I have used them for about 4 years. If the rut is on the deer will come in a heat beat. I love em won't go in the woods without em.

I have burned about five packs over the last couple of years. Mostly during the rut. I have had zero positive results. About scared a doe to death that walked in from upwind and took a sniff!!!!

I've used them off and on some with no real memorable positive results. BUT, I plan to continue using them anyway. I like to sit and watch the smoke rise. I am easy to entertain. \:\)

I have been hunting for thirty years, I have tried my share of the products on the market.. What I have learned is that there is no better product then to simply just do your home work. There is NO shortcut to shooting big deer. If you set your self up for sucess (get yourself where the deer are traveling) play the wind right ( I can't stress this enough ) and know the deer you are hunting. Then you will be succesfull. DO NOT stomp all over your hunting ground educating the deer. DO NOT hunt the same stand over and over and DO NOT hunt a stand when the wind is wrong for that location. It is simple however too many people try to take all kinds of shortcuts (including my self at times) and try out the next best thing in deer hunting. Do your scouting after the season ends and long before the next season begins. Have your stand locations pickout by june or july and then stay out of the woods. Place your trail cams in the feeding fields NOT at your stand location. The Element of surprise is your best Offense.

I haven't used the tinks sticks, but have used the ones from DeerQuest several time over the years. I have had bucks up to 3.5 come in and sniff the smoke coming out of the bucket. I haven't seen any adverse reactions from deer.

One thing about them is if it is a day without much wind where it swirls in several directions, you will end up with it blowing the smoke at you. The smoke is "oily", and you will end us with the smell on you and your equipment until it is washed.

I've tried sticks in the past but never realy understood how to use them. I'd light one pre-dawn and climb up my tree. In 30 minutes it's burned up so no attraction from then on unless you intend to climb back and forth lighting new ones. I never could get into lighting them up in my stand...something about deer fooled into thinking a doe in heat was sitting 20 feet up a tree I guess?
Anything any time could work but repeatedly working is the sign that it really works. If I fell out of my stand and landed on my head the same time a deer walked by I guess I could say that attracted them.
