How Deer React to Nose Jammer
As we use Nose Jammer and our field staff reports filter in, we are learning more and more about the product. What we are seeing when you use Nose Jammer is the deer are going to react one of 3 ways. We theorize it has to do with the individual deer and their nasal sensitivity.
The first reaction is no reaction at all. The deer get a snoot full and act as if nothing has happened. This is the most common reaction and the one we want, but is not always the case. Used properly this is how most deer react.
The second reaction is the deer throwing its nose in the air trying to get it back online. They will also search visually for something different in the area. Approximately two in 10 deer will act like this. Their sense of smell has been disrupted, and they are confused but continue about their business, occasionally lifting their head in an effort to test the breeze.
The third reaction is where a deer will actually stomp and blow. About one in 30 deer will act this way. These deer are a little more high strung than most. Their ability to use their nose to detect human odor has been disabled, and they dont know why they are not smelling as well as they did before. You may think that they have winded you, but after you become familiar with the reaction, you will observe that a large percentage of these deer will actually resume their original path and offer a shot opportunity. It is easier to observe this reaction with bucks because of their identifiable head gear, but we have had mature does stomp and blow at us only to track around and be in front of us 30 minutes to an hour later. Their confused reaction fades and they continue about their day, especially if they can see other deer behaving calmly. The deer don't associate being jammed with human presence because they don’t detect human odor. Your stands stay fresh longer and you can confidently move in closer and take more chances than ever before.
Being in the guiding and outfitting business has allowed me to get instant feed back from 4 or 5 clients in the field at a time. This has allowed me to tweak and refine the Nose Jammer formula to where it is today. I am still playing with the chemical makeup and one day hope to have it where every deer shows no sign of being jammed, but for now it's the best insurance you can buy and it is much more effective than trying to smell invisible. Jammer comes with a 100% guarantee of satisfaction, and to date we have had only one can returned by an individual who was blown at and believes he was winded. That’s okay, I have hunted enough to know that nothing is 100% and keeping the Nose Jammer info accurate is my goal. The big red can will improve the number of deer that hunters see and the number of deer that remain unalarmed in their hunting areas through the course of a hunting season making their time in the field much more effective.
