best ways to attract deer?

I have a camp in roseland, LA. We got it right after deer season ended, when we got it we put up a deer feader and at first the deer didnt come at all but after like two weeks they started showing up according to the neighbors, our deer feader's battery went dead and we havent gotten a new one since and the dear are gone, i know deer season is coming up and i wanted to know what are some effective ways to attract deer in such a short amount of time, something that might bring in the big bucks, or just something that would bring anything haha.

    the absolute best way to attract big bucks is to dress up like a doe and cover urself with doe scent. and right before he "attacks" u. u pop him with a 357!

    You can get somethin around here I think we used last year was an "elk bomb" the big bucks think somethin else is n the territory and come ready to fight. I saw the 3 biggest deer I've ever seen using this.

    Take dirty underwear over to the neighbors to channel (wind)the deer in your direction.

    peanut butter, buck bombs, acorn rage, corn, rice brand, Koolaid on top of rice brand really helps rice brand doesnt have a scent but you put some cherry koolaid on there and see what happens lol also pepper mints

    Sweet potatoes work great around here, they rot faster in a pile, you need to spread them out.

    we normally plant wheat, and put out corn, rice bran, salt, molasses, peanut butter, just depends on what we have and feel like trying.

    there are tons of scents out there like the buck bombs and stuff and most work prety well. but yes, i have shot 2 deer bending over a jar of peanut butter. that reallllyyyy works! also i trick i heard. if there are any scraping or scrates in the dirt left by deer, pee in them. by sccraping the dirt, they are marking that their territory, and when they spell it, theyll come back to reclaim it. seen a few decents bucks this way. just drink alot of water before u go out in the morning lol

    Keep your feeders running with corn of course. I also liked to add protein pellets, to help bulk them up. I watched numerous deer before the season began bumbing into the feeder legs to drop more feed. Also get yourself a solar panel and rechargeable battery and you wont have to worry about your battery again.

    Spartenhonda300  mentioned Koolaid,,,,,,  I 1st used it last year, I now have deer that would climb a friggin tree to eat grape flavored purple corn   ! ! !
     
    I'll take a couple of the large round tubs bought from a dollar general store, the one with rope for handles, fer 5 bucks..... dump in a 2.50 little jug of grape koolaid and about 10 inches of water,,,, stir it up good,,, dump in a 50 lb bag of corn,,,,put more water to cover all corn,,,, let it sit for 4-5 days while the corn is soaking up the purple water,,,, Have yerself sum purple corn.  If you left it dry out some ( I have installed drain plugs on the bottom of the tubs) it will work in feeders without gunking them up.... I'll put in a layer of dry regular corn, then a layer of purple corn, ect,,,, then the purple corn won't stick and gum up inside the feeder.
     
    you'll be amazed at how well it attacks deer, and believe it or not, I have found by trail cams that bucks are more attracted to it than does. I have several pictures of bucks fighting over a pile of purple corn on the ground. It will not stay there long and the deer get attracted to it quick.

    Ive found out that my cigarette butts attract deer. The small does I dont shoot will come right under my stand and eat em. Every single time. I guess its the tobacco.

    I had a couple buttonheads that would walk up under my stand let me flick ashes on them just to smell it, everyday. Then one day they went to far on the other side and something spooked them and never saw them until 2 years later when they were 6 pointers (pretty sure it was the same two).
