A buddy of mine claims he has had more success with Trails End then any other scent.  Its a mixture and not one of those pure scents.  Has anyone else had the same experience?

I used some last season but did not notice a significant increase in deer movement or attraction to area.
God bless and happy hunting

used it last year and the only thing i know that seemed to be attracted to it were two fawns that had just dropped their spots - i put it on a key wick and hung it on a branch - they stopped and sniffed it for about 2 minutes

never had succes with Trails End.  Tink's 69 and Golden Estrus have worked wonders for me but i still like the natural fresh deer scent you can collect from harvested does and bucks.  It can get messy but there is nothing better.

I tried it once last year.  Put it on a cotton ball on a corn stalk about 20yds from my stand.  Had a 6pt and 7pt come in and smell it.  I think its more of a curiousity scent.  They just smelled it and continued on to the corn.  It definitely presented a nice shot opportunity, if they were only bigger.  Im still not sold on scents though.  I like to try to try to keep everything as scent free as possible.

I used it and never saw anything really..

tinks 69 has always been my bombshell on bucks.

Trails End #307 was  the only thing available in Dodge, so purchased a couple bottles and put in my dripper this week. Will see if any increase at the deer cam.

I have had good luck with it early in the season here, mainly during black powder season before the rut really kicks in, the largest buck I have ever taken came right to it opening day of black powder two years ago, took another smaller 8 pt in the same way last year. It is one of those things that I don't put up at every stand I hunt, but will try it early based from my experience. I have never had any luck out of any other scents I have tried.

It is no question a curiosity scent.  I wonder myself what the heck is in that bottle.

I like Tinks 69. I first used it back in 1980s. I tied a piece of Tee shirt on a limb over a scrape. At 3:00PM an 8 pt. came out of a thicket and commence to tear the tree where the Tinks was. I could hear him in the thicket for an hour before he came out. I'm sure it was the Tinks that brought him out.
