Hey guys, just wanted to run a few things by you and see what you got. Now that the rut activity has picked up significantly, the deer in my area are off their normal patterns, and come from anywhere at any time, my question would have to be, what scent techniques do you use to attract let’s say a buck cruising for does. I have used drag lines with sucess but would like your input on mock scrape set ups, scent wicks, and other ideas you may have on how I could get a bucks attention... I have considered using a decoy but the deer I see usually come within 60-70 yards, i just need that little distraction to spark curiosity and take some attention off me, and bring them just a little closer for a high percentage shot. Hope all your seasons are going well!

I've always had luck with Tinks #69 doe in heat scent. Just brought in a buck last saturday not 5 minutes after climbing my tree. He walked right up next to my hanging wick. Too bad it was just a four point. Good luck!

I have played around a little in the past with scents but not all that much, till this year. And man I am impressed with some of the new ones.
Forget dragging a piece of towel behind you for a drag. try buck bomb, doe in estrus urine. This product is fantastic. You can spray a trail that you want the deer to follow and it works GREAT. You can also if the need arises snap the valve to fully open and empty the entire 5.oz contents in a fog that will move downwind for up to a 1/8 mile in a 6mph wind. Another product I am using this year is the FUSE also by buck bomb. It is a plastic o-ring sealed housing that contains a 1" x 12" strip of wick type material. it reels up at the end of your hunt for future use and includes a vial of doe estrus urine so you don't need to purchase anything else to use it.

i understand tinks bought buck bomb. that may or may not be true. i used a couple the other day, said tinks on the can in small print. the bomb worked well but no deer came in, not a surprise if you're in nh. the down side its like burning a ten dollar bill.

have you had deer work into it?

Actually, From what I understand. Buck bombs technology in scent disbursement is so cutting edge and tinks is not tooled up to market their product that way. So tinks entered into an agreement with buck bomb to put their(tinks) product into the buck bomb style aerosol can systems. I have used it to create a drag and it worked really well. yesterday I locked it down and finished the can that way. I would not recommend lock down mode until you establish that deer are moving that day. as was not the case yesterday. that was like burning a 5 dollar bill but I learned from it. education costs.

I always have a problem with the scent freezing up. But I've seen this new thing out that heats the scent and sends out the warm vapors that carry off with the wind. I wish I could remember the name.
