Default Scent Control Plan

Heres the deal. I really want to do a lot more scent control, so i figured id tell you my plan so far. Let me know what you think and add any tips. Let me know if i should add something of leave something out. Here it is:
-Shower in scent-free soap, shampoo, scent-less deodorant
-Wash clothes in scent-free detergent
-Put clothes in scent free bag with earth wafers
-Then put bag in a rubber-maid container
-Place boots and pack in the container
-Spray with scent free spray before going out to hunt

Don't put your boots in w/ your clothes.

Spray your hands w/ scent eliminator before handling your clothes.

Wash all undergarments, and all towels you will use to dry off w/ unscented laundry soap.

Remove the earth wafers ( IMVHO, it's best to smell like nothing)

Wear other clothes than you will be hunting in during your travels. Wash them also in unscented detergent.

Dress in the field.

I have a bit of OCD when it comes to odor control. It's almost like work....[&o]

This is what I picked up on first. It is something that can easily be looked over, but makes sense not to when you think about it

I do every thing mentioned above but when it comes to putting on the scent free deodorant, tell me if I go to far. Beside the pits I put it behind my knees, bend of the elbow, top of back between shoulder blades, behind my ears, crack of my a**, and my crotch. anywhere and everywhere I think might produce scent or sweat, especially in the warmer weather.

I do the exact same thing. It makes sense because where you sweat is where scent producing bacteria will grow.

As far as the deoderant in all the different places, I would put crack of my a$$ after my crothc followed by buya new stick of deoderant each hunt. Thats kind of like reusing toilet paper.

Not if you use spray on deodorant.... I use unscented Right Guard aerosal spray for those regions... It's an antiperspirant and deodorant.
