I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am that I found your products. I feel like I am hunting when I check my trail camera. I have been hunting for 30 years and I like to use scents. Of course I always used stuff on shelves from different stores. You have made a customer out of me. I will not purchase any more scents on a shelf ever. The pics I have gotten already from my camera while applying your scents have me so pumped for this coming season. Thanks for what you do. Angel Moreno .
If you have used Smokey’s gland scents, like preorbital gland, to bag a nice buck or two, please call me at (517) 290-6471. I’m doing a story for Petersen’s Bowhunting on how to use these types of scents and I’d like to get some real-world tips from hunters. Thanks.
Hello Smokey, I talked to you a while back, and you said you were going to have some package deals on your scents. i was wondering if you was still going to do that? i was wanting to place an order some soon.
We now have a special on a Buck Lure Bundle! Thanks & Happy Hunting!

Hey Smoky, Without give away your secret, what is the difference between Wicked Wick and the Pre-orbital lure? Thank you
Check your email for reply!
I have there is nothing there. Thanks
Check your spam folder to make sure it didn’t get sent there!
Same question, wondering what the answer is.
What is the difference between Wicked Wick and the Pre-orbital lure? Thank you
The Wicked Wicks is a 4 buck compound & the pre-orbital is one single buck.
Once the seal is broken after the first use of your scents how do you store them? Do you keep them in the fridge? How long will they keep for?
The gland lures i.e.: Preorbital gland lures,Tarsal, Interdigital & Forehead gland Lures should not be refrigerated. Just keep in a cool place out of sunlight.
The urine or estrus based lures i.e.: RutnBuck & Doe in Heat Lures should be stored in the refrigerator or a cool, dark place.
All lures will last at least 5 years.
Send me a catalog of all your scents
We have a small flyer we can send if you email us your address: firstname.lastname@example.org The website actually has all the available products on it up to date!
Could you email the use of you scents, the wicked wick what is that used for. I would like to make a licking branch starting now what to use? Also a mock scrape also looking for a lure to get some buck trail cam pics, any other info you call give me I thank you.
Each of our products on the website have a fairly detailed description of the product & how it is used. For your licking branch I recommend “Smokey’s Pre-Orbital Gland Lure” & for your scrape or mock scrape you can use “Smokey’s Interdigital Gland Lure”. The difference between Wicked Wicks & Preorbital Gland lure is the Wicked Wicks is a special compound made from 4 different bucks. It is used on a rope or licking branch & will attract due to other bucks believing there is more buck activity at that spot. The Preorbital Gland lure is made from one specific buck. Hope this helps answer your question.
How many ounces of scent are in the wicked wicks compound? I remember reading the article on your product, but forget what the gentlemen that wrote the article said about the rope. I can’t remember if he said to put a rubber band on it or something like that. It has been a while ago, but I would like to try it out this year. Could you help me fill in my blanks and do you think it is better or worse to add a scrape under the rope. I only am targeting big bucks if that makes a difference ( I know I often recommend different things for quantity of deer over quality).
There is about 4.25 ounces in the “Wicked Wicks”. You can use a plastic wire tie on the rope. Also, It will increase site appeal if you put a scrape below it. Hope this helps! Also, if you have any questions or would like to speak to me directly, I take calls on Wednesday evening from 8-9 pm (EST) @ (304)564-4087
Good Luck & Happy Hunting!

I hunt in Alabama. Please recommend what lures you would use in this area. i know your not necessarily familiar with area but in general. I’m also headed to Iowa in the beginning of the rut and would like to know what to use.
thanks so much for your help
All of my lures will work in any part of the country. For your hunting in Alabama, the difference will be the heat & evaporation rate of the products. Make a licking branch by peeling back about 8″ of branch, crush & douse thoroughly (at least a dropperful) of Smokey’s Preorbital Gland Lure. This will increase site appeal. Also, tear up the ground under your licking branch & make a mock scrape using Smokey’s Buck interdigital Gland Lure.
