This one is for everybody, but i would like to hear from some of the old school guys, what is the weirdest or craziest bait or deer attractant you have ever used?
my horses were great bait last year. Deer just kept coming into my pasture. There's a mini game area a bit back from my property and the deer seem to think my pasture is sanctuary because the horses are all grazing relaxed and all. Little do they know the horses don't care about the sound of gunshot, and the horses also let me know when they are coming into shooting range.
And tonight, I kicked a deer off my stock tank.....that was interesting.
I have seen deer attracted to anise oil, bears like it too.
One time in up in Iron County, we were hunting some CFA land, 4 of us. We wanted to meet back at the truck for lunch. There was 10" of snow on the ground and we had a fire going off to the side of the truck. Ohio State vs. Michigan on the radio, italion sausages propped up around the fire. Guns all leaning on various tree's and then we saw him. Wow what a buck. I have three witness's that open fire and sausages will draw in big bucks.:lol:
:yeahthat: It doesn't just attract bucks, it applys to any game that you are targeting at the time. Stepping out of the blind to take a leak is another sure fire way to bring'em in. Only works if you leave the gun in the blind though.No, it's the guns leaning against the trees that does it:lol:
Murphy lives in the woods. Buddy of mine saw the biggest buck he has ever seen through the crack of the outhouse door a few years back:lol: I have had experiences that to this day will wake me up in a cold sweat and beating my head against the wall.:yeahthat: It doesn't just attract bucks, it applys to any game that you are targeting at the time.

Back in 1995 my son dropped a kit kat wraper on the ground when he was at my blind. That evening I had a 4 pt come in and he licked that wrapper clean. I watched him for probably 5 minutes messing with that wrapper.Had a melted Kit Kat in my coat and took it out of the wrapper and left it on the ground where I parked. When I came back out the Kit Kat was gone and nothing but deer tracks in the loose dirt.
