The gland we're referring to, located on rear legs at the inside of the knee. The bucks urinate on them during the rut which blackens them and strong smell.. I'm not sure if another buck would scent follow a trail of another buck. If estrus doe scent is added to the hock dragging then maybe this would mimic the rut action and cause a buck to follow????? It's not something I've ever done or wanted to mess with. The hocks should be removed as a final job, do not cut any meat with the knife until you clean it.
