    what is the proper application/use of the doe in heat dripper or products like the Code Blue grave digger? I understand you want to use them for the rut but that is about all. I have never used them before but I was thinking about it this coming hunting season.

    I am not an expert in scent usage, I use them all during the season. There are late does after the general rut, so I would not worry about overusing it. I use the code blue electric and use a variety of scents in it-including doe in heat. I also use some scrape scent and earth scent for myself. My ATV is left 200yds from my stand so i use a drag from there to my stand.

      If I use a drag I make a semicircle around my stand assuming the deer will come in right on it or down wind. The older smarter bucks sometimes come in 100yards down wind unless a terrain feature is in the way. I have had some bucks come in right on the trail during the chase phase and seen others at a distance down wind. I am no expert though and scents certainly don't work often but when they do its exciting. I use tinks 69 and code blue.
