Saw at TSC today there were a bunch of buck bombs on clearance. There was Doe "P", Beet smash, accorn rage.
Has anyone used these and had success?

I've only had very young deer respond to the buck bombs. I haven't used one in a probably 4 years. Never know though.

I'm not a big believer in gimmicks however I've had success with mature bucks responding to the stuff during the rut.

I have tried a few different scents, never seems to do much for our area.

The only scent attractants that have worked for us are the tarsal glands cut off of a local deer. We have seen several better than average bucks for the area respond to and get shot while hanging them out.

+1 - this works pretty well actually.

Tried buck bombs - not much response.

I have used several different buck bombs.... the Ambush works pretty well as an all season scent.... haven't had a ton of luck with any others.

One thing y'all should remember with scent products - especially natural scent products. Urine, or anything urine-derived - has a shelf life. More than a month or two old and it's no good. I laugh when I see guys pull out their Tink's or CodeBlue and it is syrupy and brown. That stuff is so old! And that why so many people report little success with these bombs, drips, or other scent products. If it's not fresh, it ain't gonna work - and could actually drive deer off.

Young bucks especially will investigate ANY different smell - they're kinda stupid - you remember what it was like. I've seen young bucks come investigate a cigarette butt, or where someone took a big dump. I even know I guy who makes his own scrapes by peeing in it himself f- and swears it works (actually I have heard this from several sources)

Doe urine - the urine itself - has no value. This is what folks don't understand. When a doe urinates, the stream sometimes picks up uterine discharge - and THIS is what the bucks pick up and smell - even in small does. It's the female hormones.

You want to do any experiment? Try getting your GF's or wife used pads and hang them in a tree. It's the same hormones, but in a 1000x greater concentration. See what shows up by your stand then - if you dare

Only tried them twice during the rut several years ago. No effect whatsoever. I've also never had any success with Tink's, Code Blue or any of the other doe estrus scents.

Like redchevy, the only thing I've found that may successfully bring in mature deer are tarsal glands from a doe in heat. Killed one two seasons ago, determined she was in estrus so I removed her tarsal glands and placed in a ziploc. Hung them near one of my stands that afternoon and had a really nice mature buck come in about 15 minutes later. He came from downwind and had his nose in the air, to the ground, back in the air. Have never seen that buck before or since, except on trail cameras but it was obvious he was looking for that hot doe!

I haven't had much luck with them, but here lately the only luck I have had was bad.
