Scent control while turkey hunting????

Discussion in 'Turkey Hunting General' started by swmo, Apr 10, 2006.

  1. Just got to thinking about this after we had 5 deer walk 10-20 yards of us and then being spooked were guessing by our scent. I know alot of people focus on scent control and there's several products out there for it during deer season but you don't hear alot of people talk about it during turkey season. I know it's not as important for the turkey's in general, but in the case if you have some deer walk in on you while your working a big tom and the deer spooks and then scares off the turkey as well you s.o.l. This is almost what happened to us this yesterday and might of contributed a little to why the tom just didn't committ to our li corner of the field.

    Oh well, just ramblin' and givin' us all something to think about because I know I've been thinkin' about it.

    I've had deer in the same fields as turkey before. The deer would catch my stink, snort, and run off. The turkeys would react by running/jumping about ten feet, stand at attention for a few seconds, then go right back to what they were doing.
