I tried oranges in a hog trap one time. Nothing touched them. I don’t think the deer around here would have ever been exposed to citrus fruit. If I was going to feed it, I’d start in the early summer and let them get used to it. You dump it today and hunt tomorrow, you might spook everything in the area.

Curious on this. They handed out some kind of orange scent stuff to put in deer feeder at the Texas Hunters Extravaganza. Anyone tried it?

One of the inlaws picked some up one time a couple years ago. It got ate up down in South Texas, but when I brought a bag up here to hill country it laid on the ground for a few days before the squirrels finally finished it up.

I had been using it for a couple years and the deer really like it. I recently quit using it due to it being some of the dirtiest corn I have ever seen. Many of my friends did the same. Hope they clean it up. I would go back to it

I let my feedstore talk me into buying persimmon flavored corn. It was all the same price so figured what the heck. Going to try it in the road feeder and see how they like it.

Honestly I cannot imagine why a wild deer, in Texas, would touch that stuff.. Its about as unnatural as it could possibly get...

Deer are funny creatures. Our acorn crop was non-existent this year so I picked up a bag full of them at a property I worked on. Mixed them with some corn and dumped it around my tree stands. The does ate the corn and left the acorns alone. The bucks came by and scarfed up the acorns like candy. I thought that was interesting.

Yes first used Orange Corn on a South Texas Youth Draw Hunt. Worked fantastic. It has been available for several years in South Texas.

This Fall local hardware started carrying so several of us are using with good success. Previously used Buck Candy in my corn but it got too expensive.

I had to stop using it the pigs seemed to love the stuff
. My brother was working with a guy who got the stuff for 4 something a bag two years ago well we never had may pigs on our 30 acre place I put it in the feeders and about 3 days later I had about 30 pigs on the cameras. Figured it was just a bad luck thing the feeder ran out of the orange stuff and ended up just grabbing some regular cheap corn and the pigs came two nights in a row then stopped coming to that feeder and kept going to the one that still had the orange in it.
