WHAT'S NEW FOR 2012
First of all, we are celebrating Tink’s 40th Anniversary as America’s #1 Buck lure. To celebrate this, we have brought back Tink’s #69 Doe-in-Rut Buck Lure in its original glass bottle and poly seal cap. The bottle that started it all! We are offering this in a special 40th anniversary package.
To follow up on our highly successful line up of Power Scrape synthetic all season deer lure, we’ve added the Power Scrape Gel. The same formula that helps you to pattern bucks but in a gel form that lasts in the rain and wind. Start to pattern your bucks in August making mock scrapes and using trail cameras.
Tink’s B-Tech odor eliminator ranked #1 against the other leading brands by an independent test lab in removing human odors that instinctively spook deer. Reducing human odor is key when hunting those monster bucks or big game.
New this year are Tink’s Cow Elk Estrous Smokin’ Sticks. Designed to smell like a cow elk in estrous, the scent drifts downwind and clings to everything it come into contact with.
Another item in the smokin’ stick category, is our new Tink’s Bear Honey Bacon Smokin’ Sticks. It's a strong food odor that bears crave.
Will my lure be good next season?
With any natural urine when exposed to air it will start to break down. As long as the cap is tight and out of direct sunlight and stored at room temperature it will be fine for the next hunting season.
How do I know what type of lure to use for the time of season I’m hunting?
For the most part you can break down deer lures into a few different categories, those are, Early Season, Curiosity, Buck Urine, Doe P, Doe Estrous, Scrape and Mock Scrape products. The one category that a hunter could use wrong for the time of year is those products that are designed for the Whitetail Rut. These products are doe estrous or doe in heat. The best time to use doe estrous products is when those bucks are chasing does. All other lures can be used through the entire season.
How do I know when the rut is at its peak?
One of the best ways to find out is to just ask the question at a local sporting goods store. They live in the area and get good information from local hunters. The sure fire way to know is when you see bucks chasing does in the middle of the day and in the wide open. Another way is if you have been hunting scrapes and the buck has stopped tending or visiting that scrape that means he is now tending or spending all his time looking for does.
How much deer lure should I put out?
Keep in mind that one way deer communicate is by smell. But don’t expect to put out one little drop and expect deer to smell it. To attract a deer using a lure, the deer First Must Be Down Wind of the Lure, meaning the wind is blowing from the lure to the deer. If it’s not, he or she will never smell it! Here at Tink’s we recommend using our Scent Bombs. Take 3 Scent Bombs and fill them with about 1/3rd of your preferred lure and place them in different locations around your stand site. This way if the wind changes and a deer comes in from a different direction, they will smell the lure.
