How might animals respond when hunting with Ozonics

Proper setup and application of your unit is primarily a game of two factors: TIME and CONCENTRATION.

- Depending on correct setup and the environmental challenges present, you may see different animal responses when hunting.

No response:

- No reaction from the animal is the most common response.

- When the odor you release into the scent stream encounters enough ozone (concentration factor) for long enough (time factor) to destroy all of your scent—no animal response is the result.

The animal smells “something.”

- This is a relatively common response, though it’s not always clear whether animals are reacting to altered human scent molecules or detecting an unusual void in odors altogether.

- The animals will sense something and use their nose to test the wind to determine what it is. In most situations, such animals will continue on with normal behavior, though they might continue to test the wind and look toward the hunter’s position.

- A small number of animals will become curious and further attempt to determine what they smell. Some will not be curious and will leave the area—but they will not “bust.”

On very rare occasions, when properly set up, an animal might still wind a hunter:

- There are some exceptional environmental conditions, such as very high or extreme swirling winds, where your time and concentration factors are reduced to the point that a single HR unit cannot produce enough ozone (concentration factor) and keep it in the downwind area long enough (time factor) to destroy, alter, and reduce your released odor to the point the animal doesn’t become alarmed.

- However, under nearly any hunting conditions, with the right setup of your Ozonics HR Unit, the number of animals that bust from winding a hunter will drop dramatically.
