it is the scent that brings them in more than regular bran. i have used the persimmion and the apple. Both work good now-oct... not as good later in season, same with persimmion salt blocks.. i guess its the flavors they are used to that time of yr, no clue

A buddy I hunt with came into a bunch of unmilled rice a couple years ago. I figured deer might eat it since it still had the husk on and I think that's where rice bran comes from. Boy was I wrong. They wouldn't touch the stuff. So we wound up with somewhere around 2000# of rice to feed the birds.
Started using this at the camp in St Francisville about 2 years ago. Deer love it and the hogs dont seem to get in it as bad as with the regular rice bran. This is based on what shows up on the camera only so it could be more to do with patterns on the lease than the diffrent rice bran so take it for what it is worth.
have never used persimmon but have used regular, some type of maple flavor and even peanut butter. cant say 1 works any better than other. As other poster stated it is like crack to a junkie. PB flavor smells good enough you consider putting in your own mouth
