Default scent killer

What scent killer brand do you use and why?

I saw tinks had a new one out and I know DDW is out there and a few others.

I use the hunter specialty at walmart mainly because IT WORKS, it is cheap, and easy to get right down the road should I run out. being a big boy and I go crazy with the spray I RUN OUT.

I have had dead up wind, down wind, walk circles around me, winds change directions running around me in every direction, and have NEVER had a deer I saw bust me for scent. I had a doe last year I missed walk a circle around me and not know I was there. SO IT WORKS

Actually it reduces your scent but doesn't eliminate it. Nothing completely eliminates your scent. If a deer gets downwind of you and in the path of where your scent is blowing you will be scented. Sometimes your scent will blow right over a close deer if you are in a stand. In the am thermals can carry your scent straight up and away. The conclusion you are drawing from observations is incorrect.

I've always used HS products - haven't seen any reason to change yet.
