it's an Attractant, Deer supposedly love the stuff according to the manufacturer (Muzzy Broadheads)...

Here's the link to their store if you want to check it out.
Muzzy Bowhunter's Set-up

you're suppsed to use it around the area of your tree stand before you climb in, you spray it in the area's that you want the deer to stop at, So you can set up your shot as the deer stop to check out the stuff you sprayed. Sounds like a good idea doesn't it? I mean "IF" it works ..

yeah i dont think those things actually (bring) the deer. but in their defense if there is something that will attract the deers attention for a few seconds as it walks thru your area it is worth it to me. i dont buy attractants to bring deer to my stand, i buy them just in case a deer walks thru maybe it will divert his attention enough that i can draw my bow back and shoot. $10 is prob not to bad for that stuff. its a whole lot cheaper than C-Mere Deer.

Well I've never been a big fan of scents with "Attractants and Lures" topping my list of "items to be wary of" but I agree that if it can divert or grab a bucks attention long enough for me to draw on then it may be worth giving it a try.

I don't believe that any company has made a product that will make a Deer come running in So I'm always skeptical about trying the stuff..

Cool Bow Hunters Set Up

This past Deer season here in Vermont was anouther tough one! There are no Deer left in this state! The first deer that I have seen in the Vermont woods in the last two years happened to be a nice 180lb. 2 1/2 year old 6 pointer! It was opening weekend of rifle season. I jumped him on my way into the woods while tip toeing to my favorite spot and I listened to him trot away and slow down a hundred yards away. Then I did not hear him again. I sprayed Bowhunters Set Up into the air and onto the tree branches around me and sat down to wait. (It was 4:15 in the afternoon. Just before dusk I started to hear a light crunching sound off in the direction that the deer had run off to. He was tip toeing from downwind coming straight towards me! His head was up, his lip curled back, sniffing the air! At 10 yards I dropped him with a single shot to the lower neck area! (There was no other shot to take because he was facing me and walking straight towards me!)
Yes! This stuff works! This was the third deer I had gotten with this stuff! They really like the smell of it! Bucks and Does all seem to be curious about the smell. Buy some, you will be pleased.
