Cough drops?

Postby tonybow » Thu Nov 03, 2011 5:45 am

OK, I have a bit of a cold, with the occasional post-nasal drip coughing. Anyone use any type of cough drop, with a scent that "might not" spook the deer? I know there are no absolutes, but I probably need to try something!

This one's easy! Use whichever you like, and then gargle with doe in heat urine afterwards.

Be ready may have to shoot in self defense! :o

Try a decongestant. I have good luck with CVS generic for Claritin when I have that problem.

I gave up on scent control this season, I just play the wind. The deer are gonna smell you if they get downwind of you wether or not your sucking on cherry cough drops or scent killer cough drops.

Pick up a bag of green apple Jolly Ranchers. That is what I use anytime I need to still a cough in a stand or ground blind.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
