I place my cams on trails and not bait piles but to get great pics I use vanilla extract and place it either on the trail where I want the deer to stop or on a thin twig like branch in front of the camera where I wish them to stop. Works like a charm, and will not spook or make bucks abandon the area. At least in my area thats the case.

HMm ok cool thanks guys.

Any of you know why the deer wouldnt take to the bait?
Could it be because they dont usually eat corn, oats, and barley?

Also, how do you bait with cedar?
