Scent and K9s....

I always see guys post about scent and how its going to scare k9s away from your sets so I took some pics on set day. My kid handled everything bare handed from traps to sifters and trowels. She also made and lured sets, mock and the real thing. She was in and out of the truck, chewing gum, picking her nose etc. Guess what? We still caught critters the very next day......... Just some food for thought.





School had a two hour delay so she got to check on the way to school....

Re: Scent and K9s....

At least someone in the family can catch fur
Nice pictures

Our daughter and son, at the same age, did the same, with the same results. (30+ years ago)

Re: Scent and K9s....

Yeah, well you can't go comparing Critter to just your ordinary every day kid, that's not fair. Tell her to try doing that in sneakers rather that pink rubber boots and get back to us.
Good job, Dad.

Mine won't be far behind: They liked Daddy's little buck.

Re: Scent and K9s....

Great picks all the way around!!

I wear gloves while setting traps for two reasons:

1. It saves my hands
2. It keeps me from touching traps after I get lure/bait/urine on my hands

Ive set plenty of traps with no gloves and have had little or no problems. I used to crew, spit on the ground, with no issues there either. Ive taken kids, adults that were worse than kids along as well. I do not see how you can go wrong being careful about it, but I do not see it as a deal breaker in the average situation.

I wear pink boots just like that and I never shoot bucks like that, mine must be broken.

Re: Scent and K9s....

Good job Renny, I agree, the scent thing is way overplayed.




I didn't make it to the gym today. That makes five years in a row.

Re: Scent and K9s....


Purple boots catch more fur, I thought everyone knew that. She made that set the day before, with a little help from dad.
But, I do believe there are times, especially later in the season when fox will stand back from sets with too much stink. Early, dumb pups, you could roll around on the ground and it probably wouldn't matter.

Re: Scent and K9s....

Geeze, a coyote the first night after she was all over? Can I borrow her?

Now who was it on here last season I believe, who has an autistic son he took on the line with him? He said the boy made or helped make some weird sets in odd places and actually caught foxes or something.

Re: Scent and K9s....

I just think with the amount of OM light smell in the area of your sets the animals cant detect anything else.

A haiku is just like a normal American poem, except it doesnt rhyme and is totally stupid.
