    You must get busted a lot if you never see the elk first.

    do you know where I hunt? how thick it is? I want the scent to help cover up anything that might help. Has nothing to do with no seeing them.

    No, I don't know how thick it is, but I hunt in heavy timber 100% of the time, and I never found a need for scents. I guess if it works for you. I sure wouldn't want to spread elk piss on me. I smell bad enough now.

    Here's where I hunt. Down in that timber.

    We all do what works for us and if the added advantage helps why not? Your in Colorado with more elk then any other state. Don't think its hard to kill one there. This is a hunting site for all hunters to help out each other not piss one another off. We all ask for info on these sites, If we were all as great as hunters as some on theses sites act like we wouldn't need to ask. So don't post smart ass comments.

    Smart ass answer goes both ways.

    If you think killing an elk here is easy, you should look at the stats. 20% success. Come try it in ML season with iron sights.

    I don't cater to the sensitive types. I figure hunters are not thinned skinned, and can handle a little truth.

    It's fine to hide your scent without smelling like the animal you're hunting. I file that under unfair advantage.

    Do you think the elk in the video I posted didn't smell that hunter? He didn't spook until the hunter moved.

    you file it anyway you want. I know nothing about the video, wind direction, if they used scent blocker or scents. Its not the same everywhere. All im saying is if there is advantages to use why not use them with out others talkin shit? You do what works for use but don't criticize how or what others do.
