Default Your Go To Deer Corn Additive/Added Attractant?

Over the years Ive heard other people say they have added XYZ to their corn as a additional Deer attractant.

Weve tried all kinds but have had the best luck with Strawberry Kool-Aid 5 packs per 50lbs and the Hog Wild brand powder.

Whats your tried and true formula?

Curious to see what people have come up with.

I use Buck Ration, and then if I am feeling generous I'll throw out a little Boss Buck brand attractant.

Hmm. Deer on my place already think plain corn is crack. Not sure I want them any more "hooked" than they are, lol. They're standing around waiting for the feeder to go off most times.

Take a $20 bill, cut it into 1/4" squares and mix with your corn. Deer love it!

Ive got to where I use vanilla. Other than that Ill use a powdered feed called p&ps nut grub. Its ground up peanuts and rice bran. It is Absolutely crack for a deer. Its made in Arkansas and I dont believe it is distributed far south.

I use that acorn flavored syrup stuff and pour it on the corn in buckets and put it in some hollowed out logs I made. It just keeps them looking for it even after it is gone giving me an extra opportunity.
The other day I cut up some bruised apples and added it to the corn and they were fighting over those apples.

I use a product called vapple its amazing but thats because it has vanillin in it which is known to dull the sense of smell also whatever flavor you use get the cover scent to go with it

I've always just used regular old corn, but saw some Peanut butter corn the other day, $7.49 a bag, thought I'd give it a try, smelled just like peanut butter but don't know if it made any difference to the deer

God Bless

Like others above I've had success with drawing new deer in with fortified big tine. They don't eat it any better than regular corn but the scent attracts them better.

I only use a couple of cups per 3 gallon size bag of corn when I hand corn, so it lasts a while

On "corn years" like this one, just corn works great. On "acorn years" like last year, you better find some acorns, and you might as well eat that corn.

Truth, except I try not to touch the corn before I pour it into the feeder. LOL. So when I'm successful, my corn smells like corn or the inside of my feeder.
