I went out on the first and the second of april, the only thing i accomplished was getting my gear sopping wet. When it wasnt raining hard it was misting,
then the fog got pretty thick. I didnt see a bear nor could i even get a glimpse of a cougar after whaling on my dieing rabbit call. gonna go back out soon when the weather is nicer!!!
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...
