My uncle and I like to plant lots of alfalfa and soybeans, so we can see the deer better. We also take a 5 gallon bucket of corn and dump it about 30 - 40 yards from are stand. We have also used a thing called dynamite and it goes into the ground after it rains, and the big bucks will go and scrape in the ground and sometimes they will even dig 3 or 4 feet deep. Good luck and get a big one!
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
