    Gizmo’s, Gadgets & Whatnots - Coyote John - Predator Hunting

    Gizmo’s, Gadgets & Whatnots

    Do they work?   I would say most probably do not. Take Scent-Lok clothing for example, supposedly impregnated with charcoal to absorb your scent.  If it can cover your scent I wonder why the drug runners coming across our southern border aren’t wrapping their drugs with it.  Well if you have ever seen a drug dog or bomb dog work you would realize that canines can smell through this stuff.  If a domestic dog can smell through it what are the chances that a coyote can.  Honed by generations of survival dependent upon his sense of smell.  Cover scents also fall into this catagory.  The only scent that I use is that of a lure and I use it in conjunction with a decoy.  If I’m using my Jack-In-The-Box, Turkey Feathers, Rabbit Hide or whatever I’ll spray a little, very little, rabbit urine around the decoy.  When Wiley Coyote comes into the call he will see the decoy moving, smell the urine and hear the FoxPro all at about 30 to 50 yards from my position.  His eyes, nose, and ears are now telling him “food”.  I think it more important to pay attention to the wind then pay $200 for clothing and cover scents.  I truly believe most hunting products on today’s market are designed and marketed with your wallet in the crosshairs and not the animals we are hunting.

      I agree John. Playing the wind correctly has always been Rule #1,

      Admittedly, I’ve recently begun using some scent-control clothing - but I don’t hold much faith in any of it.

      A $10 bottle of scent-killing soap/shampoo and boot spray is about the extent of my “scent control” spending. Concealment (camo-clothing) and using the wind is where I prefer to focus my efforts.

      I’m a new guy in this forum but I’ve been bait hunting, calling and generally being a pain in the butt since 1969 here in southern Arizona. I have a friend who used to kennel greyhounds in the late 80’s and he collected female dog in heat urine, mixed it with glycerine, and applied it to a rag next to his old Johnny Stewart electronic speaker( no relation to myself ). He swore that it worked and I observed that it did too unless the bottle was over 2 or 3 weeks old or had been left in the heat at which point it seemed to loose it’s effectiveness.

      Other than that I haven’t ever seen any product, clothing or otherwise, that will make me “scent invisible” to coyotes. Avoid the gimmicks and invest the money saved a good decoy, a better sling or some of that ace bandage stuff that you wrap your rifle with !
