Everyone that knows me will tell you that I'm a serious bowhunter. But when you have a bad wind for your bow setup on a Red Moon, you have to think quick to make something happen. Especially, when you are chasing a world class buck that all your neighbors are after.
Last Wednesday was the perfect storm to get my target buck on his feet. The wind was in his favor, it was the first night of a Red Moon,the evenings were cooling down quick, and there was a nearby bean field that was calling his name.
I decided at the beginning of last week to grab my muzzleloader and find a place that I could get well above him and reduce his ability to smell me. I have gained a lot of confidence playing questionable winds that are in their favor by using an Ozonics and RAW Calming Scent. This combination has really changed the way I think. Before, I would have never went there on that wind.
Now I can claim my second buck scoring over 200". Actually, he gross scored 223 4/8". I'm sure glad that I have tools like RAW calming scent to help give me the edge over these incredible animals.

After 40 years of chasing whitetails with a bow, I've tried every deer lure under the sun. I can honestly say that after a full season of using RAW, these are the best deer scents I have ever used! Fooling one mature deer a year, like my Ohio buck, made for a successful season - but also harvesting my biggest Illinois buck to date after 15 years of hunting there made for one of my best falls ever!
Never saw or caught a trail camera picture of him until November 22nd I saw him tending a doe and fending off 7 other bucks. The 29th I drove into the west side of his core area and made a giant mock scrape and gave it the buffet treatment. Based it with scrape lure, kicked dirt around then half a bottle of multi buck urine, finally 2 ounces of 30+ peak estrus in one spot to finish it off. I put it there because the wind is mostly NW there and I wanted all of those scents blowing through his bedding area as much as possible. 11-30-21 he entered it from the SE and worked it.

Just after 2021 Thanksgiving, I was hunting in Ohio after a giant buck. My stand was located in a bowl that potentially could have some swirling winds. As my hunt started a light wind was in my face, but as it started getting later the wind picked up a little and started swirling. I quickly grabbed my RAW 30+ and started spraying my tree and pumping it into the air. It wasn't long and my target buck showed up and he was looking. I'm pretty sure that he caught the sent and came in looking for a hot doe. Unfortunately for him, the only thing he got was a hot arrow....

I was hunting a small tract of ground and knew this deer was in the area along with a lot of other people in the area, early in the summer I kept religiously doctoring up a couple community scrapes that I knew that mature deer used most of the season, this deer started checking the community scrapes more during daylight after I started using Raw Frozen Scents 30+ peak estrus! Letting me harvest my biggest buck to date!

I have used a wide variety of scents Over the years but I’ve never used a scent that keeps them so curious and keeps them coming back quite like the 30+ peak estrus! I had 3 years of history with this deer, which was a minimum of 6.5yrs. old, and had only nighttime pictures of the deer before I started using Raw Frozen Scents! The only time I had seen this deer in daylight and on the hoof, to be exact was after I started using 30+ peak estrus in existing scrapes! There a difference in convincing a younger deer on a scrape line, but once it starts convincing a 5.5, 6.5 yr. old deer, that says something to me! Raw Frozen scents are definitely a quality scent!

2021 "Candy Cain" was his name this buck played the game well not wanting to show up, every 2-3 weeks! That morning I juiced up 2 mock scrapes with RAW scrape lure, at 9:45 I had 145" buck working the one on my right at noon I had a 130" in the same scrape, at 3 pm Candy Cain was now on their same track headed to the mock scrape!!!! If it wasn't for that mock scrape I put in there he may have never walk that trail that let him to me!!! "RAW FROZEN SCENTS" they work!!

I’ve been after this buck for 3 years. I walked his area this spring for 6 weeks. I was elated to find the coveted palmated side! To say I’m driven is an understatement when it comes to big deer. I bought one of your packages and began putting them out. I really wanted to get him with my Ravin, so on November 13th, I put a whole bottle of the 30 estrus out in my shooting lanes. Twenty minutes after I left the trail cam, he showed up standing in my shooting lane for 15 minutes! On the 15th, our firearms opener, I went out at 2 different times to spray the estrus scent liberally in the spot where he was on the 13th. At 5:17 pm, he came in prancing with his head down and put his nose right where I’d put the scent! I shot him and dropped him in his tracks! I have won the local Big buck contest with him! Everyone is in awe of his antlers! He is my buck of a lifetime! Without a doubt he came to your Estrus 30 scent, which I believe brought him out during shooting hours! An amazing hunt and so glad I bought your scent products!
A brief story on my experience with Raw Scents starts with Josh Bias. He’s the reason I tried it seeing all the success he has been having with it! I had been after a buck all year with no luck. Late October I made a few mock scrapes with Raw Scents. Immediately I started getting more regular daylight pictures of him checking the scrapes. A week later I set up on him. I hadn’t had a picture of him for 2 days straight but still had a good feeling! As I walked to my stand I added some raw scents to one of the mock scrapes 20 yards from my stand. 3 hours later he come directly to that mock scrape presenting me with a perfect shot! Fast forward to the last week of WV deer season in December. I kept all my cameras up on them scrapes and had TONS of bucks checking them scrapes from the day I tagged out in October till the last week of December! 90% of them were bucks I had never seen. 75% of them being mature bucks! I am a firm believer in Raw Frozen Scents!!!

