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.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
