| | Dipping/chewing on the hunt
In my years of hunting I enjoy putting in a pinch of tobacco. Every time I dip in the stand I think of the effects it may or may not have on the deer. Spitting in a bottle for instance or on the ground. One evening I can remember sitting in my stand and I had no bottle to spit in, so I spat on the ground. I was set up about 15 yards from a solid trail and before I knew it here came a doe out of the nearby thicket. As the doe walked the trail closer to me it kind of wearied of the trail and began walking toward my tree. I was amazed to see the doe smelling my spit and just wondering what it could be. It then got back on the trail and continued walking.
