Season 8 Episode 8

Tip Of The Week

Staying with the deer season theme this week one word comes to mind “Scent”. Most people tend to think smell or scent isn’t that important when hunting deer. Here is a fact for you. Humans have about 5 million olfactory cells, while dogs have around 220. Deer on the other hand have around 297 olfactory cells. The smallest scent will alert them. So use unscented detergent, hunt upwind and avoid eating breakfast in your hunting clothes or smoking in them.
