I've tried a lot of stuff and almost all of it has no effect. The only thing that I've ever gotten results from is the buck fever synthetics forehead glad. The earlier in the season you use it the better.

A billion dollar industry and a sucker born every minute.

Save your money and look for mother natures scent. IMO.   Find a doe and count the bucks following her.

 :yeah: plus a whitetail doe in estrus will bed down in the most random and visible places

I've saved tarsal glands from young bucks and have definitely had positive results but it's kind of a hassle.
