Is this just a wives tale or have you heard of using a used tampon in any way to attract deer? I think if anything the deer would come out of curiosity? What do you all think? Sorry for the graphic nature but i just had to ask!
Id say any good Mr and Mrs Deer Hunter would be willing to understand the reality of a menstrating woman potientally drawing in a big buck.. I feel using a little common sense about the matter may the key here! ( meaning his wife must be CURRENTLY menstrating so blood is very fresh, ofcourse). Man shouldnt carry old tampons around. No man or deer are gonna messing around lookin for a good thrill sniffin a rank/ransid old tampon.

After the end of the hunting season, do you throw your microwave away?

Most of the males here are old enough to have had sex and many have kids so most have been to the same place the tampon came from and we all have had blood on our hands so what's sooooo bad about a tampon? I don't get it.

I have heard of this trick several times by several different people and all say that it does work.
This is the smartest reply on this subject yet. TRUDAT!!!

Well bigbulls it is a disgusting thing to do and totally unnecessary to kill a buck. I do not drag trash into the woods. It has more to do with common sense and intelligence than being a sissy. I hear about that practice 50 years ago, I believed it was disgusting then and I still do, and I suspect there is a lot more talking about it than doing it. I would be careful who you are calling a sissy boy, at least to their face, when you are not protected by being anonymous on a computer.
