Unconventional Deer Lures For Bowhunters

Unconventional Deer Lures For Bowhunters

Deer lures are almost a must for luring in that big Trophy.

Code Blue's Whitetail Estrous Urine Gel ($14.99) won't wash away or freeze as quickly as liquid scents, so you can apply it to wicks or foliage before dawn and hunt over it with confidence until after sunset. The 2-oz. bottle of gel contains urine taken from a single doe in heat, and the bottle has a registration number that corresponds with the doe it was collected from. Code Blue also offers Buck Urine Gel and Tarsal Gland Gel (Code Blue, 251/4089, www.codebluescents.com).

Hunter's Specialties' Sex Scent Wafers ($8.99), available in BucRut and Doe Estrus, are solid plastic dispensers containing pure, concentrated whitetail breeding scents. They're sold in packs of three wafers. You can pin the wafers to your clothing or hang them wherever you want to draw deer. To revitalize the scent, snap the wafers together and store them in the included container (Hunter's Specialties, 319/395-0321, www.hunterspec.com).

Primos' TRUTH Serum DEER DROPiN's ($12.99) look like what the name suggests. Each biodegradable pellet contains a blend of TRUTH Serum Estrus Doe and Buck Urines. Pour 20-30 of the "lookalikes" on an active natural or mock scrape, and they will keep the scrape smelling fresh for 30-45 days. Rain and moisture rejuvenate and strengthen the scent (Primos Hunting Calls, 1-800-523-2395, www.primos.com).
