Doe Pee ??

5 posts in this topic

I use golden estrus or Tinks #69. My question is how many of you have had the scent accually Scare the doe's away?

Over the years i have seen them get spooked from the scent and take off. I dont like to see this because of course the Buck will follow if he is around. I would like to read some of your tactics on laying down scent and if you have seen them spooked by estrus scent.

good luck this weekend looks like weather will be good for a day in the stand.

Thanks

I tend to shy away from true estrus scents if I'm interested in taking a doe. For that reason, I use Trails End #309. I think there's enough attractant in there that isn't just estrus to keep does around. The worst reaction i've had from does near the #309 is some puzzled looks. Never spooking.

I've found that on public land it can do more damage than good. I have had bucks and does take off as soon as they get a whiff of my wicks. It was enough to get me to stop on public land. On private land with minimal hunting pressure it's been very successful. I believe it depends on how much pressure the deer have had on them. The more people that use it and spook a deer the more educated they become.

I have not had them spook off but now I collect the pee right from the deer once I shoot it and collect it in a water bottle. One for does and one for bucks. Works well for me the last few years. Gun deer mostly but it has not spooked anything.

I use Golden esterus scent and have had does walk by at ten yards of a scent wick without scaring them.

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
