I did the same thing. I saw two white plastic jugs in my garage last weekend. The labels have been worn off. I opened one of them, and it smelled as fresh as the first time I ever used the stuff.

I always get my classic TBH threads mixed up but this is the product that was hot for awhile and they guy might have even made a handle here? Then was caught claiming buck candy attracted a massive deer only to turn out it was a canned hunt?

Another member had photos of the deer with earrings?

Thanks for the website, greatly appreciate it. This product works great to keep deer coming over and staying longer in the small lease we hunt in.

Great stuff and a jug lasts a long time. I usually put a little in a pillow case and mix with hand corn then slap myself with the pillow case when I get in the stand.lol Deer lick their lips when eating the hand corn and makes a great cover scent.

Used it in our hog traps since the hogs loved it as well. Had to stop baiting traps with it after catching bucks in them. Would have to check traps at 4am just to open the doors and let them out. So we no longer use it in hog traps. Had four traps set one time and each one had a good buck in it. Crazy.

Yes sir, really good success using this product. Just have difficulty getting this product. Used to buy it when I travel to San Antonio in George west feed store. They gave me a website yesterday and ordered some this morning.

Oh you mean they made a false claim like 99.9999999999% of the rest of the deer attractant business does.. Surely not..

This stuff actually did attract deer but so does corn.

Granular powder that you would mix with corn or pour straight on the ground. Had a very strong apple scent. I mixed mine in a feeder or in my hand corn then sprinkled some around me whenever I hunted as a cover scent

I have 2 local dealers near me, might pick up a jug for this coming year. Mixed with Mummes apple scented corn might work wonders or scare off everything. We shall see.

I used it for several years on the little place I was on. Most of the time I would see more deer than my buddies would. The Candy? Better locations? It was under 200 acres so location is a moot point. Kinda...

Might start giving it a try again and see if bucks come back in. They have kinda disappeared lately.

But I'll leave Jeffy out of the equation. He's a pain in the arse!!
