Pre rut scents
« on: September 14, 2008, 03:53:01 PM »
We are no where from what I can see near the rut yet...no new scrapes or rubs.  I purchased one of the Moultrie drippers and was wondering if its even worth putting out yet.  And if it is, whats a good scent to use during the pre-rut?  Suggestions?

I asked this under a different topic but am really interested to get an answer.  You'll find two photos of two bucks I just entered under the trailcam section.  I took these where I felt another stand might be good.  Is it wise to set up a scrape right near by to keep these two boys close?  And again, back to my original question...with this still basically the pre-rut, whats good to use now?  I've always liked the Blue Moon estrus but is that an overkill already?

Code blue buck urine is a great pre and post rut scent to use. Tinks #1 doe pee is also a good pre and post rut scent.
God bless and happy hunting

wvwhitetail some times in life you have to make sacrifices, this weekend when you and misses go grocery shopping and when she starts loading the buggy up with lots of unnecessary items (baby food etc..) just put enough of these items back on the shelf while shes not looking to cover high quality deer urine. Why I've put enough junk back on the shelf and actually had enough money left over for a cheap 12 pack and deer pee!

Knight and Hale sells a large bottle of doe urine for about the same price of a small bottle of doe pee. I've seen fawn drop in Mid May in our area, but the peak of the rut is Dec. 29th, which means the fawns from that period would drop in mid July, so the does were breed early November, two months earlier. I don't know if this is common in all areas, but that puts our breeding possibilities in a four month or more spread. So, it may not be to early to put your dripper out.
