Deer Breaking Scents

Just wondering if anyone has used deer breaking scents and whether or not they work. Just got a bottle of Hawbaker's, but haven't used it with the beagle yet.

Release the hounds!!!

Never used it... If I see a pup taking an interest in following a deer I correct the behavior. Give the dog all the deer he can handle and keep making correction... They will get the picture.

Same here, just use a shock collar and find some deer in a field. If they have half a brain they won't do it again.

I've read that unless a hound is really dumb, it only takes once or twice with a shock collar.

I will soon see.

I can vouch that running them down and tanning there hide like in the old days is not nearly as effective.

Re: Deer Breaking Scents

Never heard if anyone having them work...Tritronics or sportdog is ur best bet of breaking them.

Re: Deer Breaking Scents

never had the scent work as in bottled scent. i have had luck with using hock glands and settling up "situations" for young dogs. mouse traps for pups.....rat traps for bigger dogs. then a time or 2 with a shock collar and they are good util they get bored or you run them with the wrong dog. they all need a tune up now and then. well most anyway.

Now your diggin' where the 'tators are!

Re: Deer Breaking Scents

our coon dogs are broke off deer scent before they know what a deer is....

we hang glands on the electric fence around the farm...when they are running free they eventually find it...sniff it..and never wanna sniff it again....

if we have one that wants to run a deer by sight they get an e-collar and turned loose on deer in a field..if they run them they get educated...typically only takes once if you do it right..

ive never seen any results from bottled scent..whether its training or critter is always best IMO...
