"My thought prosses was that if I pee in the middle of the clear cut I want to hunt that maybe the dear would keep there distance from that point..."

So if you don't want the spouse hunting...

I try not to do it but one time i pooped on the side of a logging road BT hunting with my bow and i saw a few doe on the way back hanging less then 5 yards from my poop.  But i think that was a freak situation.

I try to pee on rocks. If your scouting for mountain goats it's probably the best thing you can do to up your odds of seeing them. Not to mention they will dig BIG willows trying to find more.
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

I think there were a couple of studies in the Midwest on whether deer would stay away from a mock scrape with human pee sprayed on it.  The bucks showed no difference in marking those scrapes compared to real scrapes.  Apparently, as noted above, they don't freak out about human urine.

That begs the question, why spend $6 a bottle for buck or elk urine to spray on yourself when you can just piss your pants before you hit the woods?   :chuckle:

I have had blacktails, shy from an apple that I had picked up and tossed to what I thought was a better spot, but I've never had one even show the least concern over a spot I took a leak at and that includes mature bucks.  They either seem attracted to it or they just don't care.

A friend of mine guides elk in MT. He turns 80 today. He says human pee has no negative effect on deer or elk.  :dunno:

I forgot to add that I've seen many reports of guys peeing off their tree stands during the rut only to have a buck come running in while the hunter still has his pants open.  Apparently the splashy noise makes them think there is another deer close by.  Whether they are looking to fight or hoping to breed - I have no idea.

We have used it to "bait" deer into our fishing camp during the summer. We learned to do it further from the tents so they don't keep us awake all night.
