Whitetails: Scrapes vs. Rubs

There has never been a hotter topic about deer hunting than whether it is better to hunt scrapes or hunt rub lines.

ScentLok: Seven Steps to Scent Control

Since the dawn of time, hunters have battled the noses of the game they pursued. Several products have come to the hunter’s aid, but few with the results enjoyed by ScentLok.

“When we were kids, my dad paid a bounty of 10 cents per mouse. This more than piqued the interest my brother (Brian) and I already had for catching mice. In the beginning, we thought cheese was the ticket. It seemed to work well enough in the cartoons, and we didn’t know any better. It didn’t take long to realize our mice were not fond of cheese. We decided that if we wanted to be successful, we were going to have to do some experimenting on our own,” said John Burgeson, president of Wildlife Research Center.
