Default Scent lok-who has never spent a dime on it?

Just curious, who has never bought into this concept. I'll be the first to admit that I'm one.

I'm 3 ,we've hunted for years and years without it and had great success ,I beleive if you keep clean and use the scent and scent killer's it 'll do the job .

I haven't yet, mainly due to cost. If you could get a suit for $100, then I would try it.

I do plan on trying the contain line this season.

No. I figure I did just fine without it the 35 years I'd hunted before it came out. I don't need it now.

Well, I am one of the ones who does buy it. In fact I am on my 3rd set. I believe in the stuff enough to drop $400 on the cabelas MT050 gore tex scent lok suit. I don't believe it is a cure all but I do believe it helps. I won't try to convince anyone that it works though. I just relay my postitve experiences with it.

The big mistake people make using it is they dont dress and un dress in the field and store it in an air tight container. They want to complain it don't work. If they stop and think for a minute and use a little common sence they might be able to figure it out.

Another mistake people make is putting cover scents in the air tight tube with their scent lok. Really come on how smart of a move is that. The carbon adsorbs the scent of the cover leaving the suit useless for odor control untill reactivation.

Just my 2 cents.

I did buy it 5 years ago. I did have deer bedding below my treestand, etc. After 4 years, it seemed more of a hassel (more sweating) than it was worth. Last season I did'nt use it and had no ill effects. I attribute whatever success I had with it as learning to be a better hunter. JMO
