Win73,

A lot of it depends on the state you are in and the hunting pressure that has been on the deer in the area. Last week while deer, pig and coyote hunting in Texas the following happened. I will also add that the deer where I hunt are also very curious of anything. I was watching two does and a young spike buck when they went instantly on full alert! Then all looked in one direction and kept staring. Then tails went up with the normal huff huff sounds broadcasting danger or fear and they all three ran away. Watching closely I saw a big coyote. I shot the coyote with my 6.5 Grendel and killed the Yote. In 15 minutes here came all three of the deer back to the original location. (Curiosity since they still had never seen me or winded me. Stomping their feet and coming near they were walking around smelling the air and approaching cautiously. But they did come back.

To stop predators, I once saw on tv or read some where that taste is the greatest method. Smell and taste trigger memories the best. Based on this concept farmers/ranchers would sacrifice a lamb or calf and then poison the carcas. The wolves or coyotes would get deathly ill, but not die. And since taste and smell are the greatest triggers to memory, they wont even think about attacking the same animal because or the horrible poisoning experience.

It works on us as well. If we have a stomach bug that we dont know about then go to eat. Later we get sick then we blame it on the food. Based on that smell/taste trigger if someone suggests going out to eat at the same place or eating the same food in the future your responce is usually "Their food makes me sick." Even though their food probably didnt do it, but that trigger is hard to break.

If you are in the business, I guess that makes a lot of sense.

If you like ridding the area of these pests, then it's kind of counter productive.
