sound attractant

Postby msbadger » Wed Oct 08, 2008 12:37 am

We have well over hundred red oak on the property ...but not all are producing and as many know it's every few years when theres a true bumper crop....but every year at least some have a FEW acorns...any how this year has been pretty good and they've been dropping since early sept...with Ike and a few other high wind storms there are not many left dropping....Our bow opener opens so late Oct 18th that it's hard to utalize the sound of dropping acorns in hopes to bring deer in...most our apples have fallen as well...so in these cases I carry a small pouch filled with differant sized stones....if I haven't seen anything in a while I'll take out that pouch and occationally toss a few....you would be surprised how well that works to bring in critters from squirrel to deer and turkey...........

I used to carry a bag of acorns and use the sound of the acorns dropping through the limbs as a lure. 

Conversely, I am a big proponent of using the natural sound of acorns falling as a determinant as to which stand to pick.  As it gets later into the season, deer will gravitate to the last trees still dropping.

Ya know I have heard of this before.. It's good to get some more postives from it.. Do you ware gloves when you throw them down or no? I was just wondering about scent.. But then again, Im picky about that kinda stuff.
