Default Evercalm!?!?

The IMO very high priced stuff that looks like deodorant but is not. Is it actually worth it? Has anyone used it that can say with some degree of certainty saw results?

It's the only thing I have used for 6-7 years now. I really like it. I can get 2 years out of a stick. Really easy to roll on your Windows of your blind where the wind blows thru. I roll it on my pants, boots and sleeves. I get the deer herd in a stick and the other one. The red labeled one.

I tried it for the first time this weekend. Put it on my boots then on the windows to my Krivoman. I got blown at all weekend from anything downwind even with only one window open on the wind blown side. Didn't see any miracles with it that's for sure.

I have had really good luck with it. Be warned, it seems to kinda stain. If you wipe it on your blind, you will likely have a white mark from it that wont come off easily. I usually wipe some on the window that I have open, leave the stick opened on the floor of the blind , and I also put some on the toes of my shoes in the final 50 yards into the blind.

I used it last season but it was on a lease that I hadn't been on b4 and now am no longer on so it was hard to say if it made any difference

I put on bottom my boots for last 50 yards as I approach stand. Put a little on tree on either side of me once in stand. Haven't had my scent picked up where I walk in since using. I typically pick up on Amazon or sporting goods store after season for around $8-$10

It is the only deer smell that I use when Bowhunting! The very first time I used it I put it on my boots and walked to my stand in Kansas... once in the tree I put in on limbs on all sides of me.... within the hour I had a 150 inch buck cross my trail and follow me to the tree and swung dead down wind... he then made his way to the base of my tree which was only 7 ft off of the ground and started to lip curl at me... since then I have had other similar experiences.... it seems to do just as it describes... IT CALMS them down in my opinion and allows you to get away with a little more Here is a pic to prove it

I can honestly say that I've never had a deer scent lure ever work out for me except for rattling or using it on a trail. If I set it up around a feeder I always end up getting blown at by deer. I think it could help if you were hunting a trail or rattling but I've never had luck around corn feeders.

I used "deer herd in a stick" when I hunted Brady because there was no way to not cross a trail. Deer would follow me in the dark

Not gonna say it works100%.... but in that area it didn't hurt to use it

I've had good results with it. The pic is of a Doe licking it off the rung of my ladder stand in Kansas. You can see the white stain from Evercalm on my left boot.

I believe in it. I had a buck last week walk up on me while hanging a stand on public land. Less than 5 yds. We were both on the ground. He wind checked. Circled me. Wind checked again. Never spooked. Just walked off. Im sold.

I've used it for years and had good results. I usually wipe a couple trees in my around about 4 weeks before season. Make sure they are use to it. Once I whipped it on a stump, put a camera on it, and a bobcat kept showing up and rubbing on it. Thought that was weird

This! I've had multiple deer follow me in to the stand. I usually try and put some on the limbs and trees 20-30 yards downwind of me if I can. Then again around my tree. I've seen spooky does on multiple occasion come in dead nuts down wind and nose all those leaves and trees I put it on. My buddy killed a stud 8 point last year. It trailed him into the stand walking step for step where my buddy walked in with it on his boots. I absolutely love and have some VS1 I'll break out in the rut. Between hunting the wind, evercalm, ozonics and sound scent control I feel like I have the upper hand every time im sitting now. I just started using evercalm last year. Wish I had done it 10 yrs ago

I had good results with this stuff the first year I tried it in Splendora.
the second year-last year, not so much to the point that I didn't buy any this year.

The deer I hunt in Menard did not like it what so ever.
I guess it smelled like a bigger deer than they were or something but it would put them on edge as to where a hunt without it they would be much calmer.

Different deer, different results.

It works. One of the very few things that isn't snake oil.
I use it around the edges of my blind shoot thru mesh windows. One application will last all weekend.
Of course a good shower and clean clothes with scent away is always a good idea.

I used to put it on the bottom of my boots and walk to my lockon. Then had young buck follow the trail and start sniffing the ladder. Never spooked, but I don't want them standing at the bottom of my tree looking up wondering where their buddy is. Good in certain applications not in others.

Now I just rub it on trees as high as I can reach.

I've used it and another product they have. Can't remember the name of the other Erick. Anyway, I rubbed it on the limb of a small oak. A young 6 point came in, gave it a good whiff, then licked it. Then he gave a big lip curl! I think he liked it!

I use it and have a belief that is does help. Axis in the hill country seem to be a little more calm when I rub it on my blind windows. Got lucky and bought all their remaining stock at the Gander Mountain closeout for $1 a stick. Have about sticks to use as well as some of the Rutting Buck!

Care to sale a stick or two?

GM in Bmt sold things at regular price advertised at reduced price. I would have loved to find a sale like that

I picked up a stick of it yesterday and will give it a try. I believe what you guys say but I heard the same about NoseJammer when it came out. Buck danged near blew me out of a tripod he snorted so loudly. First and only time I have used it. This Evercalm does smell like a barnyard so I got some. I usually just find a wet cow pie to step in.

I bought two sticks at the end of last year on clearance at academy, used one stick last season and thought it was effective. I see it as more of keeping deer from being nervous when they come in, I still make sure i am as scent free as possible

I have used it for the lasr 4 years and by far it has been the best cover scent product I have used! I put it on my boots just before i enter my area and the deer walk right over my trail without hesitation. Once I use up majority of the stick, I keep the old one in by stand and just pull the cap off each time I hunt as well.
