Never heard of it. Since you have already purchased it ,,,put it out and find out if it works. Don't know why it wouldn't

Swamp Donkey is what Primo's calls big bucks to sell their products.

flag 155, how much did that stuff cost you? Corn by itself is the best deer bait going, and right now a 40# bag of cob corn is selling for $8.00 down here, which is $2.00 less than last year. I've already used 10 bags since August 1st since my damn food plots all got washed away with over 78 inches of rain!!!!!!!

"Swamp Donkey is what Primo's calls big bucks to sell their products."

Ooh...I get it now. A swamp donkey is what you "put the smackdown" on.

But shouldn't it be , "......what Primo's calls big bucks so they can make big bucks." ??

So basically what you have is cracked corn mixed 50-50 with something that probably bears a striking resemblance to sweet feed? Yep, that will work. You pour in 50 lbs a week and you'll have everything in the neighborhood showing up-- except when you have acorns or row crops to compete with. Then?

Look, whether it ends up being successful or not, you probably will spend gobs of money finding out. There are cheaper ways to get a deer.

I am going to go out on a limb and guess u are new to hunting??

I find many new hunters initially treat hunting like fishing. They wanna find the best bait to set out and wait for a bite.

Hunting is so much more than that. Nature provides all the "donkey pellets" you could ever need. They are called acorns.. or persimmons.. or apples.

My best advice is to not pay attention to the hunting channel or next best product commercials and get in the woods and hunt. Woodsmanship and a true understanding of how the animals behave trumps any food plot or donkey pellet laced mineral mound.

I stopped feeding corn, pellets, etc. Coons ate most of it, attracted bears, etc.

I do use mineral sites as I only get deer at those. I have used mineral blocks and they do OK, but I have most luck with Lucky 7 mineral attractant.

I am also doing food plots, used the Throw and Grow stuff. I got mostly grass and brassicas, but the deer didn't really eat the brassicas. I am not sure they knew what they were. I want to try more clover based stuff next.

Funny your deer don't bother with the brassica. We have a 3 acre food plot and planted one acre of pure brassica and they keep it mowed down like a putting green.
