I dig some good dirt with a strong odor, mostly under thick leaves, and throw a few scoops in a paper bag. Then throw my hunting clothes right on top the dirt and let it sit for about 3 weeks before season starts. I also found the scent wafers that pin to your clothes that work extremely well. You can find it in Earth to Pine scent. Depends on where I'm headed. I think they also have estrus sent too.
I've never used a feeder or "bait". Not opposed to it because I believe I would use it, I just don't think its legal here. I have sat on a few clover patches. Same thing?
I have always liked the scouting part of hunting. Do the work during summer and a bit in early fall has always panned out well for me. Find their water, food, and bedding and catch them between somewhere.
