Like txhunter, I have read several articles and each one basicly summed up that human urine won' t spook deer. Just in case though, when I have to pee in the woods, I dig a small hole with my heel and then cover it up with dirt when finished. -- CDH

This sounds like a good video hunt after I tag out this year. I will put all theories to the test later this season and post my results.

The Plan:
- Drink alot of fluids.
- Get the handycam ready
- take a leak around my stand
- video the deer, if any.
- find a scrape, set up the stealth cam, pee in it, and wait.

Sounds like an interesting post to me.

I always use a bottle but only last week I had forgotten to put it back after washing it and didn' t realize till it was too late[:@]. Well I didn' t want to but I didn' t plan on using this spot for a few weeks again so I went off the stand. Within a half hour a spike come walking by within 5 yds of my tree, although he was up wind and sniffing he wasn' t alarmed. He must have got a wif. Still I won' t do it again but it didn' t seem to bother him.

I' ve heard both, that it won' t bother them too much, they just smell a predator but may not be too alarmed. I know years back my Dad was going down through a clearcut and stopped to take a whiz. The odor was enough to get a buck to stand up. All the noise he made was enough to get the Buck on edge but that odor was enough to finally make him break cover. My 2 cents.

I was thinkin about this...

Most people say deer can' t tell a distinction between different types of urine...human urine smells the same to them at coon urine or something...

Some people have pee' d in scrapes and then killed deer over them...

I' ve pee' d off a stand before and still seen deer...but if a deer' s sense of smell is so much better then a humans, and we can tell the difference between, human urine smell and say...racoon or fox urine, shouldn' t deer be able to tell the difference also?

Is it that they can smell a distinct " human urine" but haven' t learned to equate the smell to danger yet?
