Default Cedar posts used for buck rubs

Ok i saw this the other day and it did get my curiousity up. There is a company selling cedar posts that are infused with deer scent with the idea being if these are placed where your mock scraps are the deer will use them. One could also use these to extend a scrape/rub line already established by deer. The compnay is cedar post rubs. So why couldn't a guy get a few cedar posts, infuse a little deer scent on them and do the same thing?? I am not normally one that has to buy every gimmick or attractant out there(actually I stay away from them) but i just may try this on a limited scale ? Any thoughts

Sounds like one can easily make that for next to nothing. Sounds like a good idea in a way.

if you go on the company's site they sell them for $99 bucks a pop I believe. There are a few videos of deer using them as well. I am heading to the local saw mill in the morning to see if they have any ruff cut cedar for sale.

In most parts of WI you aren't too far from somewhere that red cedars are growing. A few minutes with a chainsaw would net you all the poles you'd need......just saying

This has always intrigued me. We don't have many conifers (I recently planted 300 to change that), but I do have a strong scrape trail. I didn't find any rubs last year. So could I potentially induce some rubbing if I planted a cedar pole?

your guess is as good as mine. The whole concept of this did make me stop and think, this could possibly work with the second part of that being, "for not alot of money"

I don't have many conifers on the new place either, but every one of them that I do find has one thing in common.....they've been torn up repeatedly. I do think in areas with few conifers that something like this could indeed become a "draw" of sorts.

I've got a trail intersection with competing scrapes that I hunt over - I think I'm gonna have to try this.
