I love Mumme's apple scented corn, but not because of the smell. I don't think the scent makes any difference at all, but it's the cleanest corn I've found and they do extensive afflatoxin testing.

I don't think it helps.....but what could it hurt? However, to be honest, I have had chances to buy it and have always passed for just good old plain corn.

The places I have hunted south.....the deer would walk past the regular corn to eat the Mumme's corn. Im a big believer in it for hand corning or when setting up a new feeder. Of course nothing beats Indian corn.

I have not had any luck with the walmart apple scented corn. My feeders would go almost untouched by dseer when I had that out. never filled the feeders with it though, they were used to corn/soy mix, so the difference in smell might have freaked out the deer. I did hunt in a very timid deer area, anything would set them off it seemed, so I stopped doing the apple scented corn.

I love the smell of mumme's. I haven't noticed a difference either way so I just go with the cheaper.

I notice no difference between scented/non scented as far as preference for the deer. Like others have said the mummies apple corn has always been very clean and it comes in good sacks. If its same price ill grab it. A lot of times its cheaper at HEB than regular corn at a feed store.

Where I hunt The deer wouldn't touch it, they don't know what apples are, there's none growing there. I learned the lesson the hard way in 2003 bought a whole pallet at discount of apple scented corn got harassed by my buddies on the lease because the deer wouldn't touch it. Hogs, coons and tree rats loved it! Unless you've got apple orchards close by DON'T do it!!!!!

I bought the HEB apple flavored corn but I added a couple of packets of "Come here deer" powder with the corn. I filled up a feeder with it and had another feeder 100 yards away with plain Lyssy & Eckel corn. The deer were eating the apple corn with powder like crazy and hardly touching the "plain" corn. This was just south of San Antonio. Who knows???

Seemed to make no difference to my coons, hogs, wood rats...oh, and deer too. frown So why pay the extra $1.
