Funny thing that happened today but it wasn't really funny. I had some Tink's Trophy Scent Lure which I don't normally use in addition to some Hunter's Specialties 180 (trying to catch the early bird, I mean 'buck'). Had a doe come in within 10 yards and then suddenly stopped, looked at where the scent dispensers were, put her nose up to smell and took off the other way. Do does not like the buck lure scent? I never had a shot as she stayed behind some tree branches.

I have never had any luck using buck lure in liquid or gel form.Even if she was in heat I am sure she would be alarmed. I do carry doe urine in spray form if I jump something on the way in. In theory they circle back to see what jumped them.It worked years ago when I walked along a fence line and jumped something from the pines.I got up into my stand and shortly after 6 pointer came in looking.He was one of my first opening day deer.

I could see using a cover scent but a lot of them will turn a buck around real quick.You should do research with actual hunters like you are doing to see which ones are better quality...avoid the cheapest junk. I personally don,t use them..rattle and grunt some ...find the right trails and put in some time....good luck
