Default Spent Grain...Deer Bait??

Anybody ever use their spent grain for deer bait? Just wondering if it would work.

It'll work. Edwort has several pictures of deer eating grain posted on HBT.

Around here the deer are apparently from the snotty section of the forest and will not touch it. I've seen old grain piles over my back fence growing mold.

I've been dumping my grains in the frozen remains of my garden this winter and have been watching the deer go after it when it warms enough for the grain to thaw.

Yeah the deer and other critters in my neighborhood love when I brew. All of the grain from the previous batch is gone when I discard the next batch. Sometimes I feel like they are watching from the woods just waiting for me to be done =)

I usually feed my spent grain to my cousin's beefalo.

My dog seems to eat it before anything else can get too it first. She then pays for it in the next few days and I get to clean up that too.

The mule deer in my backyard won't touch it. Maybe only whitetails like it or something. I live in the mountains outside Salt Lake City and we have plenty of animals that could eat the spent grain if they wanted to. Nothing touches it and it's accumulating into a big pile (frozen pile now). Something ate my lab retriever though...

I dump spent grains behind a stump in the backyard on the edge of the woods. Nothing seems to eat it. Granted it's next to my fire pit but still.... I see deer in the yard from time to time. I wish it worked, I'm an avid hunter and most of the meat I eat is venison.

For the record, hunting deer over bait is ridiculously hit or miss.

I tried to feed it to crazy Irish ex girlfriend's Llama's (you remember her)...they didn't like it. But it might have gone all lacto and then I froze it till I took it over there, so that might have been why.
