I have not used any attractants with any luck. Except Tinks 69.

I bought two cans today. Last opening day I sprayed some as I walked to my blind. As sun rise, I was covered up with bucks. More young, but I have seen it work. But only early in season.

Opinions?

It’s one of those things that just depends. I have seen bucks trail up a scent drag. Have also watched deer obviously come into a scent wick I had hanging on a low limb (nose right up on it from down wind). Other times, deer just ignored it. I don’t have an explanation for either. Possibly has to do with when does in that area come into estrous. Several years ago, I had a doe come by me at 8:00 AM. At 2:30 PM, an eight point came by trailing her. Nose on the ground, and followed her path exactly, even making corrections when he veered off to one side. I wonder if I had scent out would that buck would have come to it. I think possibly, as he was actively searching. That day was the one and only time I’ve had a failure to fire with a centerfire cartridge. Just my luck.

Corn feeder and young bucks go together.

I got so many oak trees, corn is barely touched. Last few years, it has rained acorns.

IMO, using a scent is much like throwing a lure near a large mouth bass. It's all depends on the buck's mood at the time.

However, I also believe you can make him a little more interested during the rut by adding something to it, like the sound of a rattle bag or antlers being bumped together.

I put in a 35MM film canister on a cotton ball and only open it when I'm there and hunting. I've watched them nose it out of the tree several times.

I use Code Blue doe esturs on a wick and have game camera pics with their nose on the wick. Code Blue works for me.

I wouldn't call it controversial...
I've used it and haven't killed a buck (or doe) since 2015....this season is looking to be the best in years according to my traik camera.

The original Tinks attracted bucks of all sizes like a magnet. I had numerous buck that followed my drag rag trail for more than 100 yds with their nose to the ground grunting all the way. One numerous occasions I had Bucks standing down wind of my scent canisters performing flehmen lip curls then walk straight to the canister for a long sniff. I shot many bucks during archery season with their nose still in contact with the canister.

When the company was sold by Tink Nathan the quality began to deteriorate.

I’ve tried a variety of doe in estrus scents over the years but none worked as well as the original Tinks.
