    Is this new, or am I just behind on the times:head:. I've had several people tell me and I've been seeing it on here, people using pure vanilla extract on feed and spraying it on stuff to attract deer. Does it really work? My wife works with a guy who is a pretty good deer hunter. He told her yesterday he killed a big 10pt over the weekend after he sprayed some vanilla extract on a tree about 20 yards from his stand. This buck come up and was licking on the tree. Now I've herd of putting out peanut butter and black liquorish, but not vanilla. I figured I'd just have a bunch of ants. Anyone?

    I put some out and have not got a single picture since that day. I was getting 40-50 pictures a day, and now am not even getting coons or anything!!! Maybe it's just coincidence, but I'll never use it again!!

  11. I swear by it. We had a guy that never saw anything. He wouldnt use the Vanilla. One of my buddies snuck behind him and poured a whole bottle down his back. He killed his first deer that day. I use it all the time. I put it in a spray bottle. Its cheap and deer love it.
