Helpful Hunting Hints:
Sexual attractants account for a huge portion of the scents that are sold and used. Most archery hunters invest at least a few dollars every fall in a doe-in-estrus scent. These scents are by far the most effective during the pre-rut and peak-rut times of the year. Using estrus scents outside of the stages of the rut is not a good idea, and can often send deer running the other way. They know when the big show is close.
There are more companies selling this kind of scent than any others, and there is a reason. Bucks may not want to come in to something that smells like corn, and they may not be ready to fight, but when the time of year is right they will come to a doe they believe is in estrus. No secret there.
In reality there are two different kinds of doe-in-estrus scents. The first kind is urine that was harvested from one single doe while she is in estrus, and the second kind being a collection of several does that were in estrus, all mixed together. Whether deer prefer one or the other is up for debate.
Estrus scents can be used in multiple ways, and their versatility is one of the reasons so many archery hunters find success using them. When hunting a lot of funnels and pinch points, simply hanging a scent wick upwind of deer travel lanes may be all you need to set up a chip shot. If you hunt a lot of agricultural fields, large oak flats, or overgrown pastures, dragging a rag soaked in estrus scent might be the ticket. If bucks are chasing and actively searching the first estrus does of the year, your opportunity to capitalize is huge.
At no point in the reproductive cycle is the scent of the rut stronger. Have you ever seen what happens when a buck gets downwind of another buck that's standing with a receptive doe? Some bucks turn inside out at these times in an effort to get in on the action. They obviously pick up the intensity of the situation in the scent they smell and attempt to steal the doe.
