Default Doe Decoy for Mississippi Rut?

Do y’all think that a doe decoy sprayed with doe estrous would work in Mississippi during the Rut? I’ve been thinking about getting one to lure bucks into my food plots. The reason why I would like to set one up is that, when I don’t have a doe in the food plot the bucks have no reason to come into the food plot and risk getting shot at. The bucks usually stay hidden in the brush outside of the food plots unless a doe shows up.

I don't hunt food plots or use decoys or scents, so unfortunately I cannot give you any insight. However, the possible effectiveness of decoys has always fascinated me, and I'm seriously considering buying a buck decoy to use like the guys on The Hunting Public do. While sometimes they use the decoy to attract deer, the technique I'm most interested in is using the decoy to hold a buck's attention when they're grunting and rattling from the ground. I bow hunt from the ground about 50% of the time (100% when rifle hunting), and of course the biggest challenge is not getting busted, especially when drawing back. Having something to divert the buck's attention seems to be extremely effective for those guys, and I'd like to try it.

I've read many conflicting things about scents. Some swear by them and some disregard them completely. My hunch is that it would be the rare product that would actually fool the genius nose of the whitetail, especially a mature buck, but who knows? I would be extremely interested to know if your idea would work. So if you do it keep us posted!

I bought the Flambeau Boss Babe Deer Decoy. I will spray it with doe estrous during the Rut!
