The jury for lure effectiveness is out. While many sportsmen credit lures for their success, they may have been just as successful if they had hung a pine-scented air freshener in front of their stand. Also, be cautious of what is on the label, because there are loose requirements for the labeling of deer attractants, and what is advertised might not be the whole truth, given that very little of the desired tarsal-scent compounds may be in each bottle. Lastly, if hunting in a state where CWD has yet to be established, it may be wise to avoid urine-based lures altogether. It’s better to be safe rather than sorry when dealing with a compound that could negatively impact your deer herd.
