Why would it take some of you to be "guarnteed" killing a monster deer in order to use,... or even go out and buy a box of tampons?
A box of around 40 tampons are $4.00 or so, scent wix are about $6.00 for around 1/2 dozen.
Has anyone ever tried one? After dipping one into a bottle of scent and removing it, it will expand and open up giving it a much larger surface area for any wind blowing over it than any scent wick sold, giving you a much better way to get your scent out into the woods. Guarnteed.
They also come with built in strings, just attach a small length of rope to it and you have a scent drag line, or hang it from a branch.
And... they a packaged seperately, so you can just throw a few into your pack and off you go.
Hey, whatever works, and you know, on Thanksgiving morning I dragged one into my hunting area with scent, and what do you know... I watched a buck follow this drag line trail for 50 yards then I stopped him at 40 with my 30-06.
It was no monster but any deer I take, to me,... is a trophy! (The picture will follow on another post, I can't get into my pictures from where I am.. traditional trip to VT. to cut down a holiday tree with family).
Now why wouldn't you use a tampon as a scent wick or dragline? It's a piece of cotton and cardboard thats used and sold for the opposite sex. Whats the problem? I'm not saying to use one thats used (although that might work to draw in deer, let me know if anyone tries that).
And yes, I have bought tampons for my wife, and I would also tell the High School girl behind the counter that I am also using them for hunting.
I got 4 beautiful girls I live with and I'm sure I'll continue to buy them in the future. Its no problem.
