Hot Trails Original Scented Deer and Wild Game Hunting Candles and Buck Lure

Phone: 1-800-927-7404

HotTrails is the original Scented Hunting Candle. Started in 1991 by Bill Moore after he continued to not have much success with traditional scents. Bill worked in a candle factory making scented wax products at the time and he noticed these products put out a strong fragrance even when not burning them, and they smelled for hours and hours. Bill thought, “if I can do this with vanilla… why not DOE IN HEAT!” And HotTrails Scented Deer Hunting Candles were born!

HotTrails scented hunting candles can penetrate up to 500 yards and last for up to 5 hours per candle. Comes in 13 different scents: Doe-N-Heat, Dominate Buck, Coyote/Fox Attraction, Apple, Earth, Corn, Acorn, Persimmon, Honey, Anise, Cinnamon, Bacon and Curiosity.

  2. I’m interested to try your candles. I’m not sure which one to use for late season white tail in the timer (December 15 th). Any suggestion? Where can I buy them in Vancouver, BC?


    1. Trevor, Late season after most does bred, bucks going crazy trying to find just ONE more hot Doe. Use the Doe n Heat
      candles. Sorry I have no outlet anywhere near Vancouver. Best bet is from our online store.

  3. deer will come out of the woods right to the candle. just seeing that is amazing

    1. Awesome! So glad that you had a successful hunt using our candles. Please send an email along with a picture of your hunt and we will share it with the others.

  4. Hello Hot Trails,

    I am a fourth year hunter and I have been using Harmon’s scents for the past three years. I am looking to find my one and only scent company, and your product has been in the lime light along with the Harmon’s products. I will like to start on the right track with you guys, so I can have a awesome success story to tell.

    1. Thanks for your confidence in Hot Trails. We welcome you into the ranks of some very successful Hunters.

PLEASE let me know about handling your products up here. Deer at game farm went nuts over smell, started knocking each other around. I had to put out candle and leave before any got hurt.Does even had to check it out,like different woman in her area. GREAT PRODUCT . TOO bad I could only get four from guy that had them at his garage sale.

  9. I have only used hot trails for one year and I had a very good experience from it in archery season Hot Trails its like a magnet there’s no other way of putting it when they catch the scent you couldn’t keep the bucks off of it I’m seriously you need to buy this and threw everything else out its an amazing product

  10. Your web site is having problems! I can not sign up for the $5 discount on my first order or select a candle type – therefore I could not enter an order.

    1. Hi Tom,

      We are working on the website getting it ready for orders. Please check back with us soon and we will be ready.

  11. Well just wondering is this stuff 4 real cause i never heard of the product thanks Bob

    1. Hi Bob,

      Below is a testimonial from md-n-nc:

      “i have used hot trails for years and i have never been let down. from the first time i used the doe-n-heat candles i have gotten more bucks to come in and stay around. i drip some near a scrape and the bucks keep coming. in one stand i use i have gotten five bucks out of it, all to hot trails. the scent is carried far and wide. always a buck will come to it. if you don’t have many bucks in the area just wait till you light the doe-n-heat candle and they will come to your area and stick around. even after rut they just like the scent. even the shy big ones have to check out where this scent is coming from. lucky for you that scent is coming from your stand. latest big buck to come in i bagged was an 8 point with 24 inside spread from tip to tip. if your not using hot trails then the trails going to go cold.”
