    This is interesting. My ex-mother in law Loved to deer hunt. She would absolutely bath herself in Brut aftershave for scent. She killed alot of deer this way! I personally saw a spike buck nose to ground and her trail all the way to her tree she was in. I think it was curiousity on the deers part. I have also heard of vanilla extract used to. Yall have any wierd scent tricks?

    I have used fresh turned earth scent. It actually smelled quite good and smelled exactly like, well, fresh plowed field.

      My cousin swears that urinating out of his tree stand doesn't bother deer. He is sixty years old and has harvest only one decent buck in forty years.
      I wonder why?

        Glad to see we got away from products that mask your scent. Deer have a sense of smell 5X the best Blood Hound. They are curious maybe that's why they followed Brut. Gary maybe your cousin can't sit still or is noisy. That would contribute to his lack of luck.

          Carl that is a possibility or maybe it is the fresh human urine smell lingering down on the ground?
          I use a Gatorade bottle when nature calls. I have many trophy mounts because of it.

          Every Professional bow hunting Guide and Outfitter wants you to use a bottle while your bow hunting in a tree stand.
          I wonder why?

            When I lived in eastern Pa., we had a lot of deer around the house, and every time I came from the roadside stand with a load of fresh produce, they would come right up to the wagon. If I came from the butcher shop they stayed away. Yes, I believe they can smell everything!

              I have a friend who claims that deer are not disturbed by hunters urinating from a tree stand unless they are standing directly under it:-)

                Gary there was a show called Dr. Deer. He set up a test using a car freshener and a mock scrape using his on urine. He video taped multiple Deer showing interest in both. I have a tendency to believe the validity of both; because of my experience and he wasn't trying to sell his urine. As far as a guide being careful where he urinates. That's just good sanitation. They are in the same stand multiple times. Who wants to climb down a wet ladder or sit in a stinky puddle. JMHO

                  My friend's father doesn't smoke but while on his deer stand fires up a Swisher Sweet cigar. He says the sweet aroma draws them in. He always kills the biggest buck every year so I guess you can't argue with success.

                    Gary - One buck in 40 years? No one is that bad of a hunter.

                    Or.....maybe your cousin isn't out there for the deer.

                      The area I hunt is heavy agricultural. Farmers are constantly either plowing, planting, swathing, baling or checking and feeding cattle. Deer are constantly in "contact" with humans, therefore, don't seem to be as affected by human odor.
                      Where I started hunting, it was quite the opposite. Deer seldom encountered humans. I've had those deer reverse and leave at the smell of my tracks.

                        Sargeo1,
                        A guy i hunt with over the years is a two pack a day cigarette smoker and has the cough to go along with it.
                        He gets a dear every year, usually a buck.
                        I have come to think they are curious of the sounds and smells.

                              Carl, the archery guides and outfitters didn't want their hunters stinking up a tree stand area. No smoking, no chewing tobacco, no throwing candy wrappers down the tree and no peeing down the tree. It was not because of a wet ladder. I was there.
                              Archery hunters need to be within thirty five yards. They need every advantage possible like being elevated in a tree stand, wearing camo, wearing face paint, shooting carbon arrows, having a great bow and a human scent free environment.
                              If you want to bow hunt the roof of a port-a-potty while smoking a butt, be my guest. Good Luck!
