1. Professional trappers know quality scents. I don't know of any who buy their lures and scents at Wal-Mart. I also suggest you shy away from mass produced, poor quality, discount-chain-sold buck scents.
2. Estrus scents will attract bucks prior to the peak of the rut. Bucks are interested and will respond during the pre-rut - The peak of the pre-rut is the best time to use deer attractants.
3. I feel straight doe deer urine (non-estrus) is the poorest deer scent you can use to attract bucks. I have found it gives a "so what" response in the many years of research that I have done. Regular, non-estrus doe urine is what most "heat" urine type buck lures sold today are. no wonder there is so much confusion and mixed results with hunting with scents. Straight doe urine that is labeled "heat" urine will not arouse sexual urges. False advertising and gimmicks have damaged the credibility of many scent manufacturers.
4. Our lure materials are "aging" in bulk containers during the winter and spring months. We take orders for later shipping throughout the year. If you have a delay in receiving your order during these months, please be patient.
