I have never..ever...ever...shot a deer over scent. I had just about given up on them until some provinces banned the use of them (which is usually the best indication that they work). But I don't plan to buy any again.
I've spent a small fortune on gadgets and gizmos over the years; some were useful - most weren't.
My advice...do your scouting... Pick a spot where there is clear evidence of deer activity (the more recent the better), keep the wind in your face and SIT STILL!!!
Like most of you I'm certain, I love to shoot my guns. I enjoy shot after shot all day long at the shooting range… whether it is with one of my Shotguns, one of my rifles, or with my handgun… or when the crosshairs are on a big game animal in a safe shooting scenario. I love to shoot! What I don’t have the same excitement about is cleaning my gun afterwards.Now this is not going to be gun cleaning 101 as every kit comes with its own set of directions and the internet also has a great deal...
