Default Homemade scent killers/cover scents

I know there were a few people who had recipes for this stuff, just wondering if a couple of you could post up your recipe or post up a link to sources you know of. Thanks everyone!

Thanks Bruce!

-Is the Shampoo necessary for this? I don't recall seeing it last time I saw someone post up their homebrew recipe...

I use the shampoo anyway when I take a shower before hunting so I have it. Don't know if it's required or not but I used it. One of my dogs got into a bit of skunk (a couple of times)and this stuff worked great in de-scenting him LOL .

I can't confirm or deny, but it's been said that the normal 3% (brown bottle) peroxide that you get in the store has some sort of smell to it that is associated with a stabalizing agent that they put in it. I don't know if that is true or not, but I go to a pool supply company and buy the 27% stuff and dilute it down to the 3% using distilled water.
The rest of my recipe is exactly as stated below and I think it works well.

Good luck.

Here's a twist, something dead and decaying around you stand, could be an animal or vegitation like bales of straw. A farmer piled some rolls near a stand of mine once, I found out that way.

There's a reason animals roll in dead things, could be it.
