The Buck Bomb® Deer Scent Fogging System - Doe in Estrus
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.

Not much to say except that it worked for me. Emptied a can (several times during the season) at the base of my treestand and within about 30 minutes had deer literally wandering around under my tree.

WASTE OF MONEY
These bombs are fine when they work. I have had too many clog, of stop spraying. That leaves me with a half or even full can of spray that I can not use. These things are too expensive to just "hope" they work.

Not so great
Bought it on 11/09/11, used it the next day. It only sprayed out half of the liquid contents. The rest remained in the bottle. There must be an issue with the way it sprays or something. Like there wasn't enough propellent. . Didn't see a single deer that day either... not one. I was hunting a powerline easement with knee-high grasses. Thought it would be perfect for that area. Not a single deer came by all day. It smells like deer urine though.... maybe the deer werent nearby or something.
