Thinking about acorns for some reason tonight. An idea crossed my mind but I'm doubting if it would even be legal. Say you were to gather a bunch of acorns and take them home. Before going out hunting you grind some of them up, in a blender perhaps. I dont know how much, a cup lets say. When you get to your stand you scatter the acorn puree, assuming the smell of the acorn mash might interest some deer. I would think all blended up like that the scent would be fairly stong and travel well? Would this be considered baiting though? Probably I guess it is, oh well just wanted to see what others thought.

It's called Acorn Rage . Available at walmart. And yes, it's bait if residue is present within 30 days of hunting season. Why not just scout and find the natural food sources and hunt there ?

Wow thanks for the sarcasm. I'm aware of the availability of acorn rage. Never intended to do this just wodered if it would be legal. Also I scout year round and know my forest pretty darn well so I really dont need the lecture. Your third sentence would have done just fine.

Thanks for responding.

I am sure deer would find it attractive but it would be illegal in PA if you plan to hunt over or around it.

There was no hint of sarcasm in my response nor was there a lecture .
A. Someone already makes a similar product .
B. Yes it's baiting .
C. Why would you want to do that ? I asked a question. Do you hunt in the SRA's?

Even if you kept the mashed up acorns in a perforated container, just to release the scent, and the deer couldn't eat it, it would still be illegal to hunt with.

No I dont hunt SRA's. Usually i'm a mile or two back in the national forest. I was reading a thread in the game camera section about attractants and it got me thinking about this so I posted it. Its never been my plan to draw to in, id rather catch them moving naturally. Again it was just a thought.
