a friend of mine came from Miami to visit so i took him out to see few critters , now he is gone to Jasper and Banff national park so i came back.
the trip was good , seen few bears and few elk cows but unfortunately not too many bulls , although i did see one the last minute but was too far to take pictures of him, he was 7x7 so it's all out war with this guy come hunting season.. can't wait !!
I like hunting all critters specially Elk and bears, how about u ?
now that elk hunting season is about to start i will stick around elk forum and will be posting lots of pictures from scouting trips until season begin. but i am definitely gonna be after the monster bull i saw yesterday , and until i get him it's gonna be a long wait ,)
glad you're back!
I have never hunted outside of my hometown, so the #'s of critters I chase is limited mainly to whitetails, turkeys, quail, pheasant, small game, and an occasional coyote or bobcat that might wander by while deer hunting. I have a great interest in expanding my choice of game. However at the moment I'm pretty tied down with family life, which I don't mind at all. My day will come and I'll get to enjoy it with my kids if they choose I have had some great invites to try some new places so that day may be closer than I think I'd love someday to have a shot at a bear, elk, muley, pronghorn, moose, you name it I just like the aspect of being in the woods.
When it comes to scent, there are basically two types; those that attract and those that mask. I've tried both on many occasions. There are lots and lots of "doe in heat" scents, designed to attract a big buck into range. I've also used a "cow in heat" scent while elk hunting.
Another scent would almost be better named as a "coverup smell". The main goal is to cover up human odor or mask it. Though I don't believe you can ever totally eliminate all human...
