When it comes to successful trophy whitetail deer hunting, there are a lot of techniques and strategies you can use to increase your chances of bringing home that buck you've had your eye on. One of the best techniques involves the use of scents and lures. When it comes to hunting, experts recommend that hunters use scents and lures because, on average, deer’s sense of smell is more than 1,000 times that of a human. When hunting it is important for a hunter to control their own scent so that they can attract a deer using the correct lure.

In hunting, there are different types of scents that you can use in order to have a successful hunt. The goal of using scents and lures is to attract a deer to a certain spot and to hold them long enough so that you have time to take the shot. Scents and lures are primarily used in situations where the hunter can remain stationed rather than on the move such as with tree stand hunting and ground blinds.

Regardless of which type of scent or lure you’re using the goal is to peak the curiosity of the animal. Various types of deer scents and lures are focused on imitating food, and emitting the sex scent. Typically when it comes to the sex scent, the most common smell is similar to the scent of urine produced by does when they are in heat. The sex scent is a great way to attract big bucks that you can shoot down. However keep in mind that with sex scents timing is crucial. You do not want to use the sex scent when does are not actually in estrus because you could scare them off. Estrus is a recurring state in which the female of most mammals will accept male and is capable of conceiving.

When it comes to scents that imitate food the scents are available in concentrated and solid liquid forms. Food scents often imitate the aroma of deer’s most beloved foods. These scents often smell like apples, acorns and berries. When using food scents it is important to place the scents in a reasonable geographic location. You want to ensure that the scents seem natural. In other words only place apple scents where apples are actually grown, same thing for the scent of acorns.

Wow, who would have thought that the scent from food would attract deer. Lucky we can hunt feeders or food plots. The scent of those deer at food sources also attract other deer in the rut. Sort of a win win for us without having to waste extra money on the next gimmick scent or attractant.

Yeah, I have tried many kinds of scents and they don't work.
The best attractant (as stxranchman previously stated) is food. Nothing beats it.
I thought this was an ad when I starting reading it

The best thing you can do is get along their travel path and use a compound that kills their sense of smell becoming olfactis invisible. "Nose Jammer" works pretty good but is still not as potent and complete as the military secret compound for Escape & Evasion use, which is readily available, but still classified top secret. This chemical compund is scrubbed constantly from the world wide web by "whitehat" because it would render working dogs ineffective. If you put the latter in a scrape, they will literally repeatedly run a scrape line from memory all day and night until they get their nose back. This substance works well in the rut because they make stupid mistakes without their nose.

Only thing more unfair-chase than above, is a corn feeder. roflmao

Too funny man, illustrates the different levels of fair chase for sure. I use a rifle, but its usually within 20 yards.
