    I was wondering if any of you yote hunters use cover scents. I have heard that bobcat and rabbit urine work well. Any tips and techniques would be helpfull.

    Thanks, Carl

    There are some techniques that are called "Misting" that are used in order to confuse and stall the coyote. But the nose of a coyote is such that using cover scents really won't matter.

    You could dump a bag of rotten food on the ground, and if the coyote knew what they were, it could probably pick out every individual scent in a very short time.

    That in effect is what misting is. It is a way to confuse and pauses a coyote that is already downwind. The problem is, you might only get half a second before that coyote realizes what is happening. But that may be all you need. :shrug:

    I believe that anything I can do to increase my odds is worth it. But the chance of spilling that crap over everything is not. :up:

    DashForCash -

    I use Buck Beads "Nasty Natural Red Fox" scent shaker when predator hunting. I bought it at Southtown Sporting Goods in Fayetteville but have not seen it anywhere else but you can find it on Buck Stop's web site at http://buckstopscents.com/ . One bottle will last a long time.

    It seems to work for me. It is in crystal form so it will not spill and damage your e-caller or whatever. I sprinkle some around my FoxPro when I set it out and have had coyotes come within 3 yards of the caller and stare at the caller as if confused. I also sprinkle some in front of where I set up with the theory that it may confuse a yote for a few seconds so I can get a shot?

    FYI,

    I wouldnt worry about using any. Just stay downwind as best you can. You wont beat their noses.

    Thats just me, I may be wrong. :up:
