Post the weirdest things that seem to work for deer hunting.

The one I have heard is to put a white 5 gallon pail near your spot. Deer will spot it and come to investigate.

What else??

A old time once told me that he would start alittle fire with some sticks and dump some leaves on it to make it smoke alittle and the deer would come right up to it.I never tried it but he shot a lot of deer in the club I was in.
Hunting and fishing is not a sport to me its a way of life:rock:

Deer often follow people and predators from a distance to keep an eye on them. We once did a sot of backwards drive. I was doing a small one-man push to my father and he laughed as I walked up to his stand and he tells me, “keep walking the deer are back there following you”. Sure enough, I kept walking and the deer followed me right past his tree and he got a shot.

Interesting ideas.
One property I use to hunt, I would clean small walking paths so I could get to the stand very quiet.
Removing all leaves down to bare ground...
Soon found deer following these paths right to my stand.
Later used this tactic to draw them into shooting lanes just outside of thick brush.
Bingo...
Something along the bucket idea worked for a friend of mine many times over. He used a small plastic basin filled with water, they would come in for a fresh drink.

Once while walking a trail I saw a deer off to the side just watching me pass. I knew if I stopped he would be gone so I kept walking while turning walking backwards I took aim and stopped just long enough to pull the trigger.

On another occasion I jumped a doe from her bed and it took off barking, but not full flight, sort of life it wanted me to follow her. So decked out in orange in the almost open I slipped over to a 3" sapling and just leaned on it. About 5-10 min later a button arose and started sneaking in the opposite direction It stared right at me for a while then just kept slinkering , till I pulled the trigger. You hunt long enough and you'll come across all kinds of scenario's. I have read about that fire trick in Outdoor life or Field and Stream over 35 years ago.

ok here you go, take some old stinky socks or such and hang them so the deer will get the scent and avoid them , circling around to your waiting arms.

i never tried it but you can use alam clocks to drive deer out of certain spots if you know when they bed there and when they leave to get in and set them up.

Maple syrup, thought it would bring the bears in, and a couple of does too.

When hunting the ground on a field edge (or a lawn edge) use a white sock to "flash" deer from a distance. Be careful not to overdo it. The trick is to use the sock when they are not looking directly toward you. They have great peripheral vision as we know. A quick flash is often times enough to get them coming in your direction.

I do this also. I take a rake out and clear a couple paths about a 100 yds out from my stand in different directions.
