Cover Scents ???

Postby Goose » Thu Sep 04, 2008 7:28 am

I was wondering how many people use cover scents vs scent eliminators. I tried several cover scents like coon urine and the such and just couldnt get past the fact that i put something on to emit scent and draw attention. Switched to scent eliminators and feel better and more scent free. Your thoughts??????

I'm with you, Goose. Given the lengths I go to to eliminate scent, it does not make sense to turn around and put something stinky on myself.

[font=arial] I think with all the new stuff on the market,  everyone is tryin to find the right stuff for the area, weather cond, and all that. its all great stuff, but we all need to take time to really think about what and how to really use them effectivly[/font]. [font=arial]i use them all the time, but i try to do it only in the field. i have had a long time to figure out what is goin right and wrong when im done with the hunt. but they are all good products to use.[/font]

100% scent free is the only way to go

I use scent killer products, but I still use earth scented wafers to cover any scent that is left over. I tried not using the wafers...then went back to them, after getting sniffed out a couple times. I think the key is not to refresh the wafers in the container, the stronger scents turn the deer off. If you smell the wafer and it reeks just think when a deer smells it, they can smell 10 to 15 thousand times better than humans are capable of smelling.

I was just perusing the old threads and thought I'd bring this one back up.
 
From what I've seen and read it seems like scent elimination should be more of a focus.  I think one exception would be utilizing doe estrus urine durine the rut.
