I have been making lures for awhile but I must admit that what I really know is what I was taught. I will say that in my experience, a good food lure is deadly for the majority of the season.
I have three that work very well for me and it's my belief that (like a fly fisherman) you should match the hatch... so to speak.

If you are hunting an area that has no apples for miles around, then dont use apples because you will scare more away then you will attract. Those that you do attract will be very wary most times and nobody wants that.

Look at your area and then choose the lure that matches the food source.

I've started using EverCalm within the last two seasons and for now it's all I will use. It cost more than most scents I have bought in the past at around 20 bucks but it will last me all season just about and it comes in deodorant stick form. Just wanted to see if anyone else has had luck using it. It works great for me.

I just like to try and smell like nothing. That seems to be what I have the most luck with Cool

I agree madeforthewoods. After everything we do to be sent free. Why add artificial sent?

I kinda laugh when I hear people say they use the earth scented stuff for a cover scent. For one thing, I don't think deer are used to smelling such a strong dirt scent in the woods. And two, with a nose that much more powerful than ours I gotta believe deer can tell the difference between the fabricated stuff and real dirt, acorn, urine, etc. Just my two cents...

Yeah I'm not much for scents other than the one listed above. I've had several deer come right up to where I put it out and smell and lick it within 30 minutes of me putting it out so there must be something they like about it. Other than that I do the same and try to have no scent possible. How do you guys store your clothes DURING season.

Do yall use scent lok soaps even when you're not hunting? I'm thinking about just using it all season as if it were any regular shampoo or soap.

Yes absolutely, unscented soap the entire time. And unscented laundry soap for all laundry (towels, socks, undies, etc) you should check out my forum post about "things we may forget when trying to be scent free" lots of good info from members.

Thought I'd try cutting the tarsals off the 8pt I shot because they had a lot of scent to them. I hung them up in a different woods I hunt that is 30 miles away from where I shot him. But I had no real luck with it tho. I only saw a spike and he didn't even seem to notice the smell of it, even when he was directly downwind of it. I don't think I'l bother with it again.
