Coon Sent

Quick question on coon hunting. Is it easier for the dogs to pick up coon scent when the grass is wet?

In most cases, the higher the moisture and humidity the better the scent trailing will be. Very dry conditions make scenting more difficult.

higher humidity makes it hard to smell for a dog but the moist conditions are better like due on grass the humidity holds the scent to the ground more then when its not humid just think when its humid how hard it is for us to breath now just try and think how a dog is when smelling a cold track when the humidity is up

I do agree with houndsman, I guess my reference to humidity was about there being dew on the grasses. HIgh humidity and heat makes it hard ot breath no matter who you are.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
