one more question of discussion.
If a doe in heat scent is placed out awhile before the rut which do you think would happen?
The buck would run away because he knows it is still not time for the rut.
The buck would be curious and move on in anyway just hoping that there is a chance a doe came in heat a 3-4 weeks early.
A deer isn't going to be effected by a scent being put out early. It happens internally to deer. It happens when it's supposed to happen. A buck would simply stop and smell it.....and then continue on his way.
