Tink's #69 Gel Buck Attractant
I can thank Tinks #69 Gel for helping me take my largest buck to date, a 137inch Indiana 8 point. I had applied the gel to branches about waist high every few yards as I approached my stand. The buck had caught me off guard, I had litterally just sat down in the stand and hung my gear from my ezhanger. The buck busted me as I slowely attempted to raise my muzzleloader, giving me that anxious stairdown, just as he was fixing to bolt he caught a whiff of the Tinks a few yards up the trail and turned his attention to it with his lip curled. That allowed me to take aim and drop the hammer, without Tinks I probably wouldn't be admiring the brute as he hangs from my living room wall now!

Sometimes Luck isn't Enough
I'd seen a nice buck between 8 and 10 points over 200lbs crossing the road by my house one night. I wanted a chance at him. I decided to set my stand in a tall pine about 25 feet up overlooking an old chopping full of saplings that I'd seen does and fawns in several times. I climbed in the stand at 3:00 pm and squirt Tinks 69 Gel Buck Attractant several times out of my stand. The scent hit many branches on the way down. Needless to say the tree smelled. In under a half hour I thought a hunter was coming the noise was so loud... I was wrong. It was the same deer with his nose up and he came right to the base of my stand. Coincidense... I think not! He was 9 points and field dressed @220lbs! I will never use another buck lure. Thanks Tinks!

As much as I wanted this product to work, it just didn't.
I had a four point walk directly down wind of this product at 20 yds. and never new it was there. I had the tinks set up on my left as I sat in a group of evergreens archery hunting. I saw the buck come in about 60 yds. but by the time he got to me he was behind me. How or why he didn't pick up the scent is beyond me but there were other instances when this stuff didn't work either.

The bucks come a runnin...the really nice thing about the gel is that it hangs around longer as opposed to the traditional tink liquid which will evaporate and be gone.
