Hunter's Specialties Scent Wafers?

4 posts in this topic

Anyone on here use these? got a pack of them with a bottle scent killer i bought. how well do they work? How long do they last? It says on the package that they will recharge themselves when put back in the container? how does that work? and how long will they continue to do this?

Bobb-o,

I have used the wafers for the last 3-4 seasons and I think they work well. I use the earth scent one mostly. It seems to bring some deer closer at times. Maybe they think there is a fresh scape around? I have also used the white oak acorn one when the acorn crop was good. I think both are good cover scents.

When put back into the container, they do come out smellin fresh again. One container will last me most if not all season. I normally just throw one in my scent free bag with all my clothes. My clothes absorb the scent. I don't wear them out in the woods. They can smell pretty strong.

Make sure you don't use the earth scent after everything is froze up. I think it might actually spook some deer.

Good luck,

Mysterio

I love them. I don't go in the woods without them. I use the earth as well. However I may try the acorn sometime. I go with the earth cause no matter when or where you hunt there is dirt. They last quite a while. It seems if you put them back in the container after your hunt. They kinda rejuvinate themselfs and really do last a long time.

I have used them in the past. I havent really seen if the buckrut on works or not. the cover scent ones work well but i dont wear the pine as it is strong but its great to put it in the bag your clothes are in

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
