A lot of hunters simply wish to use a doe-in-heat or estrus urine when the rut approaches because they know it is attractive to all bucks. However, before the seek and chase period, signaling the start of peak rut, dominant buck who have experienced past breeding seasons are much more interested in other buck scents representing the coming competition for breeding rights.
A natural trail of buck interdigital hoof musk scent from a strange rival buck will be investigated by other buck in the area. Interdigital is an excellent early season natural trail scent to lead a buck to your stand, licking branch, tree rub, or breeding scrape. Interdigital is the communication scent both buck and doe use to say “where I am, where I was, and where I am going” everyday of their lives. For this reason, I separate all natural glands, which are used to make deer musk gland scents, into sexually mature buck or doe glands. Deer certainly know the difference!
Unlike plain deer urines, which are water based, Pollick’s deer musk gland scents, lures, and urines also contain odorless food-grade glycerin that has a sweet taste animals like. Glycerin helps retard spoilage so the lure is able to hold its natural scent longer, it also evaporates slower and freeze-proofs the product, giving off more scent at warm and cold temperatures.
With some recent articles in bow and hunting magazines, Buck Preorbital Gland Scent is finally getting the favorable notoriety it deserves. The older the buck, the more often he uses his preorbital head scents. These articles credit preorbital scent as key to making trail cameras and breeding scrapes come alive. From mid October through November’s peak-rut, raging testosterone levels draw a strong territorial response to dominant buck scents like Buck Tarsal, Buck Musk & Urine, Buck Urine Tarsal Plus, Buck Sex Gland Scent, and Complete Scrape.
People often ask me which lure is best. Well, they have all proven to be equally attractive to whitetail deer in every section of our country and Canada since 1995. Why do I make so many deer scents and lures? Since I was a boy, I have been obsessed with making proven quality trapping lures for different animals. As a life long deer processer, with access to all the fresh glands I would ever need, my passion for lure making grew into producing the finest quality deer hunting lures available today.
Pollick’s lures hit on all cylinders. Quality buck and doe urines are the base or carrier. Interdigital hoof musk scent explains where the trail is headed. Tarsal sex & anal gland scent ignites passion and territorial instincts. Good deer musk gland scents contain roughly three times the scent molecules found in deer urine. These scent molecules produce the natural scent pheromones deer naturally use to respond to one another in the wild. By varying the percentage of deer musk gland scents and urines, a knowledgeable lure maker can dictate the natural scent messages you want to communicate.
