Best approach in my opinion is to LEAVE all human scent OUTSIDE the areas of stands , blinds and so forth.
I let fly too from the stand.:D And I’ve watched deer directly below me sniffing the wet leaves, standing in it, and casually wagging their tails, and going about their business.
I don’t purposely pee all over the woods, but when I have to go, I have to go, and I’m not keen on carrying a bottle of my own urine on my person…LOL! I’ve shot enough deer over the years, and seen enough reactions to my urine to come to the conclusion that it doesn’t bother them.
