Hello from Ohio. Homemade, about the only thing I can think of would be a mixture of red trace mineral salt and blend in more liquid molassas. Red mineral salt is used in the farm animal industry and isn't very costly. Pour it over a stump or dig a hole in the ground and mix with dirt. Just know the law regarding baiting on this one. Good luck

Default peanut butter

i use peanut butter and a cooking oil that smells like apples and some salt , plus a real apples blend and mixes them up with everthing some guys up here where mixing corn and chocolate works very well.
