I have dabbled in scents and lures over the years, don't use them any more....I had some success with them, and some bad experiences. The net result was I didn't see that I was gaining anything from them the way I hunt so I stopped.

A lot of guys on here will say scents are a gimmick, but any decent trapper can prove the concept of using scents and lures works. There are certainly gimmicky products out there, and a lot of wrong instruction on how to use scents and lures.

Study how trappers use them if you want to experiment with them. I guarantee it is a lot more complicated than putting a dab of doe pee on your boots.

None - but doesn't mean you cant use them. Nothing would cover up my hunts so far this year. I have sweated up so bad on my first 3 hunts with long walks into the marsh that it was pouring off my head once settled in my stand. My last hunt not so bad a little cooler out. Maybe it would work on private land short walks maybe???

If you've seen Marsh Bucks, scents are what Dan would consider "magic pixie dust".

Real tarsals only and I will use them any and every chance I can. During the rut.
