Lazy rosies just want to eat and lay around lol. I would hope their really plump, they got all that food in such a wet surroundings, pretty dry over here compared to the coast. And then they Rockys gotta work in the harsch winters.
I grew up hunting "Cascade Roosevelt" on the northwest side of Mt Rainier, then West-side.
Headed over the hill for Rocky Mtn for 20 years,I now am hunting Coastal Washington for "True Roosevelt" probably never go back, as I like the coast, and the fact that I find the elk in the same place every year, they do not move as much as RM.
Although the dense brush makes actually getting a shot more difficult.
competition with other hunters is lower, you have to get out of your truck and hunt.
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...
