Peanut Butter: The Pre-Attractant Attractant
By Jeff Maynard

Peanut Butter: The Pre-Attractant Attractant

If you use corn as an attractant, either for baiting or drawing deer to trail cameras, sometimes it takes a while for deer to find it.

When setting up a feeder in a new area, I pick a few trees near my feeder to rub down with my favorite super attractant: peanut butter.

In theory, the aroma of peanut butter is stronger than corn, and will travel quickly across a larger area.

I use a stick to spread peanut butter on the legs and PVC pipe of my feeder, as well as the trunks and low-hanging branches of the trees I have chosen.

Once deer find your feeder, they'll continue to return for the cache of corn.

Many times, I've watched deer stand on their hind legs to reach peanut butter smeared on overhanging branches. They love it!

Later in the season, if baiting is legal in your area, spread peanut butter in the area again to sweeten it up and give the deer something different to keep them interested.
