New to bow hunting. This is my first season with it. Last year was my first season rifle hunting
:-) so I'm fairly new lol. I went bow hunting on my boyfriends cousins property and spooked a doe while walking to my stand at about 2pm :-/ wasn't to happy lol. We got plenty of tracks out around my stand, one of which is about a 200-250lb buck. What kinda stuff does everyone put out on there plots? Whats some good tactics to use? We have used Acorn Rage, throw and grow (which hasn't really came up good this year, worked wonderful last year) We have also used that deer cane. We haven't really had them mess with anything but the corn. I'm shooting a cross bow with 20' or 22' arrows (can't exactly remember lol) with 100 grain. This is in the st helena parish area in Pine Grove. Last year during rifle season in St helena parish, in Greensburg, we put out rice bran and apple bran and put molases (spelling) on top of that and they ate the crap outa that. Any sugestions for a new hunter and BRAND NEW bow hunter? lol

We are looking for a decent track and bay dog. We have some younger, inexperienced dogs and we need something that can show them a thing or two. Don't have a whole lot of money to spend, so let me know what you have.

We are also looking for a decent catch dog. Again we do not have a lot of money to spend.

Also if you have any hunting equipment you may want to sell, such as cut vests/collars ex. Please let us know.

We are also looking for some very cheap hogs. Cheaper the better lol. or

We do have oaks on the property. I pass by one on the way to my stand. It's dropping a ton of acorns and they are some good ones too. But I don't see any sign of deer around it.

The deer are coming from the cut over by my stand. there is also a path in the woods that they have been taking. The deer tracks are ALL OVER in front of my stand. I'm a VERY rough early riser, so I haven't been able to make it out there in the early AM yet. I had spooked a doe walking to my stand around 2PM last week. A big doe at that. she was in the thicket infront of my stand which is about 50 or more yards away. how ever where the most tracks are is about 30-40 yards away. I know last year in St Helena we caught 90% of our deer on camera moving at night. Even wild life n fisheries said they were moving odd in that area that year. Is it good to use doe piss to cover scent up?

We use black mouth curr/catahoula cross. We have one plott hound female. If you plan on having bay dogs, I would recomend the cur. You may even want to consider something like a cur/pit cross. The pit bull ads a little body and aggression to the dog. I would also recommend using a pit as a catch dog. or a pit/american bull dog cross. or something that may even have mastiff in them some where.
