Used cow urine as a cover

Used cow urine as a cover sent for many years, but when elk hunting high pressured areas you need to be able to "run and gun".

Give them a try , you never know what may happen.

I've never worried about them

I've never worried about them and figured that they would be one more thing that you would have to worry about.  The big thing that I do is keep my cammo in a plastic bag with some pine bows for a couple of weeks before the hunt.  Then I don't put them on until I head into the woods.  If I do use any kind of scent I'll usually smear some elk dodo on my boots.  Doing just this I have had elk at 2' and deer at 4'.

I think they are useful. I

I think they are useful. I look back when I was a lot younger and use to dabble them on my camo. Probably not the smartest thing to do but hey, sounded like a good at the time.

Fresh elk dropings works

Fresh elk dropings works great. We also use Elk fire scent, that stuff works great when seting up to cow call a bull into archery range, we use it for cover scent and only spray it on the bushes we are next to. I think i still have a pic of a tree i sprayed some on and after we left a bull ripped the branches off whare it was.

Elk Fire

Its made by Wildlife Research Center, most the stores have it. Basicly it is cow elk urine collected when their in estrus, making it a sexual attractor and we use it during the rut for a little cover scent becuase we go a few days it the backcountry with out a good bathing. I wonder if we smell like nasty a$$ to them::eek:
