I have taken a Crap in a 5gal bucket and place by the tree and deer have come up to investigate the Oder. That doesn't smell like nothing in the woods, believe me!

I don't smoke anymore , but I've had plenty of deer walk up right after I finished a cig or while I was smoking it . Unless they associate that particular smell with danger it doesn't seem to bother them . Deer are very curious by nature .

I have a buddy that smokes and hunts off the ground and usually gets on every year.. BUT he has never shot a deer of any size.. Theyhave all been small, younger deer.

I have been sitting on the ground with my back against a tree and had 2 come up so close to me that I could have hit them with my hand. I don't think that it bothers them at all. Soon after that,I took a decent buck. I am hunting the same place this year and I think that I should have a good shot at taking a nice buck this year.

Remember the basics about being scent free!! You can't be scent free if the wind is carrying your smoke down wind and your cloths smell of smoke because you lit up in the truck or car while driving to where you're going to hunt. If people can smell cigarette smoke on you, so will the deer. Will it always spook them?I don't know. It's easy for me since I don't smoke anymore. And yes you're right, reformed smokers are the worst critics. I don't know about using 'Skoal' so I'll reserve comment.But if smoking and/or chewing makes your day enjoyable, then enjoy!! Just my 2 cents worth.

What's worst than smoking on stand is,

1. Wearing your hunting boots before going to your hunting site. You stop and get gas and are stepping where gashad been spilled.
2. Then you decideyou have to go to the Rest Room and step on a urine soaked floor.

If you watch the Tree Lounge Instructional Videos, they demonstrate with a Orange Smoke Bomb at 20-30' and the smoke never comes down to the ground.

The only time I would not smoke is when I was still hunting or in a ground blind.
