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.


Give Rain the Boot
Last spring Missouri's turkey season was an unusually wet one. Two days in particular, it poured heavily all day. I am a bit of a diehard turkey hunter, so I stayed out in the downpour.
 

One Handed Fog-lifter

Misery and Mind Games
Through my experiences in sports and hunting, I’ve learned successful people are those who remain clear-headed, calm and patient under pressure. I’ve also noticed they remember to enjoy each and every moment God gives us, no matter the circumstanc...
 

Slingshot Scent Mortars
For years I’ve tried to weigh the risk of putting out my favorite scents versus the risk of adding my human scent around the area I’m about to hunt.
 

Rake Path of Least Resistance
After reading the February 11, 2014, Tip of the Week, "Rake Away Crunchables," I thought of a similar tactic I've used for many years to help put whitetails in front of me. I use a rake to create a path for the deer in strategic areas around and le...
 

No. 1 Tip for No. 2
Although we don't often see the subject of going to the bathroom in the woods as a topic for hunting magazines, TV shows or websites, it's still an issue every hunter must face from time to time.
 

Choose Kids' Mentors Wisely!
My tip is for hunters to surround themselves with good people. Choose friends who challenge you to be an ethical hunter, a better sportsman, as well as people who give back to hunting so our great sport will be there for future generations.
