Scents after the rut?

    Just wondering if any of you deer hunters are using any type of scent, be it a cover or attractant after the rut? If so what are you using?

    I spray down with scent killer, and the only cover scent I use is if I can find a good cow or horse paddy to step into. It is just another layer of protection. I scuff it all off, but I believe it helps cover any human scent on my boot soles as I walk to my stand. I used to use the attractant scents in the past, but I save my money now. I know there are people who swear by them, but for me it is a waste of money.

    I always keep a bottle of doe urine with me in the woods. It seems to really help deer calm down and stay by my stand a little longer. And it makes a good cover scent. If I ever need to walk in an area I expect deer to be in before a hunt, I always spray the bottom of my boots with it. I've had many, many deer come walking in the same trail I just used after that.
