he managed to scent her 3 1/2 hours after she peed. i guess the real stuff works. [/rquote]
The nose of a Whitetailed deer is something special, but if you've ever spilled any doe in estrous urine on youself while laying a scent trail or filling a dripper you know that stuff is pungent and stays put until ya wash it off. Imagine how much that smell is amplified by a deer's nose!!!:cheers:
i wish the guy that broke him off would show up. i actually thought i was going to get skunked on deer sightings tonight then all at once 9 deer came into the field from three directions at 5:15. this wind must have kept them holed up until the last minute.
Anyone who has ever shot a hot doe during the rut and then stayed in their stand can probably attest to how long a buck can still smell a does trail . I have had them come in on a does trail 1/2 a day after she went thru or didn't make it thru. In the salt river bottoms in shelby county one year, I shot a doe from in front of a 6 point early opening morning,,and had 8 more differnt bucks come in between there and noon when I shot a decent 9 point. There noses are flat amazing,,and their lack of abitlity to not follow their noses when a hot doe is around is a blessing.:claphands:
