Lightbulb Any used the #1 Select Estrus

Was just wondering if any of you fellow members have used the #1 Select Estrus with the Dip Keys? There's a cold front coming in tonight & going to be about 18 degrees in the morning was wondering if this would be a good time to use this or do you only need to use this during the rut? Hope you guys can help me out.

GOD BLESS
Tim

I have noticed that you reach a point when it is too cold for scents like that. If your product of choice freezes not enough scent goes in the air to do much good. At this point I'll use scent candles or a heated scent dispenser. As of yesterday scents are still working for me as well as communication type calling.

Yeah those key wicks will look like popsicles in that weather. I'd wait and use when its a tad warmer.


The select does work. I use some out of one of those kits and had rubs in both the spots I used it in. They just didn't happen to walk by while I was in the stand.

I prefer the golden estrus over the select 1 and I think its just a bit more on the cost. Most times I will use two different scents on scrapes or my mock scrapes. I like the golden estrus and code blue products. I don't use anything pre/post rut. I know others on this site do use pre rut scents with success.
