Last year I used a lot of the Knight & Hale products that you can get at Wal-Mart are there other products that work any better??

I can't comment on that particular ome but I have a set of carbon jacket, pants and balaclava and I am not so sure it works that well. I have never had the chance. Every single deer was shot without. Go figure! There is a new type that uses silver. Have you heard of that? Sometimes I think stuff like that sells better than it works. The guys that I know that take the most deer just stay down wind and they clean my clock. Htoler, do you use carbon? Do you think it works?

Yeah! Secret Unscented. I even rub it on my feet to keep them from sweating. When your feet sweat you produce scent that your body can't! PEW! and if they don't sweat they will not get cold.
For my clothing, I use Siberian Pine Oil or just wrap them in pieces ofLighter Pine. Soaking my cover all's in Arm Strong BiCarbonate Sodaand then letting them drip dry, works good also.I don't believe in all that over the counter Bolony. The biggest problem we have here are the No See'ums and the Skeetrers. I know, I'm in Fl.

I’m not so sure I buy into all the over the counter scent blocks myself. I think the key is being down wind or up high. I leave my hunting cloths outside for a couple of days prior to hunting. It gets rid of any indoor odors that they picked up while in the house.

I can tell you that Cabela's scentlok works. Clothing i have bibs and jacket and deer came by me down wind between 8 and 60 yds. never knew i was there! They won't stand up under pouring rain fer several hours as being water proof NOT! More than one deer, about 15 of them! Thats lots of noses to beat.
