Rated 4 out of 5 by JTango Good product, bad shot
I sprayed it through my walkpath through the middle of a cutover, just spraying the bushes as i walked by them. When I got up the tree, I sprayed most of the can again. All day, I didn't see anything, but it was VERY windy. As the sun started to set, I saw a bush and tree in the cutover start to shake. I looked through binoculars to find a 160+ class buck licking and rubbing the bushes I sprayed. One by one, he stopped at them and messed with the bushes. I missed a bow shot at 50 yards on my own error, but he circled right back to the scents afterwards...definitely a good product, just a little expensive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CampCommander "Buck Bomb"
This product and the companion "Doe in Estrus" are without a doubt the best attractants I have ever used. I have used them for several seasons - in Wisconsin and Maryland, and they worked equally well in both environments. When using the product I saw deer when no one else in the hunting group saw a thing. I do not discharge the entire can at once but spray several shots (without locking down the nozzle) every half hour or so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by somerset13 Can-sniffing good!
I sprayed this liberally in bursts about ever 15 minutes last Saturday while hunting. While standing in my treestand, my can of Buck Bomb fell out and hit the forest floor while I was aiming on an 8 point buck. The buck looking around, and literally trotted right under my tree, sniffing and licking at the can. I got a shot at him about 5 minutes later and he's now in my freezer. Unbelievable, but true.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JRS3 Buck Bomb Real Review
I got a great, mature (5 1/2 year old) Florida buck this past weekend while using a Buck Bomb.
The bomb worked as advertised but becuase of the price, will only use it on specific occasions when the wind, rut timing, and location are right.
Hunt Story (so you can decide if it actually worked)
After getting out of the truck, I sprayed the buck bomb on my boots and a drag rag. The walk was about 500 yards with the wind in my face the entire time. Upon arriving at my stand, I sprayed a few bushes, my stand, and set the bomb on full spray so it would empty out on a bush.
At 8:45 AM, I ratlled a spike in from upwind. He ran to the base of the stand, smelled the "Hot Doe", and followed the drag trail away from the stand with his nose on the ground.
At 8:55 AM, I rattled again. This time a deer came in but could not determine what it was. Shortly thereafter, a doe came to the stand downwind, and blew about a dozen times as she stomped off.
At 9:05 AM, I rattled again. The mature buck came from upwind directly too me. He hit one of the bushes I sprayed the bomb on, stopped, I drew back, and shot him at 28 yards.
Now, did the Buck Bomb bring the deer in? No, becuase they came in from upwind. Did the bomb get me a shot? I would say yes, since it stopped him. Between seeing this and how the spike reacted, I would say it is an effective product when the conditions are right.
