Hey guys-new to this forum and it looks pretty good. I have a question. This is going to be my first year hunting out of a stand and I have picked up tinks #69 and Special Golden Estrus-buck lures. What is the best way to implement these in my hunt-I have a velcro pad I'm going to put some scent on then wrap around my ankle-to leavea trail to my stand then soak a wick and hang it near my stand-Does this sound accurate? How do you use scents?

i hang it up wind of a trail (not to far away) and hope a buck comes by and stops to wind it.sometimes they go right up to the scent wick but other times, depending on terrain and amout of vegetation there is down wind of the scent wick, they'll just move down wind of it. the scent drag is a good idea. they sometimes fallow it right to your feet. the higher u hang it in the tree usually the farther the scent will carry. i'll bend over saplings and hang wicks 8-10 feet high with a couple chest high. the other day i used scent around a scrape but the buck i saw was like fifty yards down wind on another trail. he winded the scent and went back the way he was coming and that was the last i saw of him. scent will get them to stop but after that they tend to do wierd things sometimes. I hunt public land so i think after a while deer smarten up and don't always believe what they smell! good luck.
