I have read where those scent drippers shut off at night when the temperature drops. What happens on warm nights, the buck scent checks several times at night finds nothing to track and leaves the area. I prefer the wick pullouts that you can seal them up at night, estrus scents do work, I've been using them from the 70's with good success during the archery rut period. We arrive for a few days of heavy prerut and finish with full rut activities happening. It's a great time to be archery hunting,

Basically the same thing that happens when you put it out and it works as intended, he will keep coming back at different times to intercept the receptive doe. we don't have too many days during the pre rut/ rut that the nights are warmer than the day.

Could be the same buck from last year... He is under my mock scrape with the scent dripper. Just 15 yards from climber. These were taken Oct 18 at 2 AM. The little buck (picture Oct 12 1AM) is the one I see just about every hunt now in the morning. I had him in the xbow scope twice inside 15 yards (just for good practice of technique, movement, etc..) on Saturday. I hope I can get the big un during pre-rut.

Nice buck in the first photo. With the rut coming up, hopefully bucks will show themselves in daylight hours. Right now the report from PA is all deer are showing a nocturnal habit that wasn't seen just 5 years ago. They are learning.

I'm heading to my club in Buckingham, Va on Thursday night. Crossbow hunt on Friday and Muzzy on Saturday. I won't disturb the "house" buck until Nov 3 and 4 (evening hunt) and again on Nov 6 all day ....

I may do a Buck Bomb (Dominant Buck) on the 3rd and Buck Bomb (Estrus) on the 6th if the woods "feel" right for activity.

I got a nice doe on friday from my ladder stand with my Tenpoint Titan HLX crossbow. The NAP Spitfire expandable sounded like a fastball hitting a catchers mitt. The shot was 20 yds straight through lungs. Exit wound was just devastating. A diamond looking cut 3in diameter. Tomorrow afternoon I'm going after the big one behind house. Here is a new young buck that has showed up. If you look at the very top of picture you can see my scrape dripper above his antlers. I'll let him walk until the next year or two..
