Burlap is a natural nature smell, it's made from plant fiber!

10-4, Berry! Before all these camo clothing, we use to wear Burlap Feed Bags with two holes cut out for eyes and two large holes for the arms!

I had to replace the blind material on my stand last week. I had a piece of camo burlap in the basment it had gotten wet and had a strong burlap and mildew smell. I installed the burlap while hunting one evening over my food plot. That same night I had many pictures of deer on my trail cam. I thought I wouldn't be able to hunt at this stand till the burlap aired out but the deer didn't seem to care.

Leave it out in the rain before you bring it to the woods to your stand.
