I learned the best way with a tarsal scent seems to be tying a coton soak to a boot strap.
(I use tampons, it's odd but they are a lot cheaper than the others and they always are in the house (careful, women get real mad if you use the last one!)
I walk to the area I wish to hunt and make a 40 yard circle around the area.
Then I draw a sapling in the best shot area about ten foot high and tie it as high as possible, they will get the scent but not find it.
This encourages them the time it takes to follow the scent and not find the competition.
I have had bucks circle me almost two whole revolutions and almost all of them work the area back and forth for a few.
