      Has any one ever used Somkey’s Preorbital Gland Lure? You’re supposed start using it to make a scrape in July. Got some on order,,,gonna give it a try. Any thoughts?

      All the semi-science of scent use smells too much like work to me. And it sure ain’t woodsmanship. I’d rather just hunt ’em. But “fun” and “work” are personal concepts, I understand. Closest I’ve come is using cow elk pee as a cover scent on boots, etc., and I’m ashamed of that only because it’s a game farm product. Think about how these scents are collected. I am determined to break that habit, but to each his own and no criticism intended, just mho. dp

      dp,
      Point noted and no offense taken. The area I’m hunting has an antler restriction of at least 5 points on one side. just trying to get an edge.

      Nope don’t use the stuff. I do use Scent Shield Ti4 Titanium Cover Scent. What made me buy it, was I was in the archery shop one day and a lady from a local dog kennel came in and bought a case of the stuff. This stuff is anti-microbal and kills all bacteria with the scent elimination. It must work cause I see plenty of deer and have had four different Black Bear walk right by me (me on the ground) and never give me a notice. As far as urine scent go, I made a mock scrape last year, just for giggles using nothing but 100% SteveMcD, and bucks and does hit it throughout the rut. So NO I don’t buy the stuff… morally I’d have a tough time justifying 10 to 50 dollars for a bottle of pee. While 3/4’s of the world goes hungry. Deer and many animals smell like we hear, they have the ability to identify many scents, we may mask some but never all.

      Steve — You should bottle your “kidney nectar” with a fancy title. like Steve’s Macho Mystery Lure, then video yourself killing a big buck over a fake scrape where you used it (a high-fenced game farm would work well for this, as it does on so many other outdoor hero product videos), and get a show on the Outhouse Channel. You’d become rich(er) and famous(er) overnight. The only downside I can see is that if demand grew sufficiently, you’d have to drink beer nonstop to keep the supply coming. 😛

      “Kidney Nectar”… LMAO!!!!

      Actually, I think most “Lures” will work early on in the pre-rut. But, quite frankly… the deer ain’t smellin’ Tink’s, and Buck Stop, and Buck Bomb and Hot Doe lure all year long. It does not take a mature buck more than a day or so to know it’s hunting season and he goes nocturnal.

      The best scent is no scent.

      I haven’t tried that scent, but I have tried other ones. Never had much luck making mock scrapes around here. July seems a tad early to start one. Last two years I have tried the scent sticks you light like incense. I like how they let you know what the wind is doing and they really leave a scent on vegetation
