Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

As I said above; I don't want to leave any scent of any kind in the woods. That's one reason I don't use scent attractors or cover scents. Call me parinoid but I believe that deer can and will associate any scent with danger after awhile.

I wear rubber boots, scent lock coveralls and gloves while walking into the stand just to not leave scent on the limbs and grass I walk through. I can't count the times a deer has smelled my trail hours after I got to stand and turned around and went the other way.

"When a mans gotta go, a mans gotta go" and along with Joel I don't think it's a problem.
I've had deer walk right into the area just after I went 15 or 20 minutes earlier BUT I usually try to go before I get into the woods.

As a matter of fact last tuesday and I have witnesses to this, I was doing my "I gotta go dance" and the 2 guys I was hunting with headed into their spots.
As they left, I relieved myself just before heading in myself. As I started to walk into the woods I spotted 3 doe's quartering away
(those doe's were about 70 yards from where we split up, not spooked at all)
I decided to only go in about 20 yards. Well about 2 hours later (right about sunset) I had a "HUGE Racked Buck" (maybe 10 or 12 points) come into about 60 yards from where I pee'd a couple hours earlier BUT the buck never offered a shot, he managed to stay tucked behind a lot of new growth the stuff a bullet can't even make it thru and I was bowhunting, he browsed for about 5 or 6 minutes and All I could do was watch it walk off. But that's ok because I know where he lives now!

WhitetailFever, due you wait for a comercial on tv in the shack or just go? Just kidding. I try not to leave anything smelling of me around my stand. I have a bladder that allows mucho stand time.

For what it's worth, I used to be a bottle man myself. two years ago I took my 13 year old daughter to one of my favorite spots. We were both in the stand together. After about two hours of sitting, the coffee kicked in. The bottle wasn't an option with her sitting there, so I decided to climb down. At this time I was thinking I just blew her chance of bagging one. I walked about 40 yards away and relieved myself. I climbed back in the stand and thought we were waisting our time. Not fifteen minutes later two does walked to the exact spot where I had just peed. After a couple of minutes they just wondered off. Just behind them came a nice tall eigtht point. It walked to the exact spot I just peed and smelled that spot. He stood there long enough for my daughter to take aim and take the shot. What I thought was a ruined hunt turned into one of the best days Ive ever had. Theres nothing like watching one of your kids take their first deer and a very nice one at that.

Years ago, I along with several friends did trips into the Bob Marshall Wilderness here in Montana. Our camps were crude but very livable and of course nature had alot of callings. A certain area away from the main camp beyond the horses was where I would relieve myself against a tree.

Now the next day when light came can you imagine the sight when you see a deer licking the bark and ground from where you done urinated? That's right man it brought the dear in like had had spread some "C'Mere Deer" all over the place.

I have never worried about it after that.

Default bottle or bag

I have to agree with most of the other posters. I bring a bottle or ziplock bag. Here in MN the wind shifts throughout the day. 2 years ago I was caught with my pants down..literally. A sneaky doe came up behind me while I was in my stand taking care of business. Short of winking at her there wasn't much I could do.
