On other forums they have tested this stuff a few times. With placed piles of Acorn Rage near high deer traffic areas and monitored with trail cams. Results,..... piles of this "bait" that would sit there until they grew mold and never did attract any whitetails.

Jury says this stuff is worthless!

On the other side of that coin, I just came from a forum where the original poster asked the same question and the feedback made it look like the users are working for the Acorn Rage company. The feedback was that good! Makes me want to go and buy a bag that is now on sale at Gander Mtn. LOL!

I'm curious if this Acorn Rage stuff is considered bait. Not concerned about any "ethical" issue, just curious since here in Virginia baiting is illegal yet I see tons of this stuff for sale at the local sporting goods (Dicks and Gander Mtn) stores.

YES SIR, it is indeed considered BAIT and would be illegal in your state, as it is here in Illinois as well.

Heck..pack up a truck load of this stuff and head to WI.. They love to bait here... you can dump it all over the place ...In fact ,, It is said that WI hunters will do anything to keep their baiting practice.. even if it includes deminishing and demonizing other hunters,,, That is why I don't waste my time hunting WI any longer.... I am the devil..The Demon,,, .LOL....

I haven'yt had very good luck with acorn rage in Oklahoma. The only thing that seems to be working for me is a mixture of corn (not the apple flavored corn) and 20% protein feed. Try taking a look at my friends website www. mikeswildlifefeedersandsupplies.com.

Hey Mike! Oops, I mean fireman9_11,

You must Really be happy with your "friend" Mike and his feeder supply business.

In all but 3 of your 14 posts, you mention his business and leave a link.

In 100% of your posts you only reply about feed, nutrients, protein, etc.

Sounds like you two have a lot in common.

That's great.
