Thread: Deer and E-Cigs

  1. #1

    Deer and E-Cigs

    Alright bear with me on this one,

    most deer attractants for sale seem to contain molasses and aniseed (or at least a lot of the paste type ones do) and usually get quite good reviews on attracting deer. Now a guy at work was smoking/vaping on his e-cig today and it was a caramel and aniseed blend which smelt pretty good to me which got me thinking, would deer also find the smell pleasant and possibly be attracted to it?

    has anyone on here who uses an e-cig found any deer (or any other animals for that matter) come and check out the source of the smell as it drifts off down wind? I would assume most stalkers aren't actively puffing away while stalking but maybe while walking the dog or just being out and about in a deer rich environment. Would the smell be too unfamiliar and cause a feeling of danger or would the sweet smells attract them much in the same way the manufactured deer attractants do?

    Do you not think if you were stood there puffing on an E cig . The deer may also smell you ? Or is your intention to hang an E cig in a tree close to a high seat your sitting in ?

    Chill

    I don't know which is why I asked, maybe the smell would be so strong or pleasant for them it's overcome their curiosity so they'd come and see? Like I said I don't know which is why I asked and to see if anyone who uses one had experienced anything odd.

    I always thought the roe bark was a sign of danger! It must be a smokers cough instead!

    Give it a try NH who knows what goes on in a deers head for sure, they are rather pungent so who knows, and if it does work you'll have the last laugh

    I wonder if urban deer are attracted to the smell of methadone.

    I think the aroma of my trollies would overpower an e-cig,,,besides i think most on here would be covered in the rather attractive Eu De La Werthers!!!!

    Isn't there already out there a wind direction detector piece of kit based on this technology?

    I guess you could use an e-cigarette for just this purpose, namely keeping the wind in your face rather than allowing the combined odour of e-cig and stalker to tickle the nostrils of Mr. & Mrs. Roe.
