Check wind direction and then decide where I will hunt accordingly.

I just put my hunting clothes out in the sun/wind for a day or 2 before I hunt, and get up high enough in the tree. I don't think I have been busted because of my scent yet, although I am still quite new to this.

I also try to not get sweaty heading into the stand...better to be cold walking in and warm when in the stand.

I spray down head to toe with scent killer. I wash all my clothes with scent free/killer soap. I take a bath in the scent killer body wash. i store all my clothes in a tot. Then change at the field. I have had deer down wind of me and not even think i was there. one time it was two does and the next 4 does and a button buck

amen to that..
ever since i became SUPER disciplined about my scent and invested in some scent blocker gear.. my sighting on deer and other odd animals has quadrupled..

we are talking about deer conducting a deer union meeting 20 ft underneath my feet,, talk about the feeling of being pinned to your stand...

I wet my finger and hold it up to determine wind direction. Then I pick a spot based on wind direction. The only scent control I do is so I don't have to sit there and smell myself.

Clothes are washed in baking soda and hung on the line to dry and air out. I shower with scent away. Usually put clothes on when I get to my spot (definitely when I take the wifes vehicle, I don't want to smell like a french fry in the stand) Play the wind when I get out there.

Wash clothes with Dead Down Wind, dry with DDW...wash with scent control before doing the switch and removal from the drier. Watch the weather night before, and morning to determine gameplan. Shower with DDW,....and put on base layer scent control. Once parked, spray head to toe scent control on base layer, and then put on the outer layer. Take one last swig of coffee, lite up a smoke, and walk in.
