The Best Deer Attractants Bucks Just Can't Resist

Our secret for luring big bucks in the field is in these five products.

Serious hunters seek hunting strategies that leave very little left to chance. We want to know how to attract deer to us. One of the surest ways is by using a deer attractant product. We've all been bombarded with advertisements for the many deer attractants available today, but which actually work?

It is important to note that hunting regulations vary from state to state. Some states consider using deer attractants as baiting deer, a banned practice. Know the rules for where you live and hunt. If you live in a state that permits lures, any option on this list of deer attractants could help you seal the deal.

In the ultra-competitive deer-attractant industry, these five companies have proven their products' value over time by producing irrefutable results for all the hardcore deer hunters out there, whether bowhunting, hunting with a crossbow, a rifle, shotgun, or other weapon.

2.  Apple Burst by Antler King

Deer Attractants


Apple-flavored attractants have been around for years, and countless longtime hunters refuse to try anything else. Sometimes if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right? Deer love apples so apple-flavored attractants seem to work well. It won't just be the mature bucks loving it, however. There will be fawns, does, and all kinds of deer munching away so throw a block on a well-positioned stump, hang a trail camera, and be prepared to watch as the deer devour it all—stump and all.

A variety of apple-flavored products have been created throughout the years including apple-scented corn, apple-scented liquids, and apple-scented blocks. As a deer supplement, the Apple Burst formula from Antler King has scored high marks.
