Common scents

I thought it would be interesting to hear some success storys you feel came from your use of deer scents. I myself haven't used many, but i've found Tinks 69 to work well, and have had a lil success with Vanilla Killa, and have used regular vanilla as a curiosity scent, and cover scent. What works for you, what doesn't, and what time of the season did you try it?

Re: Common scents

Don't know what you are hunting, but I think food scents (vanilla, acorn) are illegal for deer, bear, etc.

Re: Common scents

First buck with the bow 18 years ago was over Tinks 69 the only other scent I've used was Special Golden Estrus. I can't think of the maker right now. Anyway I only use scents in late October and Early November.

Re: Common scents

kirschners or buck bomb. I know the price is ridiculous for buck bombs but Ive always had activity with it. I dont blow it all off at once either. It gets used just as any other scent, just in an aerosol can.

2F for a while...

Re: Common scents

My wife owns a soy candle company, and I take some of the small ones out into the woods for deer -- both apple and vanilla candles are great deer attractors!
