    Have any of you tried those sent sticks in the first part of the season.
    If so ... do you like them , do they work and would you use them again?

    Out of every person I know that has tried them, not even one has a good thing to say about positive results. That's all I know.......:D:p

    We used to sell a lot of them too at the shop I used to work for...........

    Yes, I tried them, and would not recommend them at all.

    At first, it was fine, just like any other incense...

    But within a half-hour, my whole house smelled like #%!&.

    My wife was pretty pissed, so I'm not allowed to buy any more of those.

    There are far better things to smoke than those.

    I have heard of these and also some scented candles that are out now. I'm not sure what kind of scents they have but.............. Smokey the Bear would be rolling over in his grave. I can't imagine anything that requires being set "a-blaze" attracting a whitetail. Of course I am just assuming things, I have never used these products.

    Never had any luck with them. But consider this.... using scent on a drag rag to lead a buck to your set up makes a lot more sense, you can lead him in from up-wind of you. Any scent that you hang from a branch or from those punks is going downwind of your location, as is your scent. Using scent attractants in this manner goes against "hunting the wind" (IMHO)
