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.

Inexpensive Snow Suit
I live in Washington state where there's a 100 percent chance it will snow during the late season. My tip should help hunters in other states when it snows, even those who hunt in the Deep South because snowstorms sometimes stray into Alabama, Texas ...
 

Field Test Before D-Day
Whether you are a bowhunter or gunhunter, make sure to wear the same clothes and use the same gear you will be hunting with. This will prevent problems before the moment of truth arrives.
 

Avoid the Half Moon Club
Have you ever noticed how many hunters — even famous ones — have a little scar on one eyebrow or across the bridge of the nose? That's the telltale sign they've been cut by a riflescope.
 

Natural Wind Detector
My favorite wind detection device is simple, readily available and occurs naturally.
 

The Eyes Have It
With the average age of hunters being in the mid-40s, many of us are at the point in our lives when it pays to be aware of potential medical complications that can begin to creep in during midlife.
 

Curiosity Killed the Buck
In my home state of Missouri, it is currently illegal to use bait for hunting deer or wild turkey. But I’ve figured out another way to attract them that’s perfectly legal, and it will work anywhere.
 

The Cure for 'Rut Hands'
When I think back to the time I shot and field dressed my first buck — nearly 35 years ago — I can still remember the frustrations of trying to get the stink off my hands.
 

2-D Man Decoys
As an avid bowhunter, I'll use every trick in the book, no matter how crazy, to fool a deer's senses. This particular tip will help deceive their eyes.