Thanks to raw frozen scents I was able to harvest this awesome buck on video during the October lull using the scrape lure, I always enjoy making mock scrapes during September and October and hanging a trail camera over them. The pictures and videos that you get over this product are phenomenal… With this Buck in particular I ran a few mock scrapes along edge of a field and was able to pull this mature buck in during one of the more difficult times of the hunting season. I recommend these products and believe they’re by far the best scents on the market!!!

I was hunting in a blind with the south wind in my face, when all of a sudden the wind shifted and started coming out of the east at prime time. According to the weatherman, this change wasn't supposed to happen until several hours later. Knowing that my target buck was most likely bedding to my west, I quickly started pumping RAW 30+ Peak Estrus out the front of the blind. It wasn't long and I heard something to my right and then I saw the antlers to my target buck coming in straight down wind. Quick thinking and 30+ helped seal the deal on this guy.

Once again, Raw frozen scent didn’t disappoint. Nov. 4th I walked in with calming scent on my boots for cover scent to get into my tree stand, mid-morning a deer that I had in my sights skirted me through some standing corn and once he hit my path that I brought into the stand and he was very interested in it without acting on edge, so I made my decision that the following morning I was going to take 30+ peak estrus and spray on the bottom of my boots and hope he would cross my path and follow it to or within shooting distance of my tree stand, and wouldn’t you know it, he read the script and did exactly that. To say that RAW frozen scents are an average scent would definitely have to be a understatement in my opinion. I use it to walk across a certain area that I think a specific deer is going to cross my path by spraying it on the bottom of my boots and have had multiple success stories with using that method, RAW is definitely another way to stack the deck in your favor while in the woods.

I used the RAW Scents in 2020 for the first time. I had some really good action using a decoy and the estrus. I had a 3-year-old mount my decoy 2 different times, and a really nice 10pt. that came in and wouldn't leave. Then on the last day the deer that I was hunting came in and stopped at 22 yards in my shooting lane when he got down wind of wicks that I had put out that morning. I will be using them again this year in Illinois and Georgia.
By far the best scent I have personally ever used. I've been using it since 2016 and pics at my mock scrape sites have tripled since then. I also use it as a cover scent and on drag rags going to and from stands, and have had multiple times where bucks or does would follow the trail directly to the tree. It's the purest, freshest and best priced scent on the market.. If you'd like to see it in action with some pics at my scrapes go to @CalculatedKillers Facebook and search the albums for mock scrapes..
I was hunting late season in Kansas. It was a now or never hunt and I had to get aggressive. This buck was bedding very close to my tree stand and I was concerned about swirling winds and my human scent from entry. I used a calming scent on a drag coming in and poured out scrape lure at the base of the tree before I climbed up. Rut action wasn't on this bucks mind in late December, but I feel that the combination of scents put him at ease during marginal winds. RAW scents will be a huge part of my hunting tactics all fall and winter moving forward!

RAW is our exclusive go to on our lease in one of the bow only counties of WV. We use it year round. Whether it be the Scrape Lure for early season mocks and licking ropes or mid late season the Rutting Buck and Peak Estrus definitely have led to us harvesting and seeing more mature bucks. This buck came directly to the scent wick with Peak Estrus.
In 2021 I harvested a 10+ year old southern WV trophy buck on Nov 7th. I had named the deer Antelope in 2020 because the way his antlers curled at the tips. I made a Raw Frozen Scent mock scrape a week prior and 4days after he showed on the raw mock scrape I got the opportunity that I had been waiting on. At roughly 8:20am Nov 7th he came in hitting the mock scrape and finally around 9am he finally presented me the shot I had been anticipating for. Thanks to Raw Frozen Scent for the buck of a lifetime and the oldest mountain monarch to date.
Made scent drag to my set using peak estrus. Hung the scent drag up 60 yards in a sapling. About hour later a doe came and he was about 20 seconds behind her chasing. She ran up the ridge behind me and he was heading that direction also but not before he stopped to smell the scent drag I had hanging long enough for me to get a perfect shot behind the shoulder he's my 2nd largest mountain buck. I didn't know he was in the area I went in blind to a new spot I found on Google maps.

This beautiful Ohio 8 pointer was harvested right in the middle of the rut on November 11th. Things were getting really good and I knew I had to fire up the big boys so I was running Raw Scents Scrape Lure in the mock scrapes around me that were just getting hammered. On this hunt I actually used a scent drag with Raw 30+ Peak Estrus and came in on the backside trail to my stand. Later that evening this buck followed that drag directly in and came in grunting and puffed up and I put an arrow through him at 7 yards!
