I've got a free ranging fallow buck that occassionally roams thru my property. Anything I can do to attract him. He won't come to my feeder and never stops in my food plot. Do they like alfalfa like axis do?

Have you posted this in the Exotic Hunting section? 'Might get more responses there. I would like a nice fallow buck to visit my place. So far, just axis and I think a black buck doe once.

Hope you get him. Good hunting.
