Hunting is hard enough without using your target’s strongest sense, smell, against you. This tip helps you create a natural cover scent to help you remain undetected while hunting.
First, you need to find a pond, lake, or stream near your hunting area and bring some of that water home. I use a five gallon bucket with a lid.
In order to take advantage of the masking scent from the water you should:
- Wash and dry your hunting clothes the way you normally do
- After drying dip rinse all of your clothes in the natural water from your hunting area
- Hang dry outside
The deer and other animals in your area that water here are familiar with the scents from the water because they have had their noses in it many time when drinking.
