The Fitzgeralds sell this product and promote it as a cover scent: it is supposed to make you smell like a deer. I don't know how effective it is as a cover scent, but I often spray some on my boots when I walk to my stand. Last year three yearlings followed my footsteps directly to my ladder stand (two of them were even sniffing the ladder rungs) while a 6-point came across my trail, stopped like he was hit by a 2 X 4, then slowly began to follow my footsteps.

i bought and used the deer dander some years back and was never winded more in one season than when i used it. threw it away and have had much better success than when i used it. the only cover scents i use are primetime doe-p and during the rut i also use code blue estrous

I think I will leave the deer dander alone. This might sound crazy, but it puts me into anaphylatic shock. You should see how I dress out to clean a deer.

Wow! A hunter who's alergic to deer. That stinks. I've used the deer dander. I think its a decent cover scent. I used to spray some on my boots and never noticed deer spooking near me.

I am slightly allergic to them,but not as bad as you. If I touch my face after cleaning them or skinning them I will itch like crazy for a while and will start sneezing so I have to be careful while handling them. But I know 2 different guys who have to wear doctor like face masks and long elbow length gloves and a full length plastic apron when they skin them or they will break out with hives and have trouble breathing. The one guy says that he can tell where deer have been recently in the woods because he is so sensitive to it.

Thumbs up

I've used Deer Danderô for years and love it. It's hands down the best cover scent I've ever used, and it really does work as a curiosity lure as they advertise. I've had a young buck walk directly toward me from a bedding area twenty yards away, with the wind in his favor, and sniff my ASAT clad ass as I sat waiting for a deer to come by. He didn't know what I was, didn't act threatened in any way, and only bolted when I turned to look at him to make sure it wasn't a dog.

Default Would like to give it a try, but...

I too am allergic to deer and will itch like hell and eventually go to anaphylaxis if I don't pounda handfull of Benedryls. Is this stuff actually made from deer fur?
