Using a scent dripper?

3 posts in this topic

I have had a lot of luck bringing in deer to mock scrapes for trail camera purposes, but never hunting. They are all at night for the most part, or little guys in the day. Have any of you had luck with MATURE bucks using a scent dripper?

I bought one and im wondering where to put it, how soon, does hunting after rain or snow seem better? Just wondering if others have had some luck?

I put up two scrape drippers about 3 weeks ago so the sooner the better I'd say. The bucks are already interested in the does so get out and make yourself a mock scrape and hang that bad boy over it! I've got some deer coming to my mock scrapes and I've also had a real scrape that is about 15 yards from my mock get ripped up along with some trees getting shredded. Last week I was on my way out to hunt by my mock scrapes and I called my friend on the way and he said I should have been there an hour ago. Seems there was a 10 pointer there checking my mock out at 2:30 in the afternoon. mad.gif Just like everything else timing is everything!

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
