    That makes sense. I was wondering why the bottle directions in the picture posted by Recurve77 was also in French.

    I always wanted to mix a bottle of doe interdigital gland and doe in heat.
    If I was hunting a wooded area I would make a big circle out in the woods with a
    drag rag coming around in front of my stand.Same for a field stand I would circle
    the entire woods line back to my stand.

    I agree. Don't like using any scents, think they are counter-productive.

    Only time I'm aware scent got any response was a mule deer doe walked up to a hanging wick saturated in Tinks 69. She put her nose on it sniffing.

    I believe The company that originally developed this synthetic scent was A-Way outdoors in Michigan.They had a strong presence in the Northern US and Southern Canada. They are now based on Rochester, NY. I assume the French directions are for their French Canadian customers.

    Throughout the years I've tried them all. I've even collected the wax from a does interdigital glands (small hole inbetween the hooves) and nothing has worked as well for me as 1) Buck Bombs 2)Tinks 69 and 3) Code Blue Grave Digger (for observation purposes over mocks)

    I've tried a bunch, had several small deer trail a 69 drag rag, but nothing decent. Years ago if I'd had a camera guy, I'd had the best commercial ever for Standing Estrous. You guys probably remember that stuff, it was pricey, but I'm a sucker to try new things.

    Anyway, had that stuff on a wick, didn't want to pour it on the ground and waste it, and had a 3yr old 10 point come off a ridge chasing a doe. I was hunting a bad wind, but when he hit it, it was like he hit a brick wall. He stopped in his tracks, left the doe( she's probably still running) stuck his nose in the air and followed it to the wick, and his death.

    This wasn't a big deer, but I thought I'd unlocked the key to monster bucks. I tried it multiple times after that encounter with no luck,lol. I'll never forget that hunt!
