OK now you got me going!!   Stoney please tell me what scents we should use during the hunt like I live in the North East our hunting season starts in Mid October and runs through Jan 1. What scents should we start with and when and what should we switch to Like start in Oct with and then Nov. 10 switch to. Including any combinations and how to use them. And is there any scent sold that we should never use. I have used a lot of scents but as you have shown me I have no Idea what I'm doing. Any info you can give will be great. Thanks for all the great info so far.                 Mike

I've never hunted deer; however, I hope to be successful this coming season. Now, I have no desire to bring down a record-sized buck, as I'm in this for the meat. So, I'm looking for doe only. I'll leave the bucks for the trophy hunters out there. With that being said, do you have any tips for hunting the female of the species? ???

Gr8 post Stony Creek  O0 O0 O0 Professional or not I think you should write a book on what you know.  And Ks Sniper I will tell you what I know about does. The old Does are as smart as the trophy bucks (they have blown my cover more than once >:()and I think can sometimes be harder to kill cause they dont get rut crazed. I think does follow patterns more than bucks (like trails, feeding areas, and time of day they move). I hunt bucks in the areas that hold the most does in my area. I know you say your not a trophy hunter but when hunting an area full of does during the rut you might be surprised what you see if you dont blast the first one that comes out.  Another thing I have noticed and I dont know exactly why but I have seen does bed down by Mock scrapes that I have made. This is just my 2 cents I will let Stony fill in the details.

Stony again thank you so much for your info. I printed it up so I can refure to it during hunting season. Now when should we start to order lure from you. Would a week before we start hunting be good. Also this year I am going to try to be more selective in what deer I harvest, Last year I shot 10 deer in 3 states all seasons (bow gun  muzzleloader) but its only every couple of years that I take a nice buck. I have always taken any and all deer that give me the opertunity.. I really think by doing this and not letting a lot more of the does walk by I am hurting my chances at a nice buck. I am going to try hard but you know when I get up and that stand and a doe walks by in range sometimes its been weeks since I saw a deer and I let her have it. We don't have the amount of deer here in Ma. that you do in Pa. so when I see one its hard to let it walk.               Mike

Outstanding deer and taxidermy work you got there Stony O0 O0
To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.
