Using doe's urine attractans post-rut?

Do you guys think it's still a good idea to add a few drops of doe's urine on a boot before going into the blind now once the rut is officially over? How about using doe calls?

Never really used calls, but doe pee should help cover your scent.

second rut is just getting going. and just doe pee should never hurt now the doe estrus, if it works at all, should only be used during the rut.

It won't hurt to use doe urine on the boots, if anything it will mask your boot scent.

heres a trick , use two different doe pee's , one on each boot . this will give the indication of two does traveling together.

The deer cycle about every 30 days so the ones not bred yet will cycle till they are.The main rut may be over but it lingers on somewhat. However non-estrous doe pee is fine year-round however I prefer coon pee on my boots. Fresh dirt is a good boot cover and a cow pattie stepped in where cows are is good too.[just remove em before going in the house]

I think it is a bad idea. Keep in mind where you go the scent goes including on your stand and up your tree. Not to mention in your truck. Anyway what the heck is wrong with the old standard scent drag?

Well, unfortunately I got Tinks Doe-In-Estrus and wondered wether to use it or not. I read somewhere that Big Boys might get a bit careless if they smell a hot doe after the rut and wondered if using it now might be a good idea.

However, we are forecasted to get a major snow afternoon, so I hope deer might be eating before it and I might get a shot. If not, I would try to hunt during the snow and probably would try the morning after-the-snow. Hopefully playing around the snow storm, I don't need to mix 2 different strategies.

Big bucks do get careless, rarely but they do!
So using the Doe-In-Estrus is actually a good idea to try this time of year, I've been using Code Blue Doe Estrous on an active scrape , just a couple sprays as the day ends and each morning when I return he's freshened it again, I'm sure I'm dealing with a wise old buck, totally nocturnal but IF there's a chance he decides to get careless, I plan on being there when he does.
Good Luck to you.
