Questions On Hunting Gear Like Callers,broadheads, Scents, Etc.

Recommended Posts

I just purchased the Flextone Bone Collector series Buck Collector caller and wonder have any one tried this caller? Also if can recommend an all in one caller what would it be? I also have purchased the 100grain Carbon Express Troika ST355555_TroikaST3_486x288.png broadheads and have anyone use this brand or type? I will be using them on my 400grain 20" Parker bolts. Both recommended for my Parker crossbow.

What is you favorite broadheads for budget?

Any other hunting suggestions gear, tips, scents would be appreciated. I'm going the cheap way on clothes and not getting the scent lock so I need the either scent away, scent killer, dead down wind, or something better type of detergent,body antiperspirant. For my long hair do I need something to wash it with to rid regular shampoo smell or just cover the scent? Or should I just buy a kit like Bone Collector Elimination kit that I think have it all? I'm just new to this and lost at the same time.

After that I'm thinking about sticking to my cousin type waffles and scent covers/ doe estrus in the woods. He said he uses something called earth? Or would it matter going with something else like acorn? Going with a different scent cover in the woods a good ideal especially if not far apart from each other, can the deer pick up on the two different scent?

forget about all the the "scent killer" detergents. Go pick up a 10lb bag of baking soda. wash your clothes in it, dry them in it, store them in a bag with it. as for a cover scent people will put pine branches in there plastic storage bag for there clothes, or acorns if there hunting oaks. all this has worked but you still need to play the wind, even if you go through these steps and the wind is blowing at your back and there are deer infront of you, your pretty much screwed. unless its the rut. I have scent lock fleece gear, didnt buy into the gimmic about holding all your scent in. I just bought it because its warm and quiet. i killed a buck a 6 yards wearing realtree camo jeans (20$) and a realtree longsleeve shirt (10$) so dont buy into all the gimmics, get what you want.

Another thing i will do for a scent cover or attractant. If you see a roadkill doe or buck, pull off the road and cut off the scent glands on there back legs. If its a buck, another buck while your hunting may think one is intruding on his territory and check it out. If its a doe and she was in heat it will attract a buck thinking there is a doe in the area. I like to tie them to the back of my boots and drag them to the stand.

best broadhead?

idc what anybody says, but Muzzy 100 gr 3 blade (20$ for 6) has got to be one of the best broadheads (IMO) along with NAP Thunderheads. I've shot Rage 2 blades, Nap Hell razors, thunderheads, etc, etc. Muzzy broadheads are priced well, have very sharp replaceable blades, and a strong tip allowing you to punch through bone easier. A ton of people shoot muzzy, its just a proven head.

really it comes down to preference, maybe some are better quality but really all broadheads on the market will kill a deer as dead as the other. What really matters is shot placement and what will tune best with your set-up.

Playing the wind is the most important thing you can do to have success. Scent elimination helps but priority #1 should be setting up correctly for the wind. I spray myself down with a scent killer before I leave the truck. It does help. I've had better luck with the spray you can get at walmart and not so good luck with the primos spray. As far as the things to walk behind you with I don't use, I think it's gimmick. A good pair of rubber boots along with not walking on a heavily traveled trail will be all you need.

I use muzzy as well. They are relatively cheap compared to others and work just as well if not better. Cutting diameter and blade sharpness are very important.

Calls/rattling seem to work when you have a low ratio of does to bucks. The more bucks in an area the better chance you have of using a call/rattling effectively.

Camo isn't that important, just try to get a pattern that matches pretty close to the area you are hunting. Your clothes don't have to match, most of mine don't. I bought some pants and shirts from walmart last year and they are really nice for what I do.

Ease into your area every time you go, even if you are late. Barreling through the woods to get to the stand will always ruin your hunt. I've walked into more chances being quiet and taking my time than I have being fast and loud.

Last thing, start practicing now until the start of the season. Make sure your crossbow is accurate and you can make an accurate shot.
