Although staying upwind is the best way to prevent game from detecting you, this trick won’t always work by itself. When you pair D/Code scent elimination with strategic treestand placement based on wind direction, your odds for sealing the deal on a trophy buck are unmatched.
Much of the buzz from the Code Blue booth at the 2017 ATA Trade Show came from Code Blue’s D/Code scent elimination line, which includes everything from field spray and field wipes, to laundry detergent and shampoo/body wash.
We at Code Blue are passionate about the great outdoors, and in an effort to preserve the tradition of hunting, we have enrolled in the Archery Trade Association (ATA) Deer Protection Program to help prevent the spread of chronic wasting disease (CWD) in wild deer, elk and moose.
A mature whitetail buck is a pretty calm, confident animal. Low-keyed in the shadows, big bucks use instinct and the experience of past seasons to stay out of sight. Just food, water and a comfortable bed – that’s all it takes to satisfy a big buck. UNTIL FALL COMES!
Every hunter knows that deer have a remarkable sense of smell, but just how well can they smell? While there is no research offering specific measurements of a deer’s olfactory abilities, Steve Ditchkoff, professor in wildlife ecology and management at Auburn University, says it’s estimated that a deer can smell at least 1,000 times better than a human.
It is hot and humid now, but in a few short months we will be up in our tree stands looking for a fresh, new set of antlers. The work put in during the summer months can be very rewarding but don’t overlook getting as scent free as possible when running around in the deer woods this offseason. Whitetails know how to adapt and detect danger. Don’t let the deer pattern you this summer and take into consideration these Summer Scent Control Tips.
Despite the unpredictability of the pre-rut, which falls sometime during the last weeks of October or into early November throughout much of the country, many hunters agree that it’s a great time to hunt whitetails. Travis Creekbaum, host of “The Chase” with Leigh and Travis, affirms that there’s a broad range for the pre-rut, dependent upon many different circumstances, but he also offers some well-tested tips for buck-hunting success.
