Cover Scent

Postby tiger3024 » Sun Dec 23, 2012 10:16 pm

I recently had the opportunity to test a product called Skunk Fusion. This product really worked for me this week. I had a doe walk within 17yds of my stand downwind of me. She never knew I was there. An opposum walked under my ladder the same day smelling the air but could never figure out I was sitting right above him. The second time out with Skunk Fusion i had 13 turkeys and 2 does all inside 20 yards of my stand. All I did was put a little Skunk Fusion on the toes of my boots at the truck and walked to my stand. I would definitely use Skunk Fusion again. Two of my hunting buddies are already looking to purchase their own Skunk Fusion! Check them out at http://www.skunkfusion.com/

What do y'all typically use as a cover scent?

I use l'issey miyake. No, perfume doesn't bring in deer, but now I am engaged. (It did bring in a fair amount of turkeys however.)

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.

The best scent is NO scent. Other than that, play the wind.

This is not a new idea. We were using this way back in the 80's with a product called Tex Isbel's Skunk Screen. In those years I never smelled more skunk in the woods than in the previous 20 years I'd been hunting at that time!

I did try that back in the 80's for a while. Funny how after a few hours you don't really smell it that much, but wife sure did. Never used it again.
