Re: Fooling Deer Smell with the Sweaty T Shirt Trick
October 30, 2019 at 2:47pm
Very interesting. At first hear I dismissed the idea, but upon further review, there may be merit to it. The question I ponder is: does the sweaty t-shirt simulate the day in/day out presence of a farmer? I think you could argue that it does in the most important respect..smell. Kind of like bringing a noisy 4 wheeler, truck, etc to refill a feeder. If you do it for a while before season and the deer follow the Pavlov pattern of associating the noise with a treat, then the noise actually brings deer to the area. Ask any Texas deer hunter if that happens. I\'ve seen deer come running to and following a jeep carrying feed in a pull behind trailer in Texas hill country. I\'d love to hear if others have had success with this t-shirt thing. Also the pics were in snow, obviously not near here. Have you had success locally trying this method? Brilliant idea though.
