Ok, Yuvonne and Denise this is totally disgusting but I will share as it is 
much cheaper than blood meal.  A friend of mine raises decorative gourds to 
sell at his feed store and greenhouse in the fall.  This past summer he was 
visiting some of the big growers around Chicago and found one of them using 
chicken livers in bags like you describe.  

The local poultry processor gives him the chicken livers for free and he just 
hangs them in bags at intervals around the field, the bags are made from 
panty hose bought at the dollar tree which is one of those .99 stores.  He 
said it worked like a charm so it would be cheap to try.

I am going to give the CD thing a try as my neighbors are close and I don't 
think I can get away with chicken livers hanging around here, we did see five 
deer in our back yard about three weeks ago, they like boxwood too.  N.
