View Full Version : Yo. Deer. Come on over here.

My best stand is on a 10 acre property right beside a corn field. The deer go in the corn, but I don't have permission to hunt there. Even if I did, it would be hard to get in range. Any ideas? The corn is usually cross-wind, so it's hard to get scent in there.

Ask grtwythunter about his buck this year and how he used a grunt call to bring him right in. ###Impressive story and it worked great for him. ###He took a dandy.

Actually it was a doe bleat. I saw him at first light about 200 yds out. Let out a few bleats and he came in like he was on a string. He made the mistake of stopping broadside at about 125 yds. BOOM!! I have a friend that uses the same call and has brought bucks in from 400+ yds. ### Good luck. ### ### Scott

was that a doe estrus bleat that you used? ###Got one of those this year and used it some, but not a lot.....no success to report.

jayber-it is a estrus bleat. Mine is tuneable. It took quite a bit of tweaking and playing before I got any results but it is worth it. You're hunting whitetails aren't you? I'm chasing mulie/blacktail crosses. ### ### Scott

Try putting out the scent bombs by your stand and sneak out into the middle of the cornfield about 2 hours before sun-up and take a big dump there. They will circle all around the field until the figure out what they want to do. You might be surprised. Just check which way they are coming from and use the wind right so you don't totally scare them off.

nobuck, you're scarin' me! ###i'll use that as my last ditch strategy. ###should i start a new thread to get ideas on what it would take to get my system to want to take a dump at 4:30 in the morning? ###but you make a good point, the idea of using 'negative' smells to move deer in the right direction. merry christmas! ### Oak.

You gotta do what you gotta do. When I use to rifle hunt in Utah, we would get above ravines and throw rocks down into them to scare them out. I have seen some nice ones taken that way also. I have spent a lot of time hunting alone and you have to think of everything. Negative smells can work at times. Contrary to popular belief, deer will take the path of least resistance more times than not. So if you can find a way to deter them from their normal routes, you can sometimes steer them in the right direction towards your stand. Coffee is the best way to get your system ready for the drop.

Hey nobuckev... ###I kinda took your advice. ###Spent an hour on the treadmill with slightly wet socks (they smelled BAD). ###Put them in an air-tight baggie and hung them on the far side of the corn field about an hour before light. By mid-morning 4 does came across the field and right by my position. Closest one was 15 yards. Too bad I don't have a doe tag. Anyway... besides about 2 hours tomorrow afternoon, my season is done and it's been great tradin' stories with the guys at jhp!

OakridgeBowman, how did it work out??
01-06-2002, 06:12 AM
The party is over for me! ###But I can't complain... we got a few in the freezer during the rifle hunt and I came close a few times with the bow. Absolutely nothing beats getting out in the bush and (like always!) next year will be the year of the monster buck! ###How about you, kellyg?

Hey that 45 minute nap I took in my ground blind last night was the most peaceful sleep I have had in a while. I got to get out of this city and move to a cabin somewhere. Some day. Just like my big wallhanger, Some day.
