Tips on Attracting Deer

by Wade Middleton

Whitetail hunters are always looking for ways to attract deer into their area. In this article, we’ll take a look at a few ways you can entice deer and we’ll start off with scent control and attractants.

Cover Scents

When we start talkin’ about scent control, and attractants, basically, those are two topics that really get people interested and they gravitate towards ’em. What’s real, what not? And how do they work? And why do they work? In my opinion, both of those play a huge role in certain situations in your hunting scenarios. Me, personally, you know, clothing is gonna be the first thing. Trying to use a good quality hunting garment that can keep some of that scent in would be a way to do it but using different types of devices, using different types of products out there are gonna be key.

For me, the Scent Stick, that’s what I like to deploy. A lot of different cover scents. The EverCalm is one of my favorites from ConQuest Scents. You can get it in liquid form, you can get it in a wax form, you can put it inside the Scent Stick, can be able to deploy is next to you all the way around. And so it’s basically, whatever direction the wind’s gonna go, it’s gonna put that out there for you. Another great aspect of the ConQuest Scents EverCalm product is it comes in a solid as well that you can put on your clothes, you can put it on your boots, especially put it around the edges of your boots when you’re walking in to help eliminate leaving a scent trail. So if you don’t have a creek like we’ve got right here to sneak down, that’s a great way to concentrate on your cover scent aspects.

Deer Attractants

I like to also use attractants a lot of times. I don’t necessarily use attractants as much durin’ the early season. My main focus durin’ the early season is trying to cover a lot of scents. I don’t think that the doe in heat type products and any of the buck testosterone type things are gonna work in those September, October places where I’m typically hunting. The bucks are still together, they’re still gettin’ along, the rut hadn’t even begun to begin yet so it’s cover scents. Now, when I know they start gettin’ into that pre-rut and rut situation, that’s when I want to apply the attractants and how you apply the attractants, well, once again, some of the same methods I talked about, a scent stick, usin’ some of the different solids that you can rub on ya or a ScentFIRE product. The ScentFIRE device by ConQuest Scents has recently been released to allow hunters a variety of options to be able to, basically, remotely deploy scent-type devices out into the environment that they’re hunting in.

From an attractant standpoint, VS-1, what a great way to be able to deploy that type of a scent into the environment when the deer are rutting. You constantly can put doe in heat out there basically so any time a buck comes by or is in the area, you’ve got fresh scent goin’ out so it’s a very easy was to be able to deploy scent in a lotta different situations. We’ve been putting it into use for about a year now and the results speak for themselves as far as deer saying comfortably and calm in that area. So, scent control to me comes in a lotta different situations as well as the attractants.

ScentFIRE: The New Way to Disperse Scent

One of Conquest Scents‘ newest products to up your scent control game is the all-new ScentFIRE. The ScentFIRE heats scent liquid turning it into a vapor which then dispenses periodically into the air… that scent vapor, like the aroma of cooking foods, is much stronger and more likely to reach distant deer, especially when continuously dispersed.

HOW IT WORKS:

1. FIRE IT UP

Screw scent cartridge into the ScentFIRE chamber where the scent is heated into a vapor. ScentFIRE quickly heats liquid scent turning it into a long-ranging, strong-smelling vapor. The ScentFIRE vaporizer takes pre-filled cartridges of EverCalm, VS-1, or RuttingBuck that each last approximately 50 hours on 3-minute mode.

2. FIRE IT OFF

Position ScentFIRE in a strategic position. The Scent Fire can be placed on the ground, screwed into a tree, placed on a small tripod, or mounted on a telescopic pole to increase scent dispersal. It will automatically dispense scent every 90 seconds (adjustable), or use it manually via the remote control (included). ScentFIRE uses three AA batteries (not included) and operates approx. 40 hours on 3-minute mode.

3. FIRE ‘EM UP

Long-lasting, strong-smelling scent vapors travel great distances to entice deer. There are 3 dispersal modes: 3 min, 1 min, and standby; it can also be fired off manually.
