Re: evercalm or deer dander

I use deer dander. Last night a young doe snuck up behind and and seemed interested by the deer dander i had put on a couple limbs. She kept looking around and even looked up at me in my tree stand. She never spooked and was totally calm. My guess is she smelled fresh human scent but it was mixed with the deer dander. Seems to work

I am convinced that Deer Dander makes a difference.

Re: evercalm or deer dander

I've used both, as far as evercalm it seems to really have a calming effect on young deer. I've had them come in and bed down right under my stand a few times.

Deer Dander I can't really say it's good or bad. I have no evidence of it helping or hurting. I only used it for one season though.

Re: evercalm or deer dander

I use the deer dander on my dekes, works well! I like Buck Butter better than Evercalm. Just my personal preference.

16/17 deer season:

Wet butt so far

Re: evercalm or deer dander

I used Evercalm the last two years with very positive results. It definitely made a difference in both the tree stand and the ground blind. One doe that I tagged had initially gotten spooked when I drew back on her, and she started to run but stopped dead and walked back to sniff where I had rubbed it onto a tree.
