I use HAWGS SCENTS, I never had deer spook, they seem to be relax when they smell it. I followed the directions to a "T" and it has been working for me for the past few years.

I think here in Jersey scent is not as big a factor as in the big woods in other states. Jersey deer are used to smelling people probably on a daily basis. I do use a carbon scent blocker on my outer clothes. I also use deer in rut scents to try and attract them. Tinks69 and others.

I know a few who smoke. Many have been successful. The ones who score keep the wind in their favor. Rushcreek deer lure works well. Straight doe as a cover and doe in heat during the rut.

My old man!!!!!! His first deer was a 275lb. 10 point from maine. He was 16 and his older brothers didn't want to bring him but were forced by my grandfather! Anyway he had no clue where to hunt and his brothers didn't help him so he found an old mining shed to sit next to where he could see pretty good into the open woods. Not being into the whole hunting thing he was smoking like crazy and had just taken a dump when out of nowhere walks up this monster 10 point. He shot this deer at about 35 yards with a cancer stick in his mouth!!!!!!! Go figure!!!

I hunt right along the fence line of route 80. The exhaust fumes are my cover scent. The noise also masks my noise.

Not big on them . I tried a few with no luck .

A guy I know on the net makes his own Human Urine mixed with ammonia . 80-85% urine to 15-20% ammonia and a touch of Purreed apple and aged for about 1 week in a Open container...

He is also a cam builder like my self and uses it on mock scrapes . If you seen the buck pictures he has it would blow your mind .
