another thing I did last season. Apple cider w a teaspoon of vanille mixed together in a spray bottle. Sprayed on my boots when I got close to my stand and sprayed on the the stand and sticks after setting up. Didn't have any reasoning behind doing this except for deer loving apples and vanilla being a good curiosity scent(Fitzgerals's Vanilla Killa). I can't say as it attracted the deer,but when they came in they seemed to be alot less jittery in the later part of the season.
I also made my own feed block for my yard. Cracked corn in a stew pot,warm molasses poured over and stirred in, a jar of chunky peanut butter warmed(like making PB fudge),pour in and mix,diced apples poured in and mixed. Let it set-up. It took some effort getting it out of the pan but the deer loved it
