Deer Hunting & Raccoon Urine

Went on my first deer hunting trip this morning with my buddy Randy Allen. We saw an amazing sunrise and some beautiful deer. I really enjoyed the trip …. well, most of it.

Everything was cool except when Randy felt the need to cover our scent by whipping out a bottle of raccoon urine, and spraying the area where we were sitting. Yes, it was a bottle of RACCOON URINE???

From that point on I couldn’t even concentrate on the beauty of the morning. All I could think about was, “Who on earth is in charge of bottling raccoon urine?” What kind of person packs a lunch and head to work everyday, all for the purpose of bottling raccoon urine?  AND, I hate to be the one that brings this up, but how much do you have to pay the guy who is actually in charge of getting the urine from the raccoon?  It all just baffles me!

I’ll be the first to admit, when it comes to deer hunting I’m a rookie. But never in my wildest dreams would I have guessed raccoon urine was in important part of deer hunting … or anything else for that matter.

One thing I know for sure … it was the sickest thing I’ve ever smelled!

    Love this! You didn’t answer the important question-did you or your hunting partner get a deer? If so, the racoon urine was a good investment! Makes me grateful for my nice office job-I wouldn’t want to be in charge of the racoon urine.

      No deer. We saw one that Randy wanted to shoot. I wasn’t going to hunt, just to watch. I’d rather shoot birds (turkey, quail, dove, pheasant) than deer.

    Homeschooling my son can be pretty challenging … but not as challenging as bottling raccoon urine!!

    I’ve been deer hunting since I was a small girl, and I still go every year. I’ve never used raccoon urine. Ever! And yes … we’re successful a lot of the time! :) Next time, tell your partner to leave it at home. 😀

  3. Randy Allen says:

    Brenda, I rarely use the raccoon urine. But had you smelt Morgan this morning the raccoon urine was a definite upgrade! :)

  4. Amy O'Connor says:

    Oh that is too funny! I have heard of this before, but luckily never used it. You can also use coyote urine or something to keep things like gophers away from your yard. Who wants to spread coyote urine in their yard, though?! Wouldn’t that attract coyotes? Just a thought.

  5. Greg England says:

    You gave me a good laugh this morning and Randy’s comment is priceless. Not only do I wonder who goes to work to bottle raccoon urine, but just exactly what is the process to obtain that product? Do they keep the raccoon’s close to running water? Doe they have diapers to collect the urine? If you used that in the deeper south, you’d probably have half the coon dogs in the area scaring away your deer.

    Great post, Trey… I needed something to brighten my morning.

    Trey I really think that you should stick or stink with the birds!!!! They don’t smell like deer, maybe it was that new bodywash and Randy was not liking the smell!!!!

    One more reason hunting is not for me….

  9. Jeanne M. says:

    Almost hit two deer on my way home from evening service. They were so graceful, but am glad they were also swift. I know people who hunt claim they go for the meat, but nowadays that is not so much a “need” as a “want” unless you and your family are not getting enough to eat. IMHO

    in this day and time, a job is a job!

    If Randy brings the bottle to Honduras, I know people and can have him arrested. Then we could follow up on more of Matthew 25 – when I was in prison, you came to visit me……
