Default SHARE YOUR SCENT SECRETS HERE!

Hey guys, I thought it would be nice for eveyone to share how they use doe and buck scents in the woods to attract deer. I myself have never really used anything but a little tinks gel. I have got a couple new stand siets that I have to walk a good ways to and have considered maybe trying a drag of some sort on my way. Is there any way to make a homade drag? Should I use esterous or urine? Buck or doe? Or, is there a better way to leave doe scent on a trail than a drag? Help me out ya'll- Thanks.

Like timber said except I am on the ground..lol.

I have used scents but not in the traditional sense..make sense or scents (huh)! Ok I use scents when I rattle, b/c I pick areas very close to bucks bedrooms or deep transition in which I like to rattle. I set up with the wind blowing from the deer to me and place scents in likely areas half moon the up wind side. In some cases I add one directly behind me if I know deer will come or cirlce to that direction, but that is last resort. I generally stick to some sort of hot doe but have also used synthetic BF gland formulas with similar results, the whole point is to distract them from me or my possible scent. While not foolproof as with any method it has bought me several opportunities to judge or shoot deer in the past. I vary the height from licking branch height with BF down to 18" off the ground. For hot doe I wil run 18 to 36"max. I use unscent OB tampons (steal from the wife..hehe) and always remove them following my hunt. In most cases I set up mid day 10-3 to rattle and use scents.

The rest of the time I stick to wind and deep transitions with no notion I exist!
