    try to get ready when you see deer approaching,sounds like your letting them get too close,I try to shoot before they get within an arms length away, good luck

    i have taken cough drops. butterscotch drops/and peppermint,along with an occasional smoke,if your hunting into the wind it doesn't matter

    I chew doe in heat flavored bubble gum to attract the bucks. They also make a skunk flavor cover gum you might try.

    I would think the only way it would scare them is if you were popping bubbles.

    If you are just chewing it normally I wouldn't think it would be a pproblem. I chew gum when deer hunting every once in a while.

    I have heard this about chewing tobacco also. I've never scared a deer because of this and I always chew while hunting.

    Why would you think that?
    Or maybe I should ask exactly how are you chewing on the gum?

    If they smell it then yeah I suppose it may scare them. Depends on the particular deer, if the deer doesn't think it's a threat than they wont be afraid, if the smell makes them nervous then they will bolt. Personally I wouldnt be afraid to chew gum, I chew on gum/beef jerky all the time when hunting.
