Scent with snow

Unread postby Hildebrand » Thu Nov 14, 2019 1:27 am

Hi, and good morning! With the gun opener set to start Friday here in Michigan and snow on the ground I had a question. How does our scent trail work with the snow on the ground ? Is is the same with no snow? Is that ground scent still stuck there like normal ? What about after the snow melts ? Does the ground scent dissipate with the snow ?

Yeah my lion hunting buddies always wanted snow. The dogs could smell the track better on snow than dry ground!! But they hated the melt!

Interesting. It makes sense though if you think about it.
