My set up is pretty simple to do with great products. All my hunting cloths is washed in Buck Stop laundry soap, I shower with Buck Stop full body wash. And when I get to my hunting location I use Buck Stop dirt human scent elimator. On site I will use or make a mock scrape using 200 Proof and I also put some on my boots. This year 200 Proof worked like a charm. Wind was blowing from East to West. This buck came in trotting with his nose in the air. I ended his life with a 12 yard shot. Its a 8 point with a 18 inch inside spread and dressed out at 190 pounds. Buck Stop made it happen. Thanks a million times over!!!

Michigan's deer herd is in full rut as of this report. This past week has seen lots of big bucks taken, and many more seen. Calling and scents have been the hot methods to use. The weekend of the 13th-14th should be a great time to be in the woods bowhunting. Lots of gun hunters will be making last minute scouting and blind preparations which will have deer moving. The gun opener on the 15th should still find bucks chasing does as the rut starts to wind down. We at Buck Stop wish you all a safe and successful hunting season.
Buck Stop Pro-Staffer Eric C tags big 10pt with 200 Proof.
Eric has a passion for hunting big bucks. Last year he bagged a large 8pt that had responded to a call and Buck Stops 200 Proof Doe-In-Heat. Well this year is a repeat of last year. While hunting Buck Stops property Eric rattled and bleated with a Quaker Boy Bleat-in-Heat can call. Shortly after wards he heard a crash a fence line. The big boy had come a courting. The buck marched across a hay field coming downwind of his stand. At about 80 yards the buck detected the 200 Proof Doe-In-Heat smell. The buck stood smelling the wind current trying to figure where the doe was located. Starting to lose interest the buck put his head down and started to walk. Being desperate Eric used the bleat can once more, upon hearing the estrus bleat the buck whirled and headed right to Eric. At 25 yards the buck gave Eric a good shot. The rest is history.
NOTE: This is the second trophy buck Eric has taken out of Buck Stops owner Brian Johansen's stands. 2 years, 2 buck, with 200 Proof.
Buck Stop owner Brian Johansen scores on a 8 pt that responded to scents and rattling antlers. Here is the story.
Being a business owner of a company that produces deer hunting scents and lures you would think I would have lots of time for hunting. Wrong. This is a really busy time of the year, so my hunting time is at a premium. Oct 13th I finally found time to slip out for a morning hunt. Before daylight I had a buck grunting and chasing a doe through the corn field and woods beside my home. I never saw him due to the early hour and lack of daylight. It was a great morning to be in the woods. I had to hurry to get to work, all day at work I kept thinking about the buck chasing that doe. The weather turned bad before noon with heavy rain and wind. The leaves were dropping like crazy with the wind.
I kind of had a plan laid out for a evening hunt, I figured that the bucks would really be running their scrape line to remove the leaves and re-mark the scrapes after the rain. I had some small items to take care of after work so I was not able to head out to the stand until 5pm. The wind was perfect for one of my favorite stands that I have not hunted in 2 years. I jumped 2 doe's while walking in to the stand. My stand is located in a 3 way corner of a fence line with a corn field on west side, a freshly planted winter wheat field on the north side of the stand and an over grown fallow field with rows of 15 year old pines planted in bands across the field to the east of the stand. I have a road mowed around the fallow field for easy access. After spooking the doe's on the way to the stand I was thinking oh great. The doe's ran in to the corn but did not snort which was a plus.
I was surprise by the large number of scrapes and rubs that have appeared during the last month just about every overhang branch over the road had a scrape under it. 20 yards from my stand there were 2 nice size scrapes and a pretty nice rub. Good sign. Now after not hunting this stand in 2 years it needed brushing out, as quite as I could I opened up a couple of my shooting lanes, finishing up I place a scent wick near the rub treated with Buck Stop's New Guide Grade Scents Doe-In-Heat. I reapplied some Buck Stop DIRT masking scent on my boots. Climbing in to the stand I had some limbs to remove there as well. Now it 5:30pm I am settled in starting to enjoy the fall colors, geese flying, just a great night to be hunting. At 6:30 I started a rattling sequence with a light sparring rattle. This lasted about 3 minutes, with in just minutes a doe and fawn came troting out of the corn field. COOL! They milled about a short while and headed out in the fallow field to feed.
