It seems that if the deer in your area don't associate the smell of chew with danger then it won't spook them. Once they know that smell is associated with a camo blob in a tree then it will spook them. It's nice to have a dip to help pass the time. When I dip in the stand it makes me wonder if I would have seen more deer if I didn't dip that night.

I chew/dip on stand and tend to lean towards apple or peach, One onther thingI do is kick all the leaves and bring up some fresh dirt around the bottom of my tree to help cover the scent up. Last year I missed a huge buck that walked right under my stand and stopped and smelled the estrus I had out and right next to him was my spit.

I dip while in a stand and have yet to be proven that it "chases" the deer off. I have had them walk right under me and I have shot several despite the habit. Skoal Brother !

Well, I know most of you won't believe me, seeing as how I'm a girl... but I always had Grizzly mint out in the stand with me last year, and the year before that. In fact, I shot my 7 point with a dip in, he was headed straight for my stand about 30 yards out... didn't seem to bother him. Same with my button buck from last year, had a dip in, never noticed apparently, cuz he came right to me.

I am missing it soooo badly, I quit 7 months ago, the day I found out I was pregnant... this thread is killing me! I made a promise to myself that I won't start that habit again... but I am not sure I will be able to stick by it. It's so hard to be a woman who chews because it's not something I really feel comfortable doing in public, people *really* look at you funny. I'd be okay, but I don't want to embarass my hubby!

I also loved the Skoal apple, and the berry blend... oh gosh... I should *Not* come back and read this thread... I should *Not* have read it in the first place.... sitting4 hours on stand is not going to be the same without it.

I dip every time i hunt. i can't help it....I do wonder if it effects my chances, but honestly, i think it is all a matter of circumstance. I mean i can drive a field and stop deer dead in their track, and wonder why they won't move while i drive by........Or i can step on a stick in the woods, and think it has ruined my chances drastically...........either way....i will dip, but try to remain smart about it........lol

I usually dip Cope Black.. which has a strong alcohol smell to it. So I wouldnt recommend dipping that in the stand. But I hearthatkinds like berry and peachcan attract em. But, you hafta wonder if you wouldve seen that monster had you not waited till a little bit laiter to pack your lip.

Nice to know I'm not the only gal who chews.

I used to work in a big old junkyard back in Texas. Most of thetime we could practically walk up on a deer. First day of deer season would arrive and the guysfrom the big city (Houston)who leased surroundingplots from my boss would be out in full camo, scent-blocker gear, uber-weapons, shiny new 4x4's....more moola in their gear than most of us made in a year. Anyways, half of 'em never saw a deer throughout the season, despite spying on 'em all year with their cameras and what not. Yet we'd stillbe walkin' up on 'em in the junkyard. Our running joke was all you needed to stock the freezer was greasy flannel, a pack of Camels, and a cuttin' torch.
