SHKY, I believe it is a debate - two sides, pros and cons, believers and non believers [8|]. Heck, your friend with rightguard, that'd be a debate itself. I too had a person that I hunted with for only to occations and never more. Peed anywhere and smelled like a perfume isle. He was killing me and our chances at anything [:@]. He was complaining about never harvesting an animal and considering quitting. I wonder why!!
With all the feedback there is, especially WW's thinking and alleged experiences, I too am willing to try something new. Next season, I will tinkle on two of my favorite spots, and not on the others. Curious to see what happens. I LOVE HUNTING and respect all's opinions on this topic!!!!
What I meant by "not really a debate issue" is, no matter what someone else on this forum tells you, you aren't going to throw all caution into the wind and just pee all over the woods. The ones that do use a bottle will probably still continue to do so, regardless of who told them they didn't need to. I'm not doubting that others have had success while peeing all over their stand sites, but I have seen stranger things happen. If you are content seeing young immature deer that are curious because they don't know any better, then do what you will. I consistently kill mature bucks every year using a bottle. Until I see proof with my own eyes that it doesn't matter, I will continue to do so. If it doesn't show to have an attraction factor, I will continue to use a bottle. I also have come to respect Woods' opinion and believe he believes in what he is saying, but take into account, he is a stalker/still hunter. He isn't setting in one spot that he has dumped the remains of his used morning coffee. He is making things happen in the woods, not waiting on things to happen around where he sits.
My sniffer isn't anywhere as good as a deer's and I can tell the difference in cat urine, dog urine and even my own urine for that matter. Unless the deer tell me other wise, I will believe that they can too x100! I am intrigued by this enough to experiment with it and that is as far as I will go right now. That is why I say it is not really a debate issue, it's more of a speaking of ones opinion.