To hunt in early season Iowa, I recommend Smokey’s Preorbital Gland Lure on a mock scrape or licking branch & Smokey’s Doe in Heat on a drag rag.
Thanks Smoke!! I’ll place my order. Checking cameras this weekend!!
You’re welcome Jay! Be sure to send us some pictures at email@example.com !
I’ve used your products for the last two years with great success. a 139 P&Y in 2012 and a 140P&Y in 2013. I got great pictures of bucks working the treated scrapes and licking branches with my trailcams.
My questions goes back to the use of the rope, mentioned by Josh. I”m interested in trying that this season if you can give more details like; What kind of rope, how long, how thick, any special treatment to remove the smell of the rope and how is it attached to the tree, etc.
Barry & Gene Wensel (Brothers of the Bow) have explained in great detail on the use of “Wicked Wicks”. Try this web page: http://www.brothersofthebow.com/html/wickedwicks.html
If you have any more questions let me know. Smokey’s Wicked Wick compound was created especially for this purpose.
Do u still set up and sell scents at Rogers flea market?
Last Friday was my last day at Rogers for this season! You can order direct from the website if you need products!
Hey Smokey!! Got your message about your outdoor days at Rogers!! Sounds great. Although I will not be able to put on a calling contest due to the fact that it is not contest season at that time and I could not get enough participant. What I have done though is reserved the “Take Aim Trailer” for those days. It is a self contained BB gun range donated by Harry Potterfield from Midway US Arms and the NWTF. It is a great attraction for kids and adults. Always a big hit!! All free. I can also set up a site for turkey callin and more. The only thing is we cannot pay for a spot because we have no funds. If you can open up 2 spots for our trailer and booth we will put this on for no cost. Let me know.
What do you recommend for proper storage of the deer lures?
Store in a cool dark (or at least out of direct sunlight) place for best storage!
I would like to know how long the Pre-orbital gland will remain viable in storage? And can it be stored in a refrigerator? Also, do you accept phone orders?
The lures can be kept indefinitely! However, do not refrigerate! Keep in a cool place out of direct sunlight! Phone orders can only be placed by mailing a check, we do not accept credit card orders over the phone!
I purchased your Pre-Orbital Gland lure from Wright Archery in Quebec last year. I made the mistake of storing it in my basement fridge. Is it still good or should i throw it out and buy another bottle? Love your picture at the bottom of your contact page, West Virginia looks just like the Eastern townships here in Quebec.
Pre-Orbital or any lure made from glands should not be refrigerated. The reason is that when you remove it from the coldness of a refrigerator moisture can form inside the bottle (condensation), this can dilute the potency of the lure! It should be stored in a “cool” place away from direct sunlight!
Wanting to try a new lure brand and yours kinda caught my eye. I was wondering what kind of shelf life your buck lure products have
The lures can be kept indefinitely! However, do not refrigerate! Keep in a cool place out of direct sunlight! HAPPY HUNTING!
I plan to set up a few mock scrapes using “wicked wicks” this season. I was wondering what your thoughts are on coating the ropes with bees wax and injecting the scent into the end of it. The idea is that any rain would be shed off BEFORE it could dilute the scent. what do you think. Thanks
It won’t hurt to try out your theory. My suggestion would be to leave the bottom few inches of the rope open & frayed. Let me know how it works for you!
Will do! Thanks again!
Smokey, I hope you still remember me?I live in Coos Bay, Oregon.I talked with you by phone,you ended up sending Tarsal,pre-orbital,and interdigital lures.You also sent very good advice with them.You wanted to know how they worked on blacktails,so let me tell you that I can attest to the fact that not only will it work with blacktails,but they showed more interest in your lure than any other bar-none.I have used many brands,some were labeled for blacktail,but none had good results.I highly urge all pacific northwest hunters to see for your self how these products work.Smokey, I will send you photos of mature bucks only using your scents,thank you Smokey,your brother from the mountains in the west.
