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