The difference between food and bait is whether or not you shoot the deer while he/she is eating it. In SC you can pour corn on the ground to feed your deer, but you can't hunt there. You can put a stand up between a bedding area and the food then shoot them as they go towards it, buthunting the corn pile is a no-no.If your trophy buck has corn in his mouth while you are transporting him, you may have some explaining to do.

Has anyone tried that gel attractant? It supposedly smells like apples or persimmon, but the manufacturer claims it isn't considered bait because it has no nutritional value.
I triedthe gellast year. Poured some on a rotten log in the middle of a heavy trail. It took a while but I did see a doe and a yearling eating on it one day. It all got eaten but it didn't draw them in like a magnet. I might try the peanut butter jar on the tree this year. The gel does work for wild pigs though. I poured about a pint in a five gallon bucket, mixed it with a gallon of water,poured it overcorn and drew hogs in for miles!

Where in SC are you its legal to hunt over corn in the lowcountry. People here do it all the time.
I use it when I get desperate and want to take a doe or 2 for some meat late in the season..
Most of the time I set up in the funnels where the travel and wait..
I hunt in Chester County. I just looked up theSCDNR rules andregulations. "In Game Zones 1 and 2 it is unlawful to pursue deer with dogs, and it is unlawful to bait for deer (50-11-310)." It looks like you can hunt over bait in the low country. I'm hunting in Game Zone 2.
I hunt over in zone 6..and we hunt over corn all the time.infact thats our primary bait a bag of corn. I think i need to start my own crop of corn though its getting expensive for corn now a days

I've got a buddy with some land near Bamberg, SC. I might have to take a bag of corn down there when it cools off a bit.

Thumbs up Home made deer bait works like magic

Today i went to start baiting for rifle season. I took apples from apple trees and put them in a bucket and used a 2x4 to mash them up. I went to my hunting spot putting the apples it various spots. At the last spot after I just emptied the rest of the bucket of apples the smell was so strong that by the time i looked up there was a little buck running right at me. Don't get me wrong this was in the middle of the woods back where deer don't associate with humans. The little guy came up within 10 yards. I slowly backed off and he ran right to the apples and ate them as I walked away.

How has that worked out for ya? Brought bunch in?

I wouldn't expect an answer. Did you bother looking at the date of this thread? It has been dead for more than 8 years except for one post in 2011.

Same old same old BS with a newbie going into the archives and resurrecting an ancient dead thread and then he makes 3 posts in a row, LOL!

Talking

At least this time no one has posted how they do it, also no one posted it has good information in it too.


So Moderator should lock the thread and delete all the new bees post since they didn't add information.
