Default Attractants?

Need advice on attractants, quick background before question, I hunt on 60 acres here in texas, majority of the landscape is big cedars and prickly pears ,deer we get on our land are passing throught from neighbors land, none of the neighbors hunt on their land and don't allow us to hunt it, there is several large bucks we have seen on their property, the only time we have seen them on ours has been chasin doe during the rut ,once passing through from one end of the property to the other, basically they go from one neighbors feilds/stock pond to the woods at the back of our property, since all the rain we have had our large stock pond is full now so hopefully that helps this year. We have feeders set up but they can be unpredictable the last few years, I did a search and found a pretty good post on attractants but just want to get feedback from a large group, I have watched the hunting shows and they all swear by their sponsors products and then you see on the web people saying they are worthless, Just would like positive and negative feedback from actual users of the products, Thank You in advance

Unfortunately, I cannot help. I never use any artificial attractants or cover scents. To those that do, I say, go for it. To me, it's just a way to separate hunters from their hard earned money.

If those were my woods, I would concentrate more on a setup in areas I expect bucks to cross. I would also try to determine where the does spend most of the time on your property.

Good Luck!
