Cover scent idea

4 posts in this topic

I hunt where there are cattle and horses pastured so I always make sure to step in a fresh pie or two. Anyone gone so far as to rub their hunting clothes on a horse or cow before heading out?

can't say I have done that purposefully.....I was reading in a predator mag. the other day about a new way to mask scent. They mixed 3 or 4 different scents in a spray bottle and saturated (I doubt they saturated, but I am sure they sprayed a lot) the area with that mix. Fox, deer, racoon, and I can't remember the other one. I wouldn't spray it on myself but I will be trying it out this year. Basically it confuses the animals because it is picking up fox deer racoon, rabbit, human all at the same time. proof will be in pudding this year.

if the cattle operation is big, hang your hunting clothes up in the barn for a day or two, that should last all season, of course your friends will want to stay up wind of you at all times smirk.gif

I havent rubbed on the cows but I have put thier by products on my pants and shirt. You will need to wash your clothes or you wont get back into the house.

As they say, a little dab will do ya.

One of my best stands is on the fenceline of my pasture. I frequently use the horses as cover when I cross the open pasture during the daylight. Simply have 1 horse on each side of me as I walk, turn them loose when I reach the fenceline. I have used this tactic to get into my stand undetected when there were deer feeding in the field next to mine during the daylight. I'm sure that the horse scent also gets on my clothes and helps to cover my scent as well.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
