Team Radical member Kyle Heuerman runs you through his process and the success he has had with it. Personally the trick has done wonders for me as well, but I wasn’t an easy sell.
I had read an article a few years back on the exact thing. I started thinking the idea of peeing around my hunting properties seemed silly and absurd. Why would I intentionally leave any trace of my human existence around my stands when it has been hammered into my head to be as scent free as possible?
After a few weeks of zero bucks on a property’s trail cams, and I mean zero, not even a fork, I gave in. I unzipped the fly and began to soak a mock scrape with urine while thinking I had lost my mind.
Anxiously, I returned a week later to find six different bucks had hit the the scrape withing 48 hours of my work. Three of them were 3 1/2 years or older. It spurns curiosity in the bucks and it is a go-to tactic for me and many others year in and year out.
Don’t knock it until you try it.
Stay hydrated my friends!
