Been pondering on different techniques and things we've tried. Growing up in Virginia, if someone in the family killed a buck, we would cut the tarsal glands off and use them during our next few hunts. Just hang them up or use as a drag going in. I was young but remember my dad, uncle, and cousin having good luck using them. Anybody else tried this?

Yes we do and It works very well, it works best when you use them on a different piece of property than where you killed the buck from.

Sure, the rut is a GREAT time to hunt if you don't know what you're doing!

I have the tarsals from my last buck in the freezer now maybe I will take em to the WMA or another place I can hunt to introduce a "new buck" to the area. Never tried it before...

do it all the time.
The problem in America is not that ungodly people have said yes to ungodly things, but rather that Godly people have refused to say "no" to ungodly things.

Exactly. The bucks in the area already know the buck that was just killed. Use tarsals from a buck "unknown" in the area.
