mollasses?

My buddy uses Molasses(with apples) and seen the deer come right in and go to a Molasses covered stump, take a few licks and then hit the apples. This year. in this county, every apple tree produced plenty so the further you are from orchards or apple trees the better. Personaly, I don't want an apple tree within a half mile.
I've noticed for years that you'll see alot of deer traffic around apple trees that havn't produce fruit in many years. Why ?
The only conclusion that I can reach is that the apple tress release an odor, not detected by human, but detectable to deer and they associate the tree odor with a food source.
If their nose is anything close to that of a dog which can detect over 110 different odors at the same time.
The odd dear saunteres threw my yard and always check around an apple tree that produced about a dozen apples in a decade..What else could it be ??

mollasses?

Mollasses works great, Corn syrup, honey, oats, they all work but the best way to get bears there and keep them there is scraps from the butcher mix it up every week give them something new to taste they will keep commin and yes Im sure the deer will check it out if they are around and maybe take a taste but if you have bears the deer wont be around for long.
