    Has any one used Buck grub, or stump licker before? I was thinking about trying it. Or if you have used any other type of special bait attractants that have worked well please let me know.

    I have not tried either of those but I did try deer cain which is a white powder you mix with water. I have used it twice with no response what so ever. my favorite is a plain salt block.

    has any body used stump licker or C'mere deer. C'mere deer is a bit to expsensive for my taste. I was thinking about making my own salt lick. I got the instructions on how to do it. It says it will make up to 200lbs. for about 25 dollars.

    I tried the deer cocaine for two years. It was a total waste of money.

    I then switched to planting wheat and corn feeders. They work. You can also buy cattle salt and mineral blocks to set out. Odds are, the deer will use them in the summer but not during season.

    As far as scents, I highly recommend CODE BLUE. It is expense but it will stop a buck in full run chasing a doe. I know that for a fact. He is on my wall.

    I made a tripod feeder this past month. I just bought the timer unit itself and mounted it to a barrel and put legs on it. I think the unit was like $40. I think its the only way to go. Instead of Stump Licker, you might just try pouring molassas (i think thats spelled right) on a stump. Might save you some money.

    if you want to make a saly lick real cheap try buying some rock salt the kind used for ice cream making. dig a hole and bury it.as far as attractants i use scents made from hoosier trapping supply.they work great and they dont cost an arm and leg.
