Default When do you put on your hunting clothes?

Simple poll with only 3 questions. Feel free to tell how and what you do before and after reaching the stand site when it comes to putting on your camo, using scent control, etc.

I dress after parking: I was told that fumes from inside the car and obviously at home will get on your clothes so I have just done that ever since.

For me it varies, either at Home or where I park. It wouldn't make sense to me to change at the stand

I usually get dressed after I park. Mostly, anyway. I wear my first layer or two then blue jeans and a shirt over those. This year, however, I will wear my first layer or two then a set of uninsulated coveralls that have been washed in scent free detergent over them. I'll strip those off and put my outer layers on then...

combination of two choices for me ...... when I park I put on some, depending on temp, I then pack in the rest of my clothing, as I have an uphill mile walk .....

At the stand makes sense if you are only putting on the last layer at the stand so you don't work up a heavy sweat while on your way to the stand.


I have done this in the past with GREAT succes.


I marked after parking because that is the norm for me.

Sometimes more than just the last layer for me ..... I walk through mostly field, so I move ..

If I was in a more populated area I would be arrested.
I always dress after parking my truck , trying to stay about 30 feet or so upwind of it. And I mean I put everything on. I strip down ( standing on a 2 ft square piece of rubber) from my driving clothes and put on my base layers and outer layers that are stored in a SL duffel bag.
It gets a lille chilly sometimes, but i feel it's worth the trouble.
