Alternative for corn

What does everybody put in front of their cameras to lure in deer? We used to put corn out, but at $18/bag it's gotten way too expensive, especially when racoons eat a lot of it. We also put out trace mineral salt blocks, but as soon as the corn is gone so are most of the deer. Is there a cheaper alternative? Just trying to find out what bucks are in the area.

Re: Alternative for corn

Wow where in the world are you spending that much on a bag of corn. 50 pounds of shelled corn is 8-10 bucks here depends which farm you go to.

Re: Alternative for corn

The problem is that it doesn't last long. Gone in a few days and doesn't provide much nutritional value.

Re: Alternative for corn

Not real sure what else you would be looking for there are blocks, food plot type items and corn. You can by wheat and soybeans and so on by the bag but they will be way more.

Re: Alternative for corn

I use Buck Jam. Its only $9 dollars a bottle and the deer love it. It usually last awhile too so you get your moneys worth.
