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

molasses on a stump.baiting is illegal here in NY check your regs first or smokey the bear might pay ya a visit

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

OH heck I'll tell ya,

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.

again check your regs book first.no deer is worth the embarrassment of getting arrested,losing your gear(gun,bow,car,truck etc..)paying fines ......get your boots on get a map scout the area bring back a report and we'll help ya

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
