      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Cover Scent Waffers

Recommended Posts

iffwalleyes

I have been thinking of using some of these on my up coming elk hunt to MT. I am planning to use the cow elk urine but holy cow do those things stink. It almost concerns me that it might be too strong. It also makes me wonder why use a product like dead down wind and then pin these things to my clothes. Have any of use used these in any fashion. I usually throw the dirt or earth smell ones in with my cloths so they have a little cover on them. What do you think?

I think wearing them they are too strong. I sometimes put them in the container holding my clothes. But it seemed everytime i would wear one the deer get freaked out.

I'd rely on some fresh cedar and/or other evergreen boughs to crush up and rub all over yourself. It's difficult on hunts with big terrain. You sweat, and that's just a reality. Some of the no-scent anti-persperents are good ideas, and I even know guys that sprinkle baking soda all over their armpits and lower extremities on a somewhat regular basis.

I wouldn't recommend cow elk urine or any sexual attractant as something you'd apply to your boots or clothing. Not unless you plan on always looking over your shoulder smile.gif

I have heard some creepy stories about that as well.

The thing I don't get with the putting baking soda on yourself or your clothes is that it is supposed to attract and hold the scent. Therefore, you're just transferring the scent to the baking soda. So I can see putting the baking soda in a container with your clothes or boots but not in or on the clothes themselves because it would defeat the purpose. Washing the clothes with baking soda would make sense because on the rinse cycle, the baking soda water would go away.

I hunted with the Fresh Earth Waffers last year, one in the bow case, one in my clothes tote, and one pinned to my hat. I think they were way too strong and greatly decrease my chances of seeing deer. I think I will still keep one in my bow case but that is it.

Dahitman will enjoy this, go to the store, get youself some cheap pantyhose, fill each with dirt, leaves and rotting wood chips from your hunting area, tie them off and keep in your hunting clothes containers and bow cases. Works for me.

I definately wouldn't put any type of sextual attractant directly on my clothing, not unless you want rutted up bull elk trying to have its way with you.

That would be like placing bacon strips on your pants and walking through the woods at night looking for bear.

I would stick with some dirt and pine needles or whatever grows in that area.

You know I was thinking the same thing. But if he got that close I don't think I could miss grin.gif He would be in bow range that is for sure. The minute after buying them I starting second guessing that decision. Like mentioned they are so strong. I can smell them out side of the package. I suppose I could open them up and let the aroma fill my garage. If I come home in Valley City ND and have an Elk standing outside my garage I would know they work grin.gif That is what lead to my question because I am going to the precaution of washing clothes with scent free products and then pin one of these one. I suppose I could rig them to the bottom of my boots or something like that.

Chuck --

Cool idea. I don;t know what the wife will say when I bring home pantyhose. wink.gif

Reminds me of the time when I went out and got some unscented tampons for scent wicks -- I know my wife thought I was nuts. She told all of her friends and they got a kick out of it.

Yeah, and she bought some for me for Christmas -- That was funny.

Dahitman. Tampons are the way to go for scent wicks. Cheap and you can make a trail of them and bury them in the dirt along trails so they hold the scent for a while. I've given up on the scents for this year, though. Just focusing on trail cam results/timing and where I think the deer could be. I have only been disappointed by scents and spent a lot of money ($20-$30 each of the past years) that could have went toward food plant seeds or minerals!

Valley City. That brings back a few memories of dear old college days. I know there should be more memories but I took several trips to "Youkon Territory" while in college.

On to the wafers. I use them in an action packer to store my clothes. My brother can smell them from a long way off when I put one on my blind so I stopped taking them on the hunt. If a human can smell them you know a deer will smell it from a mile away. Doesanyone still keep the glands from last years deer to hang near their stands. I remmeber some old timers do this when I was young.

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.
