As it relates to a whitetail's vision or hearing, a hunter can do a lot to control what a deer sees and/or hears simply by limiting their own movement and staying quiet. However, controlling scent is an entirely different beast and one that is much harder to self-contain. Buddy Piland is the president of Ozonics and he joins The Revolution this week to talk about managing your scent signature to better fool the nose of the animal you are pursuing.
A whitetail's nose is its greatest sense and the primary one they lean on as a defense against predators. These olfactory senses are so heightened that deer have 800 times more receptors in their nose than humans do. With a sense of smell that is so enhanced, hunters always have to be aware of their scent and how it is being dispersed into the environment around them. Getting the wind in your favor while in the field is a must in order to control that scent, but there are other ways to help manipulate the scent signature you're leaving behind. Buddy has been hunting with ozone for more than 17 years now and has seen over and again the power of ozone in eliminating scent via Ozonics products. It always comes back to science, Buddy says, the right amount of ozone in the right concentrations will always kill bacteria, which is what human odor is. Listen in as Buddy talks about what ozone is, the technology used in Ozonics units to produce ozone and how that ozone destroys odor causing bacteria so animals can't tell you're in the woods with them. Buddy also highlights how to use Ozonics most effectively by setting the units up in such a way that the ozone being created will flood your downwind side and mix with your human odor to control your scent. Buddy also talks about some of the toughest animal noses to fool and the beneficial use of Ozonics units from hunting everything from big game to predators.
Watch "Ozonics Killer Winds" on Sportsman Channel, Sundays at 5:00 p.m. ET to see how ozone technology can elevate your hunting game and make you more invisible in the woods.
