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.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?

      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!
