Sticks that look like snakes and snakes that look like sticks.
So I am climbing out of my tree stand and as soon as my foot hits the ground I get an extreme urge to pee so I start high tailing it towards the truck willwhich is about 700 yards away when I get about 50 yards from the truck I can't take it anymore and drop my bow and backpack and just when I am getting ready to pee a "stick" about three feet in front of me starts slithering away. Needless to say I didn't need to pee anymore.

Why not just pee where you were at? Pee is pee. Pee in a scrape and put a cam on it. I use to be worried about peeing near any blind but when I was a about 15 my uncle started seeing a bar fly. He took her to the lease and he corned my spot for me. He told me he was corning and turned to see her peeing right where he had corned across the road by the truck. He said you might want to hunt another spot. I did but checked that spot and no corn left at all. Could have been coons but I have kinda been experimenting this theory since then and I don't think human urine scares deer what so ever.

So you're saying you can use human urine as a cover scent and it won't spook deer?good luck with that

I whizz in buck scrapes all the time and check them the next day. They will be freshly pawed out and urinated in by at least one buck. I have heard of people making a mock scrape and whizzing in it.

Whiz is whiz. I've never seen it bother deer, other than to make them curious.

Last season my hunting buddy's ten year old son had to take a dump really bad, which he did ten yards from the stand. A half hour later we watched a doe sniffing the pile.

Did you ever stop to think you never saw it bother deer because the deer it bothered were probably headed for the next county?

SFA did the study many years ago that put the myth about human urine spooking deer to bed. Heck, in the study, they even used "new car smell" and deer hit those scrapes as much as ones treated with deer urine.

Abstract
Quote:
To determine effectiveness of traditional (buck and doe urine) and non-traditional scents in mock scrapes, infrared-triggered cameras were placed on mock scrapes treated with various scents to monitor deer visitations. In 1998, four replications of mock scrapes with rutting buck urine, mock scrapes with estrous doe urine, mock scrapes with human urine, and no treatment were monitored from 11 October - 5 December in Houston and Trinity Counties, Texas. Mock scrapes were constructed in areas typified by published descriptions of natural scrapes. All treatments received visitations by deer. For bucks, treatments receiving the most visits were scrapes with rutting buck urine and scrapes with human urine. No difference could be detected between these two treatments in either the number or age of bucks. Mock scrapes with estrous doe urine were not different from no treatment. Primary visitation of mock scrapes occurred during a 3.5-week period extending about 2.5 weeks prior to normal peak rut and 1 week after. In 1999, six replications of mock scrapes with rutting buck urine, mock scrape with estrous doe urine, mock scrape with "new car" scent, and natural scrapes were monitored beginning October 26. Preliminary data indicate deer readily visited all treatments regardless of scent used on mock or natural scrapes. Results indicate scents used in conjunction with mock scrapes are eliciting curiosity behavior and have little or no sexual attraction.

I killed a nice buck one morning about 15 minutes after climbing down from my tree stand to take a squat. He dropped about 10 yards from the pile I had left on the ground.
