The Bloodhount Test
Here at Fourth Arrow, we know that vapor scent can carry a long way, but we wanted to find out how far away an animal could smell heated vapor scent. We asked our good friend, Tracker John to see how far away his bloodhounds could smell the vapor coming out of our Wyndscent unit.
Tracker John is considered by many to be the best tracker in the outdoor industry. He is a full-time tracker who owns multiple bloodhounds and spends his days training and tracking deer. We sent him a Wyndscent unit and let him put his bloodhounds to work to determine if vapor scent is more effective them pouring deer urine on the ground. “There is no question that the dogs could smell the vapor scent 250-300 yards away,” said Tracker John.
Weather and a variety of other factors can determine how far away animals can smell odors. We are confident that heated vapor scents travel further than scents that are simply dumped on the ground. Watch the bloodhounds put the Wyndscent unit to the test below.
