F those big&J blocks. By buddy said " you gotta get those at tractor supply, the deer go nuts over them"...
So what the hell, thought I would put one by a cam and see what happens... I was very skeptical in that it smelled like molasses, so got the VERY predictable results of course..... Note the block is whole in first pic, next pic it is cut in half, and from a very small bear none the less. Wish I had it on video to see how he did it, those things are solid as a rock... Oh - btw, lots of deer around it prior, but none touched it. Last pic is a small 8pt that game into sniff 4 hours AFTER the bear, and he got the heck out of there... I will never be a masterbaiter with so many bears around :) Tried sugar beets, bears didn't like them but neither did the deer.

Sure wish I had an acorn crop...

Anyway - these pictures are comical...

It looks like he was doing sorta a pile-driver move on that block with his elbow, doesn't it?

Use nothing with molassis if you have bear in the area . Like already said by NB66 corn spread it out . Pretty cool pics though and you had a Buck come in too .

I have a spot I put feed blocks out in. The ultralyx blocks last about 2 weeks one of them big j blocks lasts about 3 to 4 days. So there is difference. Seems with feed blocks the deer need to get used to them first before they really start hitting them. I'm not in bear country either.

They suck. I heard all the hype. I figured I would try one. I had a better chance of throwing the $20 on the ground and the deer eating that. The deer hardly touch it. The raccoons been tearing it up for the last month

i,m not in bear country either..my b and j block is gone in 2 days..they distroy it. as far as sugar beets go..i was skeptical at first but once it gets cold and they eat them..they love them. at my spot deer barelly toched the beets last year till they got cold and turned to pure sugar ..this year they know what they are and pound them.

The best bocks I have found are the ones made by Purina. They are 2 for $20 at a store near me. They have a lot of corn in them. But, I'm not in bear country. They smell good enough that I should eat them so I'm fairly sure the bears would like them.

By cousin swears by it. So I decided to test his and mine 5 ft apart. I put tractor supply wild berry block and b&j block. When the deer came they went to the tractor supply block. I shot a my earn a buck over that block. Just put another out so hopefully deer come and the bears don't. Both were out since labor day and they were down to nothing but a handful. Never smashed by the bears there either.

I dumped a bad of big&j out and the deer didnt touch it..
i have used, deer cocane, liquid apple and stuff you just pore on ground and 1/3 of the time it attacks deer... i guess its the area you use it at because i had friends that it worked for but didnt work for me [confused][confused][confused]
