    Default Estrus Scents

    What are good brands of doe estrus scents that I should have with me for hunting the pre rut in Ill. How would you guys suggest putting them out, ie wicks, scent bombs. Thanks for the help.

    I use the Code Blue Doe Estrous. I buy one bottle and split it up in these three Tinks Scent Bombs. I hang them nose high down wind usually if wind blowing. If not I place them on all three sides. I also often walking in use a Q-tip and swapp branchs to my stand with the doe estrous. I buy several bottles of it ever year. Seems to work if the bucks are on the move and looking. I also have a good grunt call never be bowhunting without a grunt call. You see a buck in the rut you grunt sftly at him and more aggresive if he walking away.

    Scent Bombs, I have never had any success with Tinks doe estrus.

    I never touch the scent bombs with my hands. I place them in a plastic bag and have another bag for my hand to open the bottle. I never leave the scent bombs out, always pick them up.

    I also like code blue. I use a wick and drag a figure 8 around my stand with my stand being in the middle of the 8. I extend the two hoops of the 8 about 100 yards to either side of my stand.
