Default What about Peanut Butter?

The question about growing peanuts got me to thinking. I use peanut butter some during hunting season to attract deer. What about using it in the spring and summer as a protein source. I can't get down to my hunting camp in spring and summer too often and the dry weather around here is not too condusive to growing much of anything that provides protein. I can keep a pretty good supply of cheap peanut butter available for them though.

Not doubt they will eat it. Just take the top off the jar, tack it to a tree, screw the jar back on and cut the bottom off the plastic jar. The problem I had was that ants liked peanut butter also and would cover the peanut butter before the deer found it.

I know they will eat it, I do what you're talking about during hunting season, I am just wondering if it will aid in antler development. Would it be a good protein source like soybeans and other legumes? It would be a lot cheaper on my part than hauling my tractor, the diesel, the cost of seed and fertilizer(at least twice). Plus the fact that it may get enough water and it may not. You never know around here in the spring and definitely in the summer. Fall and winter is another story, a lot of the time my food plots are under water.

Back to the question, does anyone think that peanut butter will aid in antler development?

The only problem is that you're going to cause a lot of interdeer contact when they all use the feeder. This puts your deer population at greater risk for disease.
