All I do is drink about three cups of real strong dark roast coffee on my way out. My wife always says that I stink like strong coffee, so I figure that's all the deer can smell too. Hey, it's a natural product.

Wash my hunting clothes (including towels) in Knight& Hale's ultimate body soap (fresh earth scent) and store them in a 30gallon zip-loc bag with a fresh earth scent wafer. I have a couple of towels that are not worthy of using for guests, so I laid claim to them. I shower with fresh earth soap, use arm & Hammer scent free deodorant and toothpaste.I spray myclothes with earth scent prior to walking in the woods and again once I get on stand. No scent-control clothing and have had no problems with deer winding me. I also spray my bow and treestand before heading into the woods.

I agree.. Just poking a little fun at the scent free guys that think its ok to pee out of their stand. Maybe its ok, who knows.

I'm a rifle hunter primarily, even though I thoroughly enjoy a good handgun or bow hunt...

One of my uncles that helped teach me how to hunt once told me: "When you're hunting with a good rifle, scent and sight don't matter, by the time they get in range to see or smell you, they should already be dead." I used to spend a lot of time and effort on my attire and my scents, then I remembered those words and just went back to hunting.

A story I might share...I was stayed an extra night at a friends college apartment a few years ago after a birthday party and ended up sittingin one of his groundblindsthe next morning with borrowed boots and parka, and my rifle (luckily had left it in the truck for the trip)...THe only scent cover effort he EVER used was $4 a bottle scent killer from walmart. I spritzed myself down and headed for the blind. I had about 20 does walk in on me from all directions that morning, some so close I could have jumped on their backs!!! I haven't been too concerned about scent killers since then, even for close range stuff.
