    I have used this combo for years and it work absolutley great..however, i read or heard a while back that u could soak the corn in the mollaasses/water and the corn would swell like 5 times the size... anyone ever done this or have a mix/formula they use? will it go bad?

    All Corn will swell when soaked in water. I use the molasses corn mixed with oats and barley for black bear. Works great for bear too

    Because molasses has a strong scent which deer can smell pretty far away. Once they associate the smell with the taste, they will never forget it

    i had a deer last year throw his nose in 2 feet of snow to get to it, i have pics and its really neat to see just to add that sry but the stuff works great get it out there even if you can buy the shelled corn and dump it all over it do it and soon espically on those hot days, dump some high on some trees as well and that smell will bring them in big time

    A deer can smell corn from about 20ft maybe. A Deer can smell corn with molasses much better. --The only bad thing is the Snipes, they will really root around in that corn if your not careful.

    Put molasses on anything and a deer will eat it. I just put out a bag of this corn/molasses mix for a change of pace. Two week ago I poured a jug of molasses over sticks and logs and they ate the whole pile including any dirt that got saturated.

    I would not see a single deer with that becasue I'd have every bear from miles away eating that.

    Deer like it bears love it. I have to many bears around me to use anything but a food plot and they get into that too.

    Highly doubt it. --Snipes hit the molasses too hard in my area. Mix up some corn with some orange juice if you really want to draw them in.

    A guy talked me into mixing brown sugar with my corn last year. The problem is the deer ate the corn with or without the brown sugar so until they form a deer focus group like the sharks in the snickers commercial I am going to stick with plain ole corn.
