Danny Snyder from West Virginia writes to ask what I think about the devices that heat up deer urine to attract bucks during the rut. He also wants to know if there is data to back up the use of these devices.
A question comes from Rick Herd from Greensburg, Pa. He asks, “Other than baiting, (illegal in some states including Pennsylvania), what methods can one use to attract deer to a hunting stand or blind?”
Ben Koerth and James Kroll know as much about the behavior of rutting whitetails as any two biologists in the country. They conducted a fascinating study looking at what scents attract deer to scrapes. What they found was amazing, and may change the way you hunt this fall!
