[font="Verdana"][/font]You all can do whatever makes you feel good. But I will just say that I stopped carrying a pee bottle about 15 years ago, and it has made NO difference in my success. In fact, it has been in this period of time that I have killed some of the biggest bucks I've ever killed, including a B&C book buck which I killed on the ground.The first few times that I tried peeing in scrapes, I was astounded at the results I got...FAR better than with any commerical colored amonia that I just forked over $10 for. The hormones that a male human has are the same ones that a buck deer has, and when they smell a "strangers" hormones, the local bucks get riled up from wondering, "Now just who in the hell is THIS SOB????" Or at least that's my theory.
I've also had numerous encounters with deer of ALL sexes and age classes (yes...that means mature bucks), on the ground at 10 yards and less ( I no longer hunt from trees, but I wander and sit on logs and the like with a ghillie suit, letting fly whenever the ugre strikes me(....and at 57 years old, that's VERY frequently, believe me!), and if I don't shoot, then they leave the area unaware of me.
I base what I do on 45 years in the woods, and personal experiences. Do as you will.
