I second what Woods Walker said.    You got what the bucks want.  I used to ask my first wife for . . . well, you know.  She absolutely wouldn't.

As much as I don't like it, seems that everyone has had "results" using thier own urine. It must be a territorial deal to the deer. I might try human urine unwillingly this year in a mock scrape, but I'm not chewwing the over hanging limb, I will draw the line there.[:D]

Don't know if this matters but when I first read about doing this the author stressed only to do so in freshly turned dirt. Not on leaves or other stuff.

Yeah, but you gotta be REAL careful when you rub the branch with your pre-orbital gland. I scratched a cornea last year doing that, and it didn't heal up until after Christmas!!!!

this topic has stirred some pretty heated debates on these boards and even some name callin. but i swear on my fathers grave that it works. i quit carring a pee bottle 10 years ago. i actually had a mature doe eat the leaves off a tree i had peed on earlier. i was skeptical for a long time but a hunting buddy whos word i trust got me to try it and im glad he did. thats my experience.

Serious as a heart attack!  I did like you are now doing for 20 years before I started just "letting fly" when the urge hit. It's been 10 years now.
 
10 years of no pee-bottles, floating eyeballs, or the delicate chore of hitting the opening in the pee-bottle while wearing 4 layers of clothes, while accounting for "shrinkage"!  [:o]
 
In fact, one time during gun season when I was 18 feet up in a tree on a DRY, CALM day, I let fly in the leaves....the sound echoing through the woods....and not 10 seconds after I finished the chore, a REAL nice 11 pointer that weighed in at around 270 pounds came right on by!
 
Now I can't prove it, but I wouldn't argue against the idea that he HEARD that sound, and was coming in to see if it was a "hot date", as it WAS during the rut, and he was "looking" when I saw him.
 
We are not kidding. It CAN work, I've NEVER seen a deer spook from it when I was on stand, and I have personally have had them hit a scrape that I "freshened". 
 
Try it. The sheer sense of FREEDOM that it gives you is priceless!
