I see no need in mixing anything with corn. They like it just fine the way it is. I really don't want them eating it any faster than they do already.

been feeding deer corn for 20yrs now, never had 1 complain. with the price of corn now, I would hate to think I needed to sweeten it for them.

I do have mineral sites around that do not get hunted, different story, they get the good stuff.

not to mention attracting bears. They can smell the molasses from way off.

A feed mill around here has this corn with cherry syrup mix. I wanna say it was like 8-10 dollars for a 10 gallon bag of it.

If you mix it with either soybean or oats it will add a lot of protein and make them feel "filled up" so they don't eat as much and come back to it more often.
