I'm just curious to see if anybody has had luck with Big & J. I've used it this season and it really works. I've used the BB2 Liquid, Headrush, and the CUBE. Here are the BEST of pictures when I have had deer come to it.
I used to use different baits a lot, but found that deer came just as readily to a 100lb bag of corn (approx $8) as they did to a 5lb “specialized attractant” ($15+). Corn lasted longer and was cheaper. But deer never would hardly touch either one during daylight once the season opened.
If you’re in an area with very little hunting pressure then you may have a different experience. For me, it’s not worth the money. I started just figuring out where the deer were going to be naturally and started having a lot more success.
I've used their Deadly Dust 'long range attractant'. I've just mixed it in with corn or sprinkled it on the corn.
I don't know if it's been the Deadly Dust or the "brown, it's down" neighbor suddenly stopping shooting every danged buck he saw (NOT hearing the gunshots like we used to), but over the past couple years, I am seeing more bucks. They're not necessarily 'shooters' -- and I don't care. I'm just happy to see antlered 1.5 and 2.5 year old deer on my land. Best results have been once the rut starts .. like always … but I am seeing more and better bucks now.
