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

a new jar of peanut butter. cut a half moon out of the bottom on a new plastic jar and nail to a tree. ( no need to remove the lid or the seal from the top) works well and if you go to a place like save-o-lot you can stock up on enough to cover your intire area realy cheap. works well and coons will be there too. put a trail cam on one I think you'll be suprised at all the criters you get pics of. and some times the other critters is what helps keep nervus deer calm.

Hello from ohio first check your laws
you can try
mixing peanut butter, brown sugar and molasses to a consistency that is thin enough to drip in blobs off a spoon, but thick enough that it is not able to be poured. If weather permits, dig a shallow hole and pour the mixture into it to serve the deer.

I havent had good luck with baits and bucks. Does are a different story. I read a few years back in a magazine where an ole boy got creative and at Christmas time, bought some plastic apples that were made to use as decorations and tied them in a tree, out of the deers reach. Then he would toss apples around the tree each time he left his stand. Supposedly the deer would consume the apples and come back by to see if the stubborn ones in the tree has dropped yet. I havent tried this but always wanted too. I know folks with gardens say the deer get into their peas and beans way before corn so a trip to the farmers market for a bushel basket might help. Again IMO mature bucks are cautious of un natural baits during daylight hours.
