Late Season Archery, Scents?

Postby teej79 » Mon Dec 27, 2010 11:18 am

I am very conscious about my scents, washing my clothes with scentblocker, scent blocker deoderant, and so on and so forth and of course, playing the wind.  I have never used attractants nor hunted late season, but this year I figured I'd save a doe tag just for winter archery, I know some may think thats ridiculous because of the cold but I want the challenge.  My question is should I use any attractant scents? Food? Doe urine?

Well obviously you can't use food as bait in PA but, while the other choices may not hurt, IMHO they would really be a waste of good money in late season archery. The deer have been hunted hard and they know it and I've never had much luck with late season attractant scents. In late season it's often best to hunt the left over food sources after all the mast is gone. Such as fields, shrubs, grasses, and other ground browse. This especially works with snow cover.
