I would agree. That seems a bit early for that kind of scent. I don't use any scent during our bow hunting season. I look for areas where deer tend to move from bedding areas to feeding areas and hunt some where in the middle. I try not to get to close to the bed or to close to the food so not to spoke them out of there confort zone. There are only two of us in our club that bow hunt so I don't want to mess things up for the other guys when rifle season comes in. But back to tator post on scent. What is ya'lls recommendations for which types of scent for pre rut versus rut?
