Default early season question.

Hello all. I was curious, as to what if any, attractant scents or calls you guys use for early season hunts?

Thanks,
Fuzz

I try to stay away from scent of any kind, I know others are big believers in them. As far as calls I use a grunt tube and some horn rattleing. In both cases a little goes a long way in the early season.

Early season I'll use Tinks acorn scent (cover scent & attractant), and the Buck Bomb Doe "P"

Calls? early season I avoid using them. I do carry "the can" with me but will only use it If I have a deer in view that isn't coming in range,
then I'll give it a try but I try to avoid all calls until around mid-season..
BUT if you're hearing deer vocalize then YES use the calls but if you're not hearing the deer then don't use the calls. Good Luck

Bruce and I are pretty much on the same page. Doe pee,Buck urine in the NONrut form as well as interdigital scents will work. Deer calling is fine but used short, soft, and sweet. However the lost fawn call works very well for does. There use to be a video by WoodsWise Products that was very good in identifying these calls. Not sure if it is still available.

I stay away from scents until the rut. Early season I just try to catch them in their regular routine

Me and Toneking do this about the same way. I try to catch them in their feeding areas early season. I carry a flip can and use it if I notice some fawns seperated from their mothers or just get down right bored.

I don't use any scents,never have but need to. I wouldn't go in the woods without my primos medium can I love it has killed me at least 3 deer in the past, and that 4-9 pointer with buckfever. That deer came from behind me by the time I saw it was out of my shooting lane from behind it was in some leaves for about 10 yards headed straight to the left i made a grunt with my mouth just stopped and looked I grabbed my can call once it didn't work he just looked to under my stand after 2 or 3 times he turned his head and moved his body enough for me to get a good shot. Its all personal preference, I think if you make deer sounds and make them realisticly you will not hurt anything but not loud sounds just soft sounds.
