I think 99% of all products with a picture of a big buck on them are a waste of money.

Yep, mostly gimmicks.

I've tried several different "urine" attractants back years ago but never had any luck with them.

Two best buck attractants are corn in abundance piled up and a real doe in heat.

I have hung wicks with doe pee the last few years with 0 results.

Pour some rice bran out, I got more pics of bucks on that than anything else

I have a buddy that starts using tinks in October all they way thru January and a lot of it. He kills big mature bucks with a bow most every year. He will go thru a lot of it, making trails and scrapes not just hanging it in the tree. I really haven't ever tried it as hard as he has but I may try this year since I don't really need meat this year.

A fresh dark tarsal gland cut off another buck works really well. A recently used tampon hanging about 4' off the ground on a tree limb works too. Obviously deer corn. Real doe urine works. Code Blue Grave Digger with Doe Estrous attracts deer very well. Nothing else I've ever used I can say truly made a difference. Like others have said most of it is just a gimmick.

Nothing I’ve found better than a large number of does during breeding time. If it takes used feminine products to kill a big buck, well I guess I don’t want to kill one bad enough!

I'm very selective on when I use it but I've had great success using doe estrous scents. I've had many bucks come straight to it. I think a lot of folks use it too often or at the wrong time.

Good old corn, rice bran, tarsal glands, and urine from a hot doe.

The only thing I use that has a picture of a deer on it is corn, guess that's the 1%

Woah......did the King of Rice Bran honestly not give his own product its due merit? I figured RB would be first on your list
