Recently I was provided a sample of ConQuest Scents EverCalm™ Deer Herd Scent Sticks™ – 2.5 oz. to try on our hunts. I’ve seen the product commercials previously and wondered whether or not it really worked.
ConQuest Scent Sticks state that the scent is made up of “a collection of buck, doe and fawn bedding area scents and smells”. I found the best feature of this scent is the dial-up, deodorant style container it comes packaged in. You can easily dial up as much or as little as you need to put out.
Once you dial-up the amount you wish to use, you can easily rub it on any area you want. I would recommend that if you plan to rub the product on your boots, wait until you exit your vehicle before walking to your stand/hunting area. It is definitely a potent smell but it is not offensive; at least I did not find it as offensive as some cover scents I’ve used.
While testing this product in the field on a recent hunt, I did have does walk right up to where I rubbed the Scent Stick and they did not seem to be offended; none of the does blew at it, stomped their feet or acted nervous in any way. I haven’t been lucky enough yet to come close enough to a big buck this season to attest to the products effectiveness around mature bucks; but seeing how the does reacted, I’m confident that the product will have the same calming effect on the bucks as it did with the does.
