Well, the wife goes hunting with me occasionally. I’ve been hunting whitetails 28 years and I have taken only one buck larger than the first deer she ever took sitting with me one morning in 98.Yes, she gets the coon scent sprayed on her as she is giving me the look.
I’ll use any name brand but I prefer Buck Stop Coon Scent. Actually I wash my camo at the beginning of each season and keep it in a large rubber tub during the season without washing it. By the end of the season I smell like an old boar coon because I spray myself everytime out.
I have a travel trailer I've named "The Kyotee Den" that stays at the lease where I keep all my gear except personal effect, rifle and optics, so my coon smell never comes home till the end of a 2 month season.
I’ve found http://www.bear-hunting.com/ which is Bear Hunting Magazine and subscribed to it. Also, you can go back and see what articles where in each past issue and you can purchase these issues. Of course most of the black bear articles were about baiting, but I did find a few articles about spot and stalk and calling blacks. The current issue has one about stalking Colorado blackies.
Want a quick and inexpensive call for Moose? Take an empty 32 ounce coffee can, and make a small slit in the bottom, only about a quarter inch. Then, take one of those really big red rubber bands, the ones that go around big folders. Cut the rubber band to make one long piece.
Now, thread one end of the band and tie a knot on the outside of the can so it won't pull through. Cut the band off on the other side so it is even with the top of the can.
Now, wet your finger,...
