I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to how early in the rut stage to use doe in heat scent. I've had good luck using these scents before before but I usually never put them out untill i'm sure that that there are does coming into estrous. I was just wondering if it would hurt anything to put out these scents 2-3 weeks before the rut will be in full swing. The reason I'm asking this is because this past weekend i saw a small 4 point out in a field with 4 does. He was out there lip-currling and chasing does like the rut was in full swing but that is atleast 2 weeks away. I figured if a buck smelled the chance to get a little "action" a little early he would jump at the chance.
