Smoking.
 
How many of you guys smoke while up in the stand? Does it effect the amount of deer you see at all?

a great majority of the deer i have shot over the past 17 years have been taken during a smoke break or right after putting one out

I used to around 15 years ago. And after I quit that, my success rate shot up. I was downwind of some guys in WV, and could smell thier smoke 50 yards away. Then I chewed cope for the last 15 years in the stand, and gave that up last year.

I think it all depends. Are the deer used to humans? Are they always around smells like that? Does and spikes will come into about anything, but you take a mature buck, I just don't think he will move if he even got a hint of a cig in the area.

It's not the ones that you see after or during a smoke, it's the big ones that you don't see.

Posts like this crack me up. I mean how do you guys know it doesn't affect them? People will always want to justify thier actions.

I'm sure they smell it and most of the time don't like it. Everybody has a story of a deer they saw while smoking or drinking coffee or something, but it's the deer they don't see that's the problem. I'm a half a pack a day smoker and I leave my cigarettes at the cabin when I go out bowhunting. Gunhunting's a different story. Most of the deer I see are running from another hunter and don't have time to wind me anyways. Also I'm just not as passionate about gunhunting.

The jokes on you because you'll never be able to heat that cigarette up enough to reactivate the carbon.;)

Now 50 years old, I quit smoking 12 years ago.
Before quiting4 deer shot. Since quiting now have around
40 deer. You add it up. Deer are afraid of fires and move away.
They also associate cigarette smell the same way. If the wind
is in your face and your hunting a giant green field, let ur rip.
But if your in the woods with swurling winds, why loose a potential
trophy.

I quit 32 years ago. Never smoked in the woods when I did though. Even when the smoke is gone, the stink stays in your hair, clothes, skin and on your breath. It's in your lungs and makes your breath smell like the bottom of a dirty ashtray. It took three weeks after my last cigarette for me to stop coughing up that foul black mucous.[:'(]

When I was a smoker, I killed several deer with a lit cigarette in my mouth......First off, if they smell the smoke they can most likely smell you, and, even if they didn't, I just don't think they're gonna relate the smell of smoke to danger....Unlike human odor.....

That seems a little high to me, if a person smokes a pack a day thats 20 cigarettes I think, thats 140 days off your life each day. You would be dead a couplemonths after you started smoking.;)

I'm just giving you a hard time, It may be 7 minutes off your life for every smoke, that sounds a little more reasonable. Either way it isn't good for you.

Luckily my Scent Lok cigarettes ADD 7 days to my life for every one I smoke, at least thats what the package says and they would never lie to me!!!!!:D:D

Sure you can! Just throw em in the dryer! Says so right on the pack!
Seriously there was a brand way back that had carbon in the filters!

Bigcountry has it. I think that if it is a scent that is a common everydaysmell, like hunting a suburban situation, then it is not as big of a deal. On the flip side, head up on the mountain or hike to the center of a farm tract, and lit one up and it can ruin your day.

Yup. Tareytons had the charcoal filter. The gang I hung out with decided it'd be a good idea for us to switch to them because we thought the charcoal would filter out more of the bad stuff. Then we saw an article in a magazine that ranked cigs on how much tar and nicotine they had and guess what... Tareytons were right on top of the list as worst. Only ones worse were straight unfiltered Camels and Lucky Strikes.

Went back to Marlboros. Good ol' charcoal filtering. LOL

I quit 'em when they went up to 55 cents a pack. Don't have a clue what cigs go for now.

If and when I smoke in the stand,I carry a small container with Scent killer in it to put the butts in then I spray myself with scent killer after words.Seems to work,I dropped my container one morning and a doe stood over top of it and didnt notice it at all.The 9 point behind her didnt seem to mind either until the Muzzy went through his lungs.
