Been hearing and seeing stuff about Big&J attractnt, I want to try it but want to hear from actual users of it and opinions... The bag says "will bring them in from a far" well maybe not that exact word but close lol

I tried BuckNuts eairler in the season but coons liked it more..

Every single attractant will claim that it brings them in. Marketing. Marketing. Marketing.

Sometimes works, sometimes fails. Is what it is. Thank God you have a place and time to hunt. (!!!!!!)

Corn attracts does!
Does then eat corn, and bucks come in checking for a hot doe!

Only attractant and scent that has worked without fail most of my hunting life.

Great for bringing in hogs from near and far. So far the deer go right by it.

I bought a bag of Big &J and was not impressed.

I took a very nice ten-point at a feeder that I had been sweetening with small piles of Sugar Beet Crush. He walked in one morning when there was just enough light to see that his spread was plenty wide enough to meet AR's. He stopped and checked a spot where I had been pouring small amounts of the stuff out over the course of a week or two.

Funny thing, I have an unopened bag of the stuff in my trailer that I'll probably use next week. IMO, food attractants work best late in the season when all the acorns, berries, and naturally sweet browse is long gone.

If you use one it can't be howling out there or they won't pick up on the smell. A light breeze and they work great.

Tried a bag late in the season when I abandoned the stand and hit the woods. Poured it out the night before and it was gone the next morning. Game Cam had one young 8 sitting there lapping it up. But if there was a pile of corn there I probably would have gotten the same results.

Seems like most of that stuff attracts more pigs than deer.

I still have most of a bag laying on the ground after a month. Only on thing on cam was rabbits and 'dillos. Deer are feasting on acorns here so all I can say is they like acorns better than Big & G.
