ANybody out there ever try making their own cover scent by heating pine needles, leaves, acorns, etc in water, then straining it into a spray bottle?

Sounds like a lot of work to me. Scent block or killer works fine & is pretty cheap. I rub my hands or clothes in leaves, grass, or dirt sometimes. If you're in a cow pasture step in a fresh pie on purpose.

I'll purposely step in deer poop and sqiush it around a little.Just to get it stuck in the lugs of my boots.

I usually collect deer tirds throughout the Winter and freeze them. Come fall I add all the tirds to the bath tub along with some nice hot water. I let it marinate for approximately one day and then add pine needles, some dirt, a road kill skunk, and some salt. I usually let this soak for about 24 hours. Next I put all my gear on and slowly lower myself into the tub. I back stroke for approximately 2 minutes or until completely soaked with marinade. I am then off to my stand. Repeat this process if winded! LOL! Had to throw that in. I have never made my own either, I usually use fox or skunk urine!

jlm, I was going to ask how many minutes from the time you started brewing your concoction in the "bathtub" until your wife's lawyer showed up?

I use coon scent as a cover scent generally, sometimes I don't use anything, but scent blocker. I don't want them to associate a certain animal with actually being me either.

Speaking of cover scents, I was wondering about the fox, skunk, coyote,etc.urine.
Do they have a shelf life? I thought that the urine has some sort of ammonia or something (I'm no chemist) in it.Wouldn't that start to spoil or get kind of rotten in some way ? Start to break down.
Also, I don't see alot of fox or skunks or even coyotes in my area so I wonder if a urine cover scent would be a bad thing to do ?

I believe in no scent is the best scent. Get a pair of rubber boats and a scent blocker outfit use a little carbon spray and hit the woods. Using cover scent doesn't mask your scent. It just put two scents in the air yours and the cover scent.

I'm with thore - no cover scent, just scent control products. But during the prerut/rut I might use doe pee as cover scent, or doe pee or one of the estrus scents as an attractant.

I only use scent spray and scent lok suits. Good rubber boots are a key. Also, use gloves when climbing and putting up tree steps. It makes a heck of a difference when direct sweaty palm scent is not on your steps. Deer seem to be completely oblivious to your presence....knock on wood! Good luck this season!

I like to store my garb in a plastic bag and throw a couple of those H.S. Scent fresh earth wafers in there, that and I wear a fresh one on me while I'm hunting, between that and controlling my owm scent I have had good results.

That is the spray I use H S earth cover scent. I could not remeber the brand name yesterday. Stuff works great!!!! Wont stain the hunting clothes and it has never discolored any of my leather stuff either

H S makes some good stuff at resonable prices Like the True Talker best grunt tube out there (I dont work there even though i sound like there salesman) Just like stuff that works!!!
