try this it sounds bad but works very well .. get a bucket with a lid that can be sealed thats a must ok 5 lbs of corn 3 gals of milk older the better and 1 quart of disel fuel mix and cap that sucker leave in the sun for 3 or 4 day take it out to your hunting spot pour it out and you will not beleave the smell and the pigs will come if there are any within 5 miles a little wind and it works great ..
hummm................corn?..........................sugar?................what exactly are you brewing in em ar hills!!!
I wouldn't use plain corn if there are Bears around and you cant kill them....that's about all you'll get coming in and they'll sit and eat till they puke and then eat more and puke.
If no Bears around I like to use Horse feed that has cracked corn, oats and molasses.
If stand hunting add a burlap sack soaked with really burnt motor oil, especially from a diesel engine, tied to a tree about 10" in diameter in a clear shooting lane. it won't "attract" them per se but it will make them stop at that location an rub on it and they'll keep coming back after they have found it.
I've seen them completely up-root the tree wallowing in and around this setup.
i wouldn't drink the liquid that comes out of those barrels to save my life stinks to high heaven. but the hogs and bear love it, we have to quit bating 10 days prior to season but even if we didn't i wouldn't wanna deal with a drunk bear, they're bad enough sober
One of the most important components of deciphering a new hunting area is distinguishing between the summer and winter ranges for the game that you plan to pursue. Without knowing this you cannot make reliable assumptions about where the game will be come opening day. Knowing these areas will allow you to take the current weather (as well as the past couple weeks) and apply that to the landscape and make an educated guess as to where you might find that big buck or bull.
There are a couple ways...
