I started this thread just

I started this thread just for a little levity, but it's taken a turn that raises a legitimate question.  Apple flavor corn and other scents are applied to corn and other products.  Do these products work even when the source for the flavor does not appear in the locale?  Will apple flavor corn entice Florida deer or do you need to put orange flavor on it?

How about acorn flavored products when there are no oak trees where you are hunting?  Does anyone have any experience?  For me, i'll just stick with the regular corn unless the deer corn is cheaper.  I don't think the deer care, they just want a free meal.

Actually, I think the purpose

Actually, I think the purpose is so that when the corn stalks grow, instead of having ears of sorn on them, they will have apples instead......

I do know this much. A deer

I do know this much. A deer has a sweet tooth. If it is sweet they will eat it pretty much.

I was in Wal Mart and they

I was in Wal Mart and they had deer corn too.  The only I noticed was that it appeared to be regular corn that was extra clean.  I did realize that some corn was dirty, but I guess deer prefer their corn clean. Maybe you have to put it on plates too.

It was priced like regular corn.  Six dollars for a forty pound bag.

With trail cams, it would be

With trail cams, it would be interesting to do a taste test.  Put a little of different products out and see which one they go to first like they do in the dog commericals.  For now, i'll just stick with plain old corn.  I am using it not so much to attract the deer, but instead to get them into position so I can take a nice clean shot.

I am going out this morning and hope to sit all day.  I'll be packing in some more corn so if i don't get a deer at least I'll be feeding them.

""""Now back in 1978 when I

""""Now back in 1978 when I was a double nought spy, in an effort to grow larger suicide attack deer that could survive a collision with a vehicle and live to fight another day, we developed genetically superior corn, that could be substituted as Monster Buck corn. That experiment was a failure. the Bucks did grow into monsters but they became overly aggressive and would just hurl themselves haphazardly in front of ANY moving vehicle with no military purpose and usually would not survive. This is evident to anyone who has driven on country roads at night."

Thank you for this kernel of information.  It is very important that we get the word out.  Perhaps we should work for some government regulation to require properly labeling.  Maybe an education program for the deer so they fully understand the risks too"""

--- "Thank you for this kernel of information" haha No pun intended right. You guys have lost your minds with this whole corn thing. Your posts are getting pretty corny! Sorry, I had to.

"Your posts are getting pretty corny!"  yikes you're just as bad as the rest with that comment.  Bad, very bad.

As a side note, I watched the deer come into the corn last night.  They ate some, but quickly lost interest.  i wonder if it had flavoring if it would have held them longer?  This is okay, because it will last longer.  I might just experiement and put a flavored out to see the effect.

CVC, how's the corn situation

CVC, how's the corn situation working for you? What was the farmers response when you asked him about the yield per acre?
For me, I think I was scammed. The monster buck corn is only attracting immature bucks. What the heck, I belive they gave me the little buck corn instead and were laughing as I drove off.
I need to find some big dow corn so I can harvest a fat doe for the freezer. LOL lol

I got ripped off.  Only

I got ripped off.  Only produced one small forky and one buck with only one antler.  It must be genetically modified corn.  Maybe I need to wait longer to harvest and the deer will be bigger.  I will see this afternoon.
