it's high in sugars and salts but,what I've found from trail cameras is racoons enjoy it more than deer. I don't use it anymore, I keep it and make sandwiches instead.

Never hunt over that stuff, it's probably illegal to bait where you are.

I'm gonna bet corn is cheaper and works just as well if that is what you want to do. If you have or know someone that has and apple tree that works ok too.

I wouldn't waste the money on peanut butter to use it as bait or an attractant. If want to spend money there are much better things you buy.
