The diesel fuel works especially if you are targeting only hogs. The deer will stay away.

About 2 weeks ago I put20 pounds of corn in a 5 gallon bucket with 6 old beers, 2 cut up apples, and topped it off with well water.

It smells really RIPE right now! I figure the pigs in our area will hit it within 24 hours when I decide to put it out.

Happy Hunting!

Dig a 5 gallon bucket sized hole, pour in the corn, throw a couple beers into the corn, cover the whole mess up with 4-5 inches of dirt, sit back and enjoy the fighting......

What we do in France for attract hogs is ,put some tar on trees( from the bottom to 3 foots hight)(you can find tar in the horses shop)usually on each place use 2 trees but not too close than the place where you feed(around 50 or 100 feets)because this take away doe for few times.For feeding hogs I use corn with some truffe extract on,this is work very well,put the corn directly on land,use 4 pounds of corn,but the most important maybe is the water,choise a place where you can find water,if in you place you dont have water,make a hole,put a stong plastic sheet on the bottom and add water,this keep hogs near this place.Remenber you, that the day where you whant hunting hogs,try to not walk to much on the place,hogs have a very poor view but have a very very good sence of smell.
Regards

I'm not sure that hogs have universally bad eyesight. I think it matters as to the environment. I think in the forest, where they don't have to see great distance, they focus only where they have to... like for truffles.

However, when hunted in the plain or on the ranches here, when they saw you coming from a distance, even great distance of several hundred yards, they were off at a dead run, and so that experience has led me to believe that their eyesight is somewhat driven by the environment they find themselves.

I think that they hear pretty good too, but their nose is every bit as you say...

Here, boars love to rub themselves on pine trees (the resin kills the parasites)
Tar works pretty well too.
Quietness is the golden rule to keep them on a spot.

A 3 liter bottle with corn, a little bit of flat soda maybe, or something sweet and fill it with water and cap it for a few weeks. When it's good and smelly, tie it to a tree, T-post, or just bury it up to the neck. without the cap. They'll come around and start batting it about trying to get the corn out. Cutting a few holes in it helps too.

you guys that use diesel fuel must not eat the hog meat?

I wouldn't want anything I was eating to be ingesting diesel fuel...

Sour the corn with water and the cheapest beer I can find in a five gallon bucket. Add in Kool Aid and any fruit that I can find. Seal up the bucket, and usually when the top begins to bulge out (2-3 weeks), it was ready. I just poured mine on the ground because I wasn't going to put that stuff anywhere near my feeder, but I did have the luxury of hunting them away from my spot. Good luck, and kill 'em all.

X2! Once they get a taste of the "spirits" they enjoy getting buzzed on it and cannot help themselves to return.
