I use any kind of scent. Corn, Apple, White Oak Acorn are all good attractants. If they happen to get a whiff they will hang around trying to find the source. I have experimented with scents like that many times. It wont spook them either to smell an apple scent where no apple trees are found or corn scent in thick piney, swamp areas where no corn would be. I always take pine branches from the trees at my house and squish them all up and rub them all over my clothes and even hang them in my jacket strings.
