RE: should I put scent blocker on my bow.

Also keep sprays away from the arrow rest and your arrows or you risk making noise when you draw.

RE: How far is your scent trail?

Around 200 yards I guess but I always start at my stand then loop around upwind and back. I don't trust which way they'll follow the trail.

RE: dragging a scent trail

Great tactic! This early in the season, buck scents work best. James Valley's Wallhanger is a real good one. Closer to the rut, switch over to doe in heat scents.
