Default Scented corn or regular corn

Have you gents noticed whether apple 🍎 scented corn attracts game better than regular corn? Is the extra $1.25 per bag worth it to you? Thanks in advance.

Iíve used both and never noticed a difference for deer. But the cows and horses did find it faster with the apple scented.

Regular. For where you’re at, I’d try to add in another type of feed for variety/more attraction. Like roasted soybeans or alfalfa.

We used the apple & regular. 100% of the time they walked past the regular to eat the apple corn. Apple is not a gimmick on our place, as it does bring them in.

I bought several bags of the persimmon flavored Bait Corn a couple of years ago and mixed it with my usual Golden Nuggets. I had a bunch more deer on camera at the feeder than usual. I wish I could find the persimmon again locally. All I've been able to find is apple flavored.

I think it depends on where you are hunting - South Texas?? Corn is corn period IMO

Hill Country/east texas?? Apple or scented may help
