corn if there are apples nearby. I feed corn, and there aren't cornfields near by.

The deer will come in to the vanilla, I cut with water, put in a spray bottle and spray the bushes.
There are no vanilla vines in the desert but the deer like the smell.
