Sent question.

5 posts in this topic

I know that sent illimanation is probally the most crittacal thing in hunting whitetails and I've taken the time to play the wind , use sent suit and sent blockers,sent on the ground. You get the I idea my Question is you've gone to the effort in controlling your sent what about the Gun. (cleaners,solvents,oil, powder from shooting)? I can just open some of the solvents in the garage and my wife immedatly asks what are you doing that stuff stinks.I was always taught to shoot from a clean gun. Thats kind of always been in the back of my mind while I'm sitting in the tree stand. What do you guys do?

i think I was on Cabelas'website and there is a no scent oil and stuff like that. They are making products that are designed to lubricate and protect your gun yet not smell. If I find the site with a link I'll pass it on but I know they make something.

Thanks Code-Man I had herd about that stuff and figured it would be to expensive to buy, but thats a really good price on that stuff. The only thing that stinks is the shiping costs as much as the product. still not a bad price though.

Does any body know if one of the sponsers of this site might carry that type of product?

I don't think scent control is as critical when gun hunting as opposed to archary. Regardless you still need to at least take wind into account.

With that in mind I would say:

It depends on where and how you hunt. If you are in tight cover it makes a big difference. You will need the deer close and if they smell your gun the gig is up.

If you are hunting an opening, place you stand off 100-150 yds and clean your gun with what ever works the best.

I personnally have not had problems. I hunt the south side of an opening and expect deer to come in on the north side. Prevailing winds blow the stink away from the deer and I get a nice 125 yard shot.

      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.
