By the sound of it I'm guessing your trying to bow hunt a field ? Maybe you should save the field for your gun season and back on up into the woods and set up beside one of the main trails to and from that field or water, something that's going to have them walking past you n not just random all over the place.

Have you tried using "the can" - it's something you flip over, then right side up, to make a doe bleat sound? What about a pair of antlers simulating a pair of bucks fighting? There is also plenty of gear out there to simulate deer grunts and coughs.

Just trying to toss ideas out . . . . best of luck!

Go to the deer, don't wait for them to come to you. If where you're at isn't where they like to go, they won't come over there. Look for trails thy take coming into the woods and set up downwind of those. Does are pretty reliable.
