Top of the evening, On one of keith warren's shows he showed a deer farm that put a round ball on a string in their deer pins. My question is they covered the ball with some kind of sticky stuff that the fly cant stay away from! I was wondering if anybody knows what that stuff was? Thanks

It works great on horse flies and yellow flies. I did it last year and covered the ball with flies in a week. The product we used is called "sticky foot". It comes in a jar that looks like PVC cement. Get a $1.00 cheap beach ball and spray paint it black, cover with sticky foot and hang it in a tree near where your deer bed in the shade. Hang it just higher than they can reach. When ball is covered with flies just chunk it and start over.
