I guess I would say I am on the fence about this one. After reading some of your posts by people who swear by it, kinda makes me want to try it. I have always been a bottle guy but now am wondering if it is necessary to haul something else into the woods. Think I will let it fly in the early part of the year once or twice and see how it goes. Best way to find out is to test it.
I spend a lot of time in the stand . I used to carry a bottle with me until I read an article about it years ago . The Nuge said the 1st thing he did when he got in the stand was to take a whizz !
I never used a bottle after that . I pee from the stand and also in scrapes .
Here is a pic of a button buck at the base of my ladderstand at less than an hour after I pee'd out of it .

Boonie: A couple of points.
1. How do you know it wasn't YOUR scent from your boots, or whatever, and not the urine? And how long was it from when you did put your urine there and they came by? If it was more than a few hours, then the urine had already broken down into urea.
2. How do you know that those deer that haven't returned didn't see/hear YOU going back and forth, "several times a day"? Any daylight travel that you make in and out of deer cover alerts them to you, especially in an area that doesn't see much human activity.
I know you now have an opinion, and that's fine, but there's just too many of us whose experiences don't bear that out. Try this...when scraping activity begins, try urinating in a scrape and see what happens. I've just killed too many big bucks and older deer letting fly when the need strikes for it to be a fluke.
IMO, it wasn't the urine per se, but your activity putting it there. And conversely, I can say that if you're the kind of hunters who goes in and out of his hunting area several times a day, KEEP DOING IT! Those of us that stay out all day will love you for it! [:D] [;)]
