I read several threads in here as well as others and I have also tried everything from Buck Bombs, Tinks, My own Pee etc....
Nothing conclusive on my end other than my suspicion that it was fate and good timing that drew them in.
With all the discussions, talk etc - There is one statement I will make that I believe in: Hunt where Deer are and you success gets better.
This said, a friend had suggested to me to try his grandfathers lure. This consists of using a Zip Loc baggie filled with Tuna Fish from Spring Water.
I am no spring chicken and I know where Left Handed Gerry Rigs, Sky Hooks, what Snipe hunting is and Flux Capacitors are located - and this sounded just like the fore mentioned tricks or teases.
However I know this friend well enough to know that after really pushing him he seemed genuine and claims that this has been passed on for 50 years in his family.
Proof is that this friend gets a Buck within the first two days of the season and has done so for the last umpteen seasons claiming this is the mode to go by. Of course this came with swearing I told no one ( so much for that eh? ).
He hunts in a great spot near a creek, in a transition of areas yet claims each deer comes in down wind, and head to this baggie of Tuna.
Has anyone heard of this technique, trick or sham? If its a trick or Sham, I would think others may have heard of this.
If not, it lends me to believe for what its worth, to try it, or at least sacrifice one weekend to seeing what happens. Course I work for a living and my time is precious and the risk I am being shammed is always in the back of my mind...
Suggestions? Comments? Cares?
