If you were traveling over 5 hours to scout public land for a hunt in late October and felt comfortable putting out a camera....what would you put out as an attractant to get pictures of mature bucks in the area?

The camera would be there for about 2 months so it would need to be something that would last a while.

I understand the risk of getting the camera stolen, but I'm willing to take that chance.

Thoughts???

Salt.

Maybe some sweet smelling fruity something? Bought some land several years ago, that had a trailer for storage. While cleaning it out I found some liquid Apple mineral stuff so I poured it out on a stump. Got lots of pics from it.

trophy rock, can't put food/feed out on public land. At least on a WMA you can't. They do love trophy rocks though, or pretty much any salt. Maybe get the loose kind that soaks into the ground, they seem to love to eat it out of the dirt.

Trophy Rock should last a few months.

Make sure it is okay to run a camera or put out an attractant on the land you are looking into.

You also don't need an attractant to get buck pictures. Set the camera on a travel route or natural food source.

5 hrs? I hope this is a "big buck State" that you are talking about.

Trophy Rock, although Deer Cane in the plastic jug is probably the easiest.

To be sure, scouting and placing trail cameras are two different things entirely. The two are often confused as being the same.
