apple cider vinegar

Anybody ever heard of or used apple cider vinegar as cover scent or deer attractant? I ran into an old timer at Bass Pro a week ago and he swore up and down on it. He said it is all he ever used. I personally only use red fox urine on my boots and spray earth scent on me for cover. I also leave my hunting clothes in air-tight bags with some earth scent wafers in there all year long. Let me know if you have ever heard of that. The guy told me he has watched the deer lick the branches he has walked by on the way to getting to his stand.

old-timer knowledge

Nope, I've never heard of that, but I do put stock in what old-timers tell me sometime. One said all you'll ever need to kill a deer is a 5-gallon bucket, which makes you learn how to sit still. Or how about when old-timers can say that this flooding isn't as bad as what they saw 30 years ago - that's good stuff. Anybody else want to share any more old-timer knowledge?

Apple Juice

My sister that lives in Virgina uses apple juice as cover scent. She learned it from the okld timers. I myself use deer daner made by Fitgerald. You smell like a deer and deer tend to walk the same trail as the last deer. I once had a pack of hunting dogs track right to me....lol! Boy were they surprised!

Grape Kool-Aide

I've heard of a guy that every time he goes to his stand to fill feeders or trim branches, whatever, he sprinkles powdered grape kool-aide on the ground. The deer get used to the grape kool-aide meaning full feeders, so when he hunts and sprinkles kool-aide....they think it's feeding time!

I always think about trying this, but never have. Goes back to the old timer theory.
