Use corn primarily, but started putting out those trophy rocks this season and the deer love them. Even pawing up the ground after they are gone. You might want to give them a try.

Loose feeds are not legal here in Alabama. Closest thing generally practiced down this way as "bait" are food plots and minerals. Legal mineral during hunting season is NaCl only.

I generally use acorns covered in molasses, or plain corn. What they really love is molasses oats which in my book is the top bait but now I only do I use bait during late season meat hunts or doe management.

I had to look up rice bran, never heard of it before. Wikipedia said that it's a by-product of making white rice, is it something that can be had for free or pretty cheap?
