Scent Strategy
« on: Nov 07, 18, 07:04:55 AM »
What's your scent strategy?

I have for years used 35mm film containers with holes drilled in them. Add a few cotton balls and applied scent.

What if anything do you do?

The only thing I've ever had success with are scent drags. Put tinks on a rag and drag it the stand. I've put up scent drippers but find they only get visited at night or right at day break

Rhode Island just banned natural deer scent. trying to avoid the spread of CWD so only artificial scents are now allowed.

 Many years ago I used fox urine and I noticed mixed results.
Then I went with raccoon cover and it seemed just ok.
I am now more partial to earth cover scent and or rabbit urine.
There was a time when I went fox urine and doe pee (Tinks) in two different 35 mm canisters.
 I would set the doe pee canister about 15-18 yards from stand/blind and the fox about 10-12 feet away to the right of the doe pee canister (since I shoot left-handed). I would use a cutoff piece of an arrow which I taped the canisters on and marked my arrows with night-bright glow tape; so they where easy retrieval for me at night, and the way that I would mark my pee containers on the arrows is with 3 marks of glow/night tape for the doe pee and four marks of the fox pee; which meant for me is 3 for pee and 4 for fox and when I would stop hunting for that late afternoon/evening I would take my pee sticks and put those in my quiver.
 I have heard about using skunk cover but it seems too alarming to me, but I have also heard/read another way of using skunk cover was after you leave your vehicle to take a cotton swab and dip it into the skunk cover and drop it near your vehicle to cover up any gas/oil smells.
 I still like the baking soda for washing your clothes theory. 
 I hope this works for you.
