I have never used any type of estrus scent while hunting. I was curious if it would help stop a cruising buck. I have had bucks on the move within range recently and wondered if it would help or hinder. I tried to stop a dandy with a couple mouth grunts and he could have cared less. They are on the real thing right now so I am also afraid of spooking other does that otherwise would bring a buck in on their own. I guess I have always thought the more natural the better. Any thoughts and ideas would be appreciated. God bless and safe hunting.
