What is your favorite lure and how successful have they worked for you.

I have never had much luck with anything other than mock scrapes

I have seen the most results from mock scrapes as well, by a long shot.

I have had a few nice bucks come in to a scent wick with code blue doe estrous on it, so I use that every year now.

I left a camera on a scrape I made for one year. Well actually I left 2 cameras on 2 different scrapes but the one camera was stolen.

The least active and smaller scrape had 3600 pics after one year. Everything from bears to yotes and foxes. Several big bucks.

I’ve tried a few but seems that they mainly do t work. I hunt a lot of public land and they have been hit already with the entire Walmart shelf.

Best lure I have found is driving 65mph down the highway. They love that. Will come running at you.

Jokes aside, they are so thick in my area no attractants or feeders needed.

That there is funny and is the redneck way

The best scent I found is from James Valley. I used it from Texas to Canada. Works well on scrapes and decoys.

I might have to give them a shot again.
You ever use it in a mock scrape or a natural scrape ?

Mostly mock near my stand but also in a natural scrape if I come across one.

I've always just saved the rutty tarsal glands and hung them at deer leg level.

I've never had any luck with lures. I've tried them but if the deer can smell the lure, they generally can smell me as well.

I start all of my mock scrapes with my own pee. Only other thing I use is a licking branch spray.

Never had luck with anything really and I have tried many. The best thing I have found is an actual deer tarsal gland but those aren't very readily available 🙂

Lure? Beer spilled onto the ground.

Try it. Pour a case onto the ground at some spot. Setup a cam on it.

I took my boy out to younger bros property that borders a NF. Took him there for first target practice session with his first new .22 LR when he was 7yo.

Had a buncha beer cans leftover from guests bringing it over to a pool party we had. I like beer, but my body doesn't so I'm not much of a beer guy, so decided to bring it to use for reactionary targets. My boy loved it when he'd hit them and I'd exclaim that "It's peeing!". Made it super fun!

Next week I went back there for opener. Watched a Doe turn-in off the road leading there and walk down to his target gong area and sniff very intently all around where those beers spilled all over the ground. Was really curious and interested about that spot.

Smokey's makes an excellent lure to use on licking branches...whether over a scrape or as a stand alone licking branch.

In my limited experience I've had good luck with food odors... now that isn't legal everywhere but the other "estrus" odors just don't have the proven ability to lure what you are looking for in my opinion..

I’ve used beer that has been filtered through my kidneys first. Seems that it worked alright
