Using Peanut Butter

In this day and age of battery dills (a screwdriver will do just fine)this one is easy:

1. Get a plastic 28oz. jar of Jiff creamy peanut butter.

2. Unscrew the top from the container.

3. Stir in approx. 3 table spoons of either molasses, honey or maple syrup.

4. Take the jar and a couple of wood screws to your favorite hunting spot.

5. Attatch the jar lid, with the two wood screws, to a tree approx. 4' from the ground.

6. Screw the jar of peanut butter you prepared earlier to the top attatched to the tree.

7. Take out that sharp knife of yours and cut out the bottom of the plastic jar.

By the time you return to your tree stand or hunting area...boy oh boy...the sun has made the peanut butter and molasses...just right!

Deer also eat...

leaves, stems, and buds of woody plants which are usually available all year
for deer.

Plants vary considerably in quality and location availability.
Fruits, nuts and acorns are great.

Grasses are usually not important. Crops like corn, soybeans, small grains, alfalfa, vegetables, and fruit trees are eaten when available.

Daily dry eating is somewhere around 2 to 4 percent of live body weight. For adult bucks, daily eating is mostly in spring is approx. 4 to 6 pounds of dry food per day. Eating is about half that during winter. For does, greatest daily eating occurs in early fall, just prior to the breeding season.
