Much has been written about a whitetail’s olfactory advantage. Many hunters have heard statements similar to “a whitetail lives by its nose.” It’s a fact; their sense of smell is the only sense that they trust completely. It’s not a surprise given the unusual gifts that God gave them. The part of the brain that is devoted to measuring and computing smell, in a whitetail, is said to be ONE THOUSAND TIMES larger than the same area in a human’s brain.
WHITETAIL HUNTERS - TRY A LAYERED SCENT STRATEGY!
When it comes to dressing ourselves for hunting, we’re always told to layer, layer, layer. It’s the best way to stay warm when we need to be warm and cool when we need to be cool. Layering makes it easy to adapt to whatever the day’s hunt throws at us. A smart scent control and attractant strategy also works best if thought of in layers, too.
