Maybe for some... i think some are a complete waste of money, but i believe in hunting the wind but cover scents and code blue or buck bomb does work I've seen it over and over again. Not every single time but you will not catch me out hunting in November without scents. I have not seen anything scientifically proving that they do not work. But i haven't searched it to much.

The whitetail nose is too complex to be deceived by cover scents. You can not mask human scent with another, more powerful smell as their noses simply do not work that way. Think about a pot of 15 bean soup. You look at it and you are easily able to recognize all the different beans by sight: Garbonzo beans, Navy beans, Pinto beans etc all look different. A whitetail's nose works in a similar manner.

As for the product attracting deer, no doubt deer get attracted to it and get killed because of it, BUT this isn't a "it worked on time on a deer therefore it works on all deer" scenario. Pressure can be a HUGE factor in this. Furthermore, mature deer will often not be fooled by it, so, depending on the amount of pressure and your hunting goals, you may be doing more harm than good. All forms of attractants, calls and rattling etc should be considered within that same context.
It doesn't have to be fun to be fun.

Wild & crazy, can't be stopped. Only the strong will survive.

Keep your knife sharp and your skillet greasy.

I never stated that it works all the time and i agree with you about pressure and other factors. I can see where your going with the cover scents, but it can't hurt i don't believe. By cover scents i mean scent Eliminators. But i do believe in scents but as i said before they aren't magic, and don't work all the time. They must be used right to be effective.

Had a young buck on a Ft Campbell Youth Hunt come in on a string after we used a drag line and some Code Blue. He would walk with his nose to the ground, stop, look right at us and continue with his nose to the ground.

I've had luck using BuckBomb several times. This morning I'd pulled a drag on my way in. Then when I relocated I ended up with 4 deer downwind at 25 yards without any reaction from them at all and I was on the ground. Nobody can tell me it doesn't work sometimes. I'm not going to argue the science of a deer's olfactory organ sensitivity ratio because I have no idea the specifics of that whole scenario. I'd say only the deer really know those details.
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.

Just this season I have used scents on 8 hunts and attracted deer to the scent on 4.Thats 50% just this season.Scents work often enough for me that I hardly ever hunt without them. And for the people that say they dont work,Dont worry about changing there mind because there mind is already made up.They use scents 1 or 2 times dump it on the ground and wonderd why it didnt work. It takes a little luck to get that scent to a deers nose but when it does I have noticed odds are very good that a deer will investigate.I have never seen doe in estrus scents spook a buck [That I could see].

I used to buy all three just to see which one they would come to. Never had luck with any of these although friends swear by buck bomb. Try to get some real farm raised doe urine. Its kinda a pain to deal with because you got to keep it in the fridge or it says 50 degrees and below. I can honestly say that I have brought bucks in on a string with this stuff. The first time I used it I was hunting on the ground and 2.5 year old came in hard and had him at 10 feet. I didnt want to kill him but made me real nervous. He stood there and looked at me and kept easing up. I waved my gun and hollered and he just stood there. But I have told my friends that when all the variables come together, I have had luck with younger bucks, but I will say this many many many of times when does wind it, it makes them mega nervous and mature does will roll out. In my opinion if you know where the does are, just hunt the does, but if you are not sure where they are or where they come from then try it. Be careful with it though the last thing you want to do right now is run your does off.

I wouldnt use any of the 3 in early season I learned my lesson the hard way there but i was trying something new. Once the rut is on I would use any of the 3 but I use it with the miss november decoy . I have had alot of success during rut and late season with it . Just my 2 cents it might work on one farm you hunt and not another
