Someone recently told me about using open jars of peanut butter to attract deer. Has anyone here tried this and does it work?
So the deer are there with or without the PB.I have got the big Sam's size buckets of peanut butter and used them for deer bait with good results. I would just take an old spatula and wipe some on trees along deer trails. You have to put the peanut butter where deer live. If you put it in areas where there are no deer it won't work.
I hear ya Trigger. I never said that it was in Pa. that I did that. Good point though.I don't know, if I would I'd be in danger of heavy fines though (PA has very harsh fines for baiting)! I'd assume it would attract deer just fine, probably will attract a Bear or two as well.
This is exactly how I was told to use it and why I asked the original question. Thank you very much for everyone's responses.Oh yeah it works! We would take the lid off of the jar and nail it to a tree (threads out) about stomach high. Leaving the foil on top of the PB jar, cut the bottom out of the jar, then srcew the jar on the lid that was nailed to the tree leaving the open bottom sticking out for the deer to snack on. They will lick that jar clean! Problem is, squirrels and ***** like it a lot too.
