How to Use Synthetic Scents

Use Buck Fever differently than you would real deer scent

Because Buck Fever is so potent and maintains its effectiveness so long and because it is reactivated by moisture, you are better able to “train” deer. Start using Buck Fever prior to the season to attract bucks. While you will still need to periodically replenish your areas with scent, especially as you hunt, you now will have a non-spoiling attractant working for you 24/7. Be careful not to try to attract bucks to too many different spots on one piece of property.

Buck Fever Forehead Gland

BF Gland is a synthetic forehead lure that imitates the scent a buck deposits on licking branches above scrapes and on buck rubs. Use BF Gland above real scrapes or mock scrapes to encourage other bucks to re-visit these scapes more often. We suggest you use a small, clean chamois or other absorbant item on the over-hanging branch so the BF Gland lasts even longer (please clean up when done using). When dry, BF Gland crystallizes so it’s still present. Then when it’s moistened again from rain or dew, the scent reactivates to continue working!

Buck Fever Pre/Post Rut

Ever notice that when your dog pees on a tree in your yard, any other dog that passes it will also pee on it? BF Pre/Post Rut is the year round synthetic urine that encourages deer to socialize and re-mark their territories often because it makes deer think that other deer have been there. It can be used year round in real and mock scrapes. Keep your scent to a minimum with Vanishing Hunter, and apply about 1/4 of an 8oz. bottle initially. Re-check your scrapes occasionally and re-apply as needed every few months, depending on the weather.

Buck Fever Rut

BF Rut is for use in real and mock scrapes, scent drags, and on nearby vegetation and trails during and just prior to and after peak rutting phase. This scent imitates a dominant buck scent and serves to “offend” any other dominant bucks in the area by making him think and intruder has moved in. Caution: Don’t use this if you aren’t willing to scare away smaller, inferior bucks from your hunting area!
