Copied from the Missouri Department of conservation site.

Deer and turkeys may not be taken with the use of dogs, bait, electronic calls, electronically activated calls or live decoys. Scents and minerals, including salt, are not considered bait, however, mineral blocks with food additives are prohibited. An area is considered baited for 10 days even after complete removal of the bait. It is illegal to place bait in a way that causes others to be in violation of the baiting rule.

Here is the official, written rule on baiting from the Wildlife Code, from the Secretary of State's Website -
(G) With the aid of bait (grain or other feed
placed or scattered so as to constitute an
attraction or enticement to deer). Scents and
minerals, including salt, are not regarded as
bait, however, mineral blocks with food additives
are prohibited. An area is considered
baited for ten (10) days following complete
removal of bait. Hunters can be in violation
even if they did not know an area was baited.
It is illegal to place bait in a way that causes
others to be in violation of the baiting rule.

And from that, I would gather that items such as C'Mere Deer Acorn Rage probably don't qualify as a "mineral." The operative phrase is "... that constitutes an attraction or enticement to deer." Now, Acorn Rage is not a mineral supplement, if it is being placed in a manner to "attract" deer within range, closer to stand, etc.

That is just my interpretation, but the only way to really find out is from a visit from Mr. Conservation Agent.

In PA we have acorns in certain sections of the state and not others. Here is an article on the Southeast section, but where I hunt in the Northwest, we are having trouble finding acorns. Alot of apples though.
