I always get a kick out of guys who say "Hunt the Wind" and you don't need it. Scent is an all or nothing thing. I control mine by any and all means I can and if you don't you might as well not even bother doing anything. I have yet figured out how to be able to keep all the Deer upwind from me. Rattling, calling, decoy setups, etc. Deer invariably will end up downwind at some point. You better hope you have an edge or 2 or that hunt is busted. I watched hundreds of deer from my Treestand/Blind this year hunting IL. and NE. I was only winded a couple of times and never was it to where the Deer just blew out, rather they knew something wasn't right and moved off. I always setup with the wind to my advantage as best I can but I had many deer end up down wind of me anyway. It did not cost me this year. That's why I believe in a strict scent control regimen, which in my case does include scent blocker.

You are right but some people figure there superman with this stuff on and don't think they have to hunt the wind at all! The stuff works but you've still gotta use common sense.

Hey Everyone.
I do want to clear something up this thread is for a choice of one or the other. This is not a thread that we'll use to decide whether it works or not or whether you hate the clothing or if it's to pricey. We have seen 1000 of those threads on this sight and they just turn ugly. I surely don't want to go that route here. We all know about the law suit and we all have our opinions.

Thanks

Enjoy the Thread!

I have some of each, but more of Scent Blocker. I don't really have a preferrence because I suspect neither one helps much. If deer get down wind of you and conditions are wrong, you will get winded. I do like the clothes, though. I think the tight fabric does more to control scent than the small amount of carbon in them.

I use to use scent lock, I don't anymore. The camo just sits in a tub now a days!!!!! I'm a firm believer in Scent free clothes wash and a scent free shower!!!!

I believe that it buys you that extra 10-20 seconds for the shot. Answer to your question is i like scentblocker better only because i like there style of clothing line better than scentlock
