Hi Everyone.

So I recently picked about 200 pounds of apples from some of our local crab apple trees, and now I'm left wondering when would be the best time to start laying some out by my stand.

I'll be bow hunting this year, starting on Oct 4.

When should a bow hunter start dropping apples at his stand?

and

Do you have any tips on the placement of your apples?

Thanks!

Ive been putting out a little bit here there. Ive been putting out horse feed for about a month now. I will start putting out apples steady here in a week or so.

i usually start putting apples out labor day weekend...
i usually throw out about 4 bags at first that way i dont have go back for a few weeks!
that way no one disturbs the area and the deer get used to going without any human scent around
has worked for me the last 7 years!
each time i shot a deer they came out of the woods and straight to the apples without any hesitation
