In 25 seasons hunting deer in tree stands and ground blinds ( I have to get them in fairly close & most of the deer I have harvested have been within 50 yards, many less ), I have found that paying attention to wind direction works and trumps cover and luring scents for me. One year several seasons ago, as more of a lark than anything else, I had a doe urine cotton ball near a stand. Deer close in walked right past it, paying it zero attention. It's my belief, based on personal experience, that if the wind is in your favor, you need no cover scent. If it's not, I'm not convinced the best cover scent out there will fool deer.
