E137: How To REALLY Hunt With Scents (feat. Josh Smith of Wild Carrot Deer Attractants on Seasonal Changes In Whitetails, Hunting With A Long Bow, Drag Lines, and Mock Scrapes)

October 10, 2019

I'll be honest; I've always been a touch skeptical of deer scents. It always seems like marketing more than science. That is until our talk with Josh Smith of Wild Carrot Deer Attractants. Josh has really gone the extra mile (or 4-5 when he is hunting way back) to evaluate and discriminate what is fluff and what is legit. A real hunter in a difficult part of the country, Wild Carrot is put to the test and has proven results.
