    I read in the hunting digest that we can archery hunt right up to the rifle season this year, doe only.

    Ive used Code Blue before. There is a guy local to me that works for Kitchner and gets me some good stuff when he has it but I didnt get any year. That stuff works pretty darn good. There is a new guy who has a product out called the "Deceiver" around here and he has some darn good bucks taken with it in the last couple years. He claims he had 14 different legal bucks come in to this thing last year. My buddy knows him and he gave me a DVD on this thing and a couple weeks ago I saw some pics in the Wal-mart in kittanning of bucks taken with it, some real dandies. Basically you take a bottle of whatever scent you want to use and put it inside this thing and it heats up and gives off vapor but it doesnt evaporate so your scent/attractant works longer. I was thinking about trying it but who knows. I usually keep at least 1 tarsel gland frozen until archery season from the year before, especially if someone gets a doe close to peak time.

    I use Bob Kirschners " Trail Maker " , it seems to work pretty well at bringing deer past your stand where a scent trail was laid.

    The best attractant in Pa. is diesel and exhaust fumes! Every time I go to see my family in Brodheadsville, the highway is littered with dead deer. Looks like the best place to hunt up there is the median of I80. LOL :wink::smile2:

    Hey zebo, next time I see him I'll try and get you a bottle of it (o and thanks for the spelling). I should see him in September at the gun bash.

    There was a six point buck hit by a car last week across the street from Allegheny County Jail in Pittsburgh. If deer can survive downtown , you can find them anywhere.

    For scents, I prefer code blue or any other "single deer" in a bottle pees. I dont use cover scents but am very mindful of the wind. I use a scentlok suite. While I dont believe it removes our scent 100%, I do feel it reduces it significantly. I've had doe walk downwind of me at 10 feet (I harvested her last year) and fox at 20 feet downwind and at most got a pause and a double check before continuing to my shooting lane.

    I don't use alot of scents. I use fresh earth cover scent (spray and discs). My buddy likes to use Tink's, and seems to do pretty good.

    I just found this thread and add me to the list of Pa. deer hunters. I too like Kirchners scents. His book on archery hunting is a good read. I need to break out the bow and start practicing, season is only a month away!

    I hunt in Bucks and Montgomery counties where it is a shot gun reg. area. I walk farther to my Flathead holes than I do my treestand:tounge_out:. I use a Browning splitlimb bow with carbon arrows and 100 grain scorpion mechanical broadheads or an Excaliber Phenix crossbow during archery and I have a Rem. 870 Express Ultra-Mag with camo pattern synthetic packedge and I sling 3 1/2" XX buckshot with it:crazy:. When I go up to the mountins I have a Win. model 94 30-30 (I like to use when I still hunt), and a 30-30 bolt action with a 3 to 9 power scope I like to use out of my treestand. I am thinking about getting a 20 gauge with a riffeld barrel and a scope. I could drop deer from 150 yards no problem and when my kids get older it would be a good gun for them to start with.

    Was on my way to work tonight and saw a dandy buck on one of the farms I archery hunt. Cant wait but it really needs to cool down. Nothin worse than sittin in a tree with sweat pourin off ya and the mosquitos flyin in your ear when you know darn well the deer arent movin till after dark in the heat.
