We came across this use of sugar type grape Kool-Aid in the large container as an attractant on more than one forum.

Most of the discussions were just doubt and questions but very little information as to the effectiveness. A trip to the Kroger store and just one container of this was around two dollars on sale. We just cleaned out an area by raking back the leaves and sprinkled the whole container full on the ground in this small area. The first day was not too effective and we did however have some curious deer come and smell but it did not appear to be a winner. The second day as displayed in this short slide show shows that it is indeed an effective attractant. This area is only a short distance from where we normally have corn piles and we normally have deer in the area so our task was probably much easier than doing this in the wilder areas. We are going to refresh this area with another container of the same and keep on watching for further results.

I've been using it for a while, I dump a bag of water softener salt on the ground and mix it up with the dirt and then sprinkle a cup or so of the kool aid on top of it. The deer find it within hours and keep coming back for the salt. I'll also mix it with some molasses and fine salt and pour it on a log or stump, it works.

I tried something with koolaid years ago but it was with the packet and powdered sugar. I had mixed results and have not tried it again.

It works good for attracting deer and hogs I have found. I have also had good luck with Jello, good thing about the jello is it is avilabe in more flavors than the kool-aid. However you get more kool-aid for for less money. Both work equally well.

One thing I like about using it over my salt pile is that it goes away after a while so the bear don't keep hanging out, then the salt keeps the deer coming back for more.
