I'm liking the comments so far! FYI, when I bow hunt PA I catch the last couple days of pre-rut then full rut. I think this is the perfect time to use rut related products. So many times have bucks came into scent wicks for our group that I can 100% attest to their positive use as an additional tool for taking deer. Scent wicks placed in a Y formation at specific yardages from your stand site are perfect markers to insure your shots are with-in your effective kill range. I have never had a buck adversely react to scent wicks, however, at times they may walk past them without paying attention to them. For me rut scents are simply another tool to achieve success.
