I don't smoke nor do i chew, but my good hunting buddy chews every time he's up in the stand. I don't get it?! He chews and he is still successful nearly 75% of the time we go out. I thought smoking and chewing and the like would scare the deer away. I'm sure smoking does, but I think you can get away with chewing. Just don't swallow!

I don't dip at all, but 3 of my good buddies do all the time and are always killing!
Maybe I should start!

i always have a dip in when i'm hunting. usually copenhagen or some sort of natural dip. I dont think deer are scared of the smell of snuff spit or snuff itself. I hunt out of a groundblind for deer and i spit all over the ground and ive had deer sneak up on me from 5yds and not give a crap about my snuff. It just doesnt feel right to me to go out in the woods without a dip. I'm usually more successful also when i have a big dip in. must be my good luck charm. [8D]
