Store bought right of the bag or home made concoction let's here it....

Personally I've enjoyed roasted corn and soybeans with a few cut up apples thrown around.

I've tried everything.

Corn, they ain't touching it, to much natural food.

Deer cane, had some stragglers come by to check it out.

Salt lick, nothing.

Peanut butter and molasses, nothing

Rice bran, nothing.

Sugar beet crush, notihing

Persimmon crush, nothing.

If corn isn't working your best bet is to not hunt corn. Everyone is looking for the easy road but there is no magic. Stop doing whats not working and try something new. Hunt trails to and from bedding, water, other food sources. Hunt scrape or rub lines. Sitting there hoping they finally decide to come to an attractant is a sure way to not find success.

Corn for sure. I also have a couple of protein feeders next to my corn feeders. Just about every deer that comes to my corn feeder always jumps in the pen to eat some protein too. The free choice protein gives my deer something to snack on while they are waiting for the corn feeder to go off as well. I feed corn and protein year around. On a side note, my deer took quite a while to start eating the protein but once they got started I can't keep the feeders full.

Yep. Watching an unproductive feeder is a drag. Get out and rattle. Do something different.
