    ok soo look...me and my neighbor were experimenting last week...with boiling stuff. we boiled pine tree limbs...we sat 40 yards from each otehr...we both sprayed ourselves with it...and there deer come running out of no where and start sniffing..heads all high and that good stuff. im experimenting with apples right now. im going to try them tomrrow. but if you have pine trees around..consider boiling them. they do wonders...just take and put them in a spray bottle.

    take an old sock, wash it good in scent away soap, boil it in a pot of apple cider right before you head out in the woods, seal it in a ziplock bag, hang it from a near by tree limb......the deer love it....

    Hey !
    Nice idea...
    You guys out East are smarter than I thought... :laugh:

    Seriously, Illinois has cracked down on baiting and I don't know if that's considered baiting. You have to read between the lines I guess. I don't have the 2007-2008 hunting regulation book yet since I'll be buying my tags tomorrow... I'll have to check that out but it sounds like an excellent idea.

    PA has lessened their baiting rules... 4 counties allow it now due to population influx

    I wish they would do that here, at least by county instead of state-wide restrictions. Dead deer on roads all over this area now... It's getting rediculous.

    Hey Dred, you ever sleep or are you working 3rd shift ? :lol:

    I used to use the pine tree bit years before. Still will. I also have an old seabag that I throw my extra hunting garb in,and I take an old pillowslip that I chop up small pine branches and put in it and put that in with the clothes in the seabag. Made me smell like a Christmas tree. Got that from an "old timer" that would even line his pickup truck bed with pine branches and threw his gear on top of that.