I was just at your Outdoor Show in Rogers Community Auction in Rogers Ohio. I purchased several of your lures and the book, Secrets of Using Pre-orbital Gland Lure by Steve Sorensen, from your Rep there. He was an older gentleman and told me he was 75 yrs old but I missed his name. My dilemma is when he put my lures in the bag he did not include the book. When I got home and was storing the lures I discovered the book was not in the bag. Could you please send out a copy in the mail to me? Please Let me know how we can rectify this unfortunate mistake.
P.S. Really love the lures.
Sent you an email to get your address!! We will get your book sent out asap!!
I’m muzzle loader hunting in SE Kansas for 5th year in a row; my guide Premo Randazzo again this year raves about your buck gland lures… I forgot to order them last year but just placed an order today (before I forget again). I’m looking forward to trying them out when I return to N MN.
Hi smokey need some heip. Live and hunt in northern vermont and hunt on public land. Seem to only see small bucks and does. What should I do to try and draw bigger bucks in the area?
Hi Ricky! Now is the time to start your prehunt! If you can find an existing scrape from last season, you can activate it by using Buck Tarsal Gland Lure & RutnBuck on the scrape. Also, you can make a licking branch using Buck Pre-Orbital Gland Lure to bring in the big bucks. Keep in mind that the inventory of larger bucks may be depleted as you are hunting on public land with many hunters. Lastly, if the weather is colder, you will need to increase the amount of lure that you use. Happy Hunting!
If I call your phone # can I place an order over the phone? I want to doctor up scrapes what is your recommendation? Do you have a retailer in or around Pittsburgh area? I live about hr north of the city.
Yes, you can order on the phone, however when ordering by phone, we do not accept credit cards. You would have to send a check in the mail which would slow down your order. It is much faster to order on the website. As far as doctoring your scrape, Smokey recommends Pre-Orbital Gland Lure on a licking branch. Also, for early season use Buck tarsal or RutnBuck in your scrape. You can use Doe in Heat on a drag rag to your site. Happy Hunting!
I have used Smokey’s products for 2 years, and bow killed 2 18″ bucks in hardy co Wva. On public land. These size bucks are pretty rare here, and I have found smokey’s doe in heat to be excellent to bring them in. I have sent pictures in to Smokey’s but they never got posted, these were 2 nice 120 class bucks, that would make any hunter on public land happy.
Glad to hear you are having great hunting with Smokey’s lures! Please send your photo’s to firstname.lastname@example.org & we will post them on Smokey’s facebook page!
I made an order and clicked pay by check on accident. I would like to cancel that order. I will reorder and pay by Credit Card Paypal.
Could you send me an email stating my original order is canceled?
Your order is cancelled, sent an email to you to confirm!
Left NJ without my Smokeys deer kure. I am in the East Liverpool, OH area and would love to get a few bottles as my hunt is over Tuesday. Any possibilities? Ed Barney. Last purchase was in 2015 when I lived in Calcutta Ohio. Thanks
Please call Smokey at 304-564-4087, he can possibly meet you tomorrow for a lure pickup.
I placed an order yesterday and wanted to check and see if it has been shipped seeing I’m leaving for a Iowa hunt next Tuesday. Invoice# WC-4855
Your order was shipped yesterday by priority mail. We will keep our fingers crossed the postal service comes through in time for you!
I have almost 3/4 bottle of the preorbital deer scent bottle from last season. Is it still good to use this season. Thanks
It should be fine as long as you stored it in a cool place out of direct sunlight!!
I want to tell you I had great success with the wick compound last year and wound up getting the buck I killed on camera coming to the a couple days before lure. Question: A topic floating around is CWD and urine based scents. is there any concern about spreading the disease with preorbital gland? How do you all protect your product from this. I know this is a complicated question but thought it was worth asking. I am planning on continuing using your products whether you can answer or not. Thanks
What is the best way to store preorbital lure until next fall ? Hardly used any from the bottle this fall.
Just store in a cool place out of sunlight! Not in the refrigerator!
The Only Genuine Pre-Orbital Gland Lure in the World!!
