I've had a few interesting interations with scent over the years, but nothing consistent or with mature bucks.
I used tarsal glands attached to a drag rag that I took from from a buck I shot the previous season. (I had them in the freezer all year). I had a spike buck following me...midday...about 30 feet behind me during the VT rifle season as I was dragging them.
One year during bow season, I was hunting private property that I had drive to. While at my truck, getting dressed, etc in the AM darkness, I decide to to use some Tinks69. As I opened the bottle and am spraying it on drag rag, I hear movement about 20 yards away in a hedgerow...and the footsteps are coming right towards me. I said to myself, "You have to be kidding." I shine my mini maglight in that direction and a spike buck is walking right toward my truck, circling downwind, broadside. He literally gets about 20 feet from me, 10 feet in front of my truck with my flashilight on him the whole time. I start flailing my arms and talking, he finally realizes he isnt going to "get any" and just walks off into the woods. I let that one go hoping he breeds his stupidity into the genepool...lol
I dont used attractant scent any longer...no luck for me...just cover scent. But I have had great success with "the can" call...they should be illegal.
