Deer hunting preparation includes a bottle of Tink's 69. Let's roll.

I used to use it a lot, years ago, when I did a lot of Bow hunting!

Had a lot of success with it also!

Last time I used tanks was 91 bow hunting in Barron county. I think James valley was better .

I do think mock scrapes worked good during pre rut, rut last week of Oct to the rut through second week of Nov.

I still use it every year during rifle season. Doesn't seem to hurt!

Of all the lures I've tried over the last 40 years, (and I've tried all the latest and greatest), Tink's 69 is the only one that I can definitively say works...not all the time, but enough to instill confidence. Glad they went back to the glass bottle.

Tink's 69 is good, but I'm a James Valley fan.

Many years ago I was bow hunting and I think it was in early November before the rut. Had a 6 point following a group of does. He got down wind of that James Valley and dropped them like a hot potato and RAN to where the lure was. WHACK.

Tinks works. So does Wildife Research Synthetic. The rut here may be just starting. I put some WR out last night near my game camera. That drew in two bucks, one of which is a nontypical with a whachy right antler, that I haven't seen in weeks. I think WR is stronger and seems more persistent to me. I found the pads I put the scent on yards from where I put them. I didn't catch on camera anything taking them but they definitely got picked up and moved.

Haven't used any type of attractant in years, decades, really. But I might try some this year and see what happens.

My boys are attempting to talk me into trying some with a decoy to pull some bucks within bow range in CRP fields.

I agree. It doesn’t work all the time but it works enough that I keep using it.

I’ve always been able to find a glass bottle if I looked. But it didn’t really bother me.

One did break one in my pocket when I was 14-15 and drunk for the rest of the day.

Used it once only. Big buck walked right by it and never gave any indication it was there.

JMHO- I believe it all depends on the region and
the hunting pressure.
I've had mostly really good luck with 69 and
years back with that powdered airborne whatever
it was called.
I've talked to as many that tell me how bad it sucks
and how it scared off the world record deer from
their spot. Probably one of the best things I've ever
used is a fresh tarsal gland from a buck I've dressed

Same with me more than once but I still put some out every time. I'm in to thinking if a deer is curious it'll have to check it out.

I killed my two largest bucks when using the 69.

I hunt out of a climber. I went up the tree and poured the entire bottle down the side of the tree, creating a huge scent post. Both bucks were shot with their nose up in the air like they were drinking in the smell.

Wind scent cone is a huge issue when using attractants.

I have wet the bottom of my boots with the 69 and had immature bucks trailing me to my stand.

My personal opinion is that it takes more of the 69 than advertising would leade you to believe.

Have done the boot thing before and had bucks follow my trail in.

Yes. Getting girls used to be a perpetual challenge. That 69 stuff has them swarming around at the local pub.

I tie a drag rag on a short string tied to boots and have killed nice bucks following me to my stand. Shot an eight pointer directly under my tree smelling on the ground where I had poured Vanilla on ground....shot him with smoke pole thru back of neck...dropped right there. It was at last light and I sent my 50 cal. down on a string and when gun barrel hit him he got up and thrashing all around in the dark. Got down and trailed him across a creek...lost blood trail. Hunted him for couple days never found him. Back in the early 80's was standing on street in a crowd watching the Christmas parade go by and hunting buddy comes up behind me.....he says you got to see what I got. He just does open a bottle of Tinks 69.....stopped the whole parade...people running everywhere...never forget it.
