    So i just got into deer hunting and this year is going to be my first season. I'm hitting the stand this Thanksgiving through this Sunday almost all day everyday. I'm hunting in North Carolina on a field that clover used to be planted in. My question is what is the best approach to get big bucks in for a good shot? I was thinking about using doe urine and just blasting out periodic doe bleats to try to get a buck to still chase since we are right near the rut. Would this be a good idea? Any advise would be helpful.

    You might also try a grunt call and rattle some antlers. Stay concealed and still and you might see something. Good luck, be safe.

      The best advice about hunting deer seems almost silly, but here it is:

      Always be where the deer are.

      All the calling and scents are great and can be effective, but if you set your blind where the deer want to be you will almost always be successful. Same way with tracking or stalking deer.

      Look for deer sign, as in paths or scrapes. Scrapes especially are good sign that there is a buck around.

      During the rut you will never do better than overlooking a bit of ground that hold does in it.The real thing always trumps any bit of trickery we can come up with.

      Good luck!

        Food, water, shelter, and does all draw bucks. Scout and watch from where they approach the food plot, and where they go afterward. If you can find their bed site you can set up along their trail from there to the food plot and nail one. I can't speak to doe urine, never tried it.
