I bow hunt only and only use Tinks products. But like everything the scents are seasonal. If the deer are not rutting, really rutting, don't use Tinks 69. I have had does blow to high heaven and bucks run like Obama from a Klan mamber when I used 69 prior to the rut. Before and after the rut I use Tinks #1 doe pee. Also like previously stated, don't use to much. All I use is a drag rag. I cover the rag with urine and walk to my stand, leaving the rag 20 or so yards away from the tree I'm hunting. With both scents, when used properly, deer always come straight to the scents.
I never make mock scrapes or poor the urine on the ground. In previous test, the deer avoid those areas all together. As I mentioned before, I only bow hunt and usually kill two -three deer a year. The only reason I take 2-3 is that's all my wife and I can eat. There are plenty more opportunities.
I've been hunting this way for three years now with great success. Tinks is always in my pack.
