For feral hogs, just use left over food and dump it near a deer feader that's been working for a while. The raccoons may get it first, but if the area is hot with hogs, you'll be money. Blacktailer also had a great idea.
I usually do the spot and stalk approach... drive around or hike around until I find them. Of course, I like this style for pretty much everyhting I hunt. It's extremely more difficult than blind hunting in my area, but it sure makes a good kill worth it for me.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
