For use as an attractant and for those who can’t keep a food site up year round, you can use smaller portions. Grow the Bone is best used in 2-3 lb portions (the size of a coffee can). We recommend placing this heaping mound of attractant out a couple days prior to your hunt to ensure traffic to your stand. However, this is not necessary. Even on your first application deer will not be alarmed by the product. If they smell it, they will eat it. We have seen the ratio of 6lbs of GTB to 300lbs of corn will work great to attract deer to your property. We have seen that trail cam activity will double and even triple over GTB feed locations. There is no wrong time of year to use the product. Determine your short and long term management/hunting goals and allow Grow the Bone to help you realize your dreams.