About this time the wind started to pick up and it was totally wrong for this stand. Bummer, figuring the hunt was going to be a bust with the wind coming out of the north. During a lull in the wind I picked up the antlers and rattled again this was a little longer this time, about the time I was thinking about hanging the antlers up I heard a corn stalk break, looking behind me I saw a nice buck walking toward me. I hurried and hung the antlers up in the tree, I grabbing for my bow with my heart just pounding in my chest. Love that feeling. The bucks course was taking him downwind of me. He passes through the fence line 30 yards downwind of me but intently looking for the 2 bucks that he heard fighting. He contiues to circle me until he is directly down wind of the rub where I had placed the Doe-In-Heat scent. It was like he ran in to an invisiable wall, he stopped and started doing the lip curl smelling the scent. Walking forward to smell the scent wick, He gave me a good shot. The rest is history.
I have know for years that the best time to use "Estrus" type scents is the 2 weeks or so before the actual breeding phase of the rut kicks in. At this time the scent you put out is the only source of the scent a buck is seeking.
I am often asked the question of when is the best time to "RATTLE" for whitetail bucks. I have rattled in bucks from September through January. The style of rattling is largely dependent on the phase of the rut at the given time. Some of my best rattling experiences have been the first week of October in Michigan. I have successfully rattled in bucks in Canada, Texas, Mexico, Ohio as well. In my 30 plus years of rattling whitetails I have learned some tricks that work year after year. Some of these tricks just might work for you too.
Things to remember, deer have 3 important senses that they use the most, smell, hearing and sight. More often than not you need to trigger 2 of the senses to get either a positive or negative response. Trigger either sight or hearing and the deer will use its sense of smell to reinforce its other senses. So it makes sense to be as scent free as possible, and the use of an attractant scent as well. Use non-rutting buck urine during the early pre-rut period. Buck Stops Guide Grade Scents #GG150 or Supreme buck urine #1502 are good choices.
During this pre-rut period bucks have shed their velvet and are establishing the pecking order. These early season rattling sessions are a soft tine tickling affair. I have had my best success in rattling in grassy fields about 45 minutes after daylight and the last 90 minutes of daylight. Most of my sessions are done "BLIND" meaning I have no deer in sight. I lightly click the antler tines together for 10-15 seconds pause a couple seconds and start over again for another 10-15 seconds. I will repeat this of up to 5 minutes. I am always scanning the area for movement. Lots of times a buck will respond before you finish the sequence. You will see manly 1 1/2 years bucks during this pre-rut period.
The peak rut period requires a different approach you will need to be more aggressive and louder in your rattling sessions. I tend to move in to the woods and wood lines during this period, I also start using the estrus doe urines like the very popular 200 Proof #1401. Hot scrape area are a prime setup spot during the rut. I will always start a semi light blind rattle just before daylight unless I can hear deer moving nearby. If I have not seen any movement after the first 30 minute of daylight I will launch in to an aggressive "LOUD" rattling session. These sessions will last 2-3 minutes, a few rutting grunts from your favorite grunt call helps as well. I will repeat the sessions every 30 minutes or so. I often issue a series of grunts between sessions. This is the period when I rattle in my biggest bucks.
Rattling when you have a buck in sight is a hit or miss thing for me. I will just click the antler together just loud enough for him to hear them, you then have to play off of the way he acts. Grunt calls really help during this situation. If he shows no interest I will rattle once after I no long see him, and then play the waiting game. In the morning wait at least 1 hour after you have seen a good buck leave, they tend to sneak back in from downwind. Play your cards right and you just may shoot a buck of a life time.
I always want a buck to know where I am hunting at. I just don't want the buck to know what I am. This is where Buck Stop's scents come in to play. Fooling his nose is 3/4 of the battle.
Advanced methods include using a decoy or two near a hot scrape. I only use this method a couple times a year where I place a standing buck over a bedded doe, with the use of scents, grunts calls and rattling antlers. I normally use this when I start see big bucks moving during the day searching out does. NOTE: Never use this method during gun season.
Good luck this season. Put a little noise in to your hunt.
Buck Stop Lure Co, President Brian Johansen along with TOG Marketing Director Curtis Cook had a successful bear hunting trip hosted by Artic Edge Outfitters in Ontario Canada.
The weather was unseasonably hot with temperatures in the high 90's. Brian and Curtis were planning to film the hunt for a future TOG TV show. Getting a successful hunt on film is a lot harder than hunting by yourself, twice the nosie, twice the scent, twice the movement.
The weather was holding the bear movement to the cooler parts of the day. Brian and Curtis relied on Scent Stop, scent eliminator products from Buck Stop to kill the human scent. The walk to the stand would soak you in sweat, with out a scent eliminator we would be busted. On the 2 day of our hunt this bear came in from downwind and never knew we we there. Congratulations to Curtis on his first black bear. OH and we got the whole hunt on film.
