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.

Product Details
The most efficient and convenient way to disperse scent today. Simply remove cap and pull up wick. Now with Reflective Strip.

Use as yardage markers
Also use as a trail marker
Works with all cover scents & lures
Hangs in a tree to put more scent
in the air

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.
