Default Question?

So I'm sitting here in my tree and it's like my bladder released the flood gates so I oblige straight from my tree. I've never done this before. Been hunting my whole life. Is this hunt ruined?

Nope

But you should always have a empty water bottle just in case.

True but one water bottle definitely wouldn't have done the trick

My first and only buck with a bow (my avatar picture) came after getting down at 4:45 and running about 60 yards from the tree to "release". He came in about 5:30 and walked right passed where I went and I was able to shoot him at 18 yards.

Used to always carry a bottle with a lid. I didn't have one day so walked 30 yards away and let loose. A decent buck walked right over it about 30 minutes later and never paid any attention.

I still carry a bottle if I remember to put it in the pack, but I don't worry too much if I don't have it.

Just make a mock scrape within peeing range of your tree. Refresh the scrape when the need arises

I will pee anywhere in the woods as it's more likely to attract the attention of deer then spook them. I've peed in many scrapes and made scrapes with my pee over the years with game camera's on them and I've had bucks hit them with in a hour after me peeing in them. Heck, on Sunday I peed from my stand that is about 17ft in the air and had a mature buck come in and smell it and then he went back to feeding.

Now when I hunt out of a blind, I pee in a 32oz Gatorade bottle because I sure don't want the pee inside the blind and I'm not opening it or getting out to pee.

Heck yea, pee from your stand. Just don't pee where you'll be climbing down touching it or stepping into it. As long as you don't pee right where the deer will be traveling you will be alright. Deer don't spook from just plain ole pee.

Done it several times and never noticed a difference in deer movement.

Of course I hunt in East Texas where there are no deer so maybe that's why....

I always drink a Vanilla milkshake the night before, so I have Vanilla sweet pee in the morning of the hunt. Of course I don't think you can do that on public land.

I have a bottle most of the time for pure convenience especially if deer are around. Otherwise it's all p---ing in the wind for me. Well with the wind if I can, you know what I mean.

I pee in west texas but not in east tx. In east tx I pee in a bottle, which also then doubles as a body warmer on cold days.

I caught my buddy peeing in one of the scrapes last year I had a camera on after telling him I pee in the scrapes. No, I didn't save the picture so don't ask. LOL Here is a pick of a buck using the scrape the same day he peed in it. The bucks left foot is in the scrape.

I had a couple beers at lunch one day then got in the stand for evening hunt. 30 minutes later had to go so got down and made a new scrape 10 yards from my tree. There weren't any scrapes in the area until I made mine. The next morning there was another scrape close to mine and I killed a doe that morning.
If you got to go, make the most of it.

How many animals do you think pee in the woods?
Do you think deer have identified the smells and associated them to every animal?
If so.. raccoons would be blamed for a whole lot of deer death under feeders by the whitetail community.
