I will put some out and I think it has made the difference on many bucks for the season opener. After the first day I won't use it again this season. (except in NJ on the first day there too)

I will puy a out scent on the first mourning to , but then I'll be done using scents. I stopped using tinks I think when a scent company gets to big you get alot less quality product.....ask yourself this .....tinks sells a gazillion bottles a year how can they possibly produce that much authentic scent? I try to stick w/smaller companys.I've used Bob Kerchners(silvertop)scents for the past 7 yrs and killed alot of bucks w/ it,dominate does some times don't like it ,but that's why I think it works,to me It's the scent of another dominate doe scent that they don't care for.I do however think that a curious buck will investagate anything close when looking to get lucky.Just my two cents.......good luck to ya tommorow!!!!!!!

TiNKS has a large line of products and I can't even begin to tell you how convinced I am that tinks not only works but it's BY FAR the BEST on the market and NO I don't work for Tinks... I can share a dozen stories of how well Tinks helped me but the most memorable was in 1988 when a 6 pointer literally tracked me for almost 400 yards and I didn't even know it was doing this but other hunters saw it happening from distances and later filled me in to what each hunter saw. I was using Tinks 69 on my scent pads on my boots and leaving a nice trail I Guess... My hunting partner ended up getting that Deer so it was all good...

I'm not saying It's bad but it was probly better stuff in 1988 than it is today.How many deer does tinks have to have in captivity to produce a gazillion bottles?I've heard that in order to keep up w / that much demand they buy leftovers from smaller farms and also use goat urine.....I'm not anti-tinks just figured I'd give us something to talk about.Most deer farms herd there does into barns w/chaneled floors when they think the does are in estrus ,they piss it runs down the channels then gets collected and bottled.Tinks would have to have a pretty big barn don't ya think?BEST OF LUCK.

I use it any time I deer hunt whether its archery or rifle. I will be using some on tomorrow morning and I have found that it has paid off in all seasons! I use Tinks most of the time but I do use others too.

Unclebuck I dont know what you use but I'd suggest you use more tinks if you want more deer. Just this year alone ( 2006 ) We've used tinks to bag 2 DEER a 166 lb. 8 Pointer and a 4 pointer I helped my gf's son get this year as well and again I think using Tinks definately helped during both hunts...
NOW wouldn't you agree that tinks must work in order for both of us to get Bucks while we're both using Tinks?
I dont care how big a barn they got or how many Deer they use all i can say is I know the stuff they market works...

Bruce Bruce, fair enough just figured I'd give us something to talk about ...much luck in the woods...P.S. you do have to admit It would have to be a BIG barn.

Yeah Unclebuck I do agree it would be one HELLUVA big barn and maybe it is who knows.
But hey I'm serious If you've tried Tinks and think it isn't working for you I'd have to say maybe you're not using the right tinks product under the conditions you're hunting in,,, Does that make sense??? like Tinks has a big product line not just tinks #69 the Tinks website has tips on how to use their products. Give it a look http://www.tinks69.com/
There was a time when I totally avoided scents because I thought they were too Gimmicky, too fake... I can also remember when I refused to try using Grunt calls or Doe Bleats and then came RATTLING OH MY GOD I Thought
"Who was the Genius that thought up this one" well after alot of trial and error I learned that if used strategically and with alot of common sense they all work well...

I've tried the Peanut Butter trick, All I found was one hungry squirell and the divot in my butt to prove it
