whats really funny is they all will go to all that trouble. and the first thing they do when they get to their stand is take a piss. kinda defeats the whole purpose of scent control from then on......

I too am very careful with scent control and I am a big believer in Scent Lok after sitting on top of deer for the last three years. But, the wind hunters are correct. If you have the luxury of several stands or large tracts of land where you can hunt the wind, that is clearly the best strategy. About the only scent control you need then is rubber boots. Unfortunately for the last three years I have had one stand in a 4 acre tract surrounded by other leases, but I managed to see 60 deer with about 10 different bucks and shot several does and one 2.5 year old buck.

I have a portable shower I pull behind my pickup and take a shower where I park. That eliminates "house smells". I have bows and clothes that I leave at each stand. I walk nude to the stand, climb up and dress. I wear light rubber gloves when handling my bows so no bodily scent is transferred to my bows. I use a carbon mask that filters my breath when I exhale. I spray carbon blast on a tampon and insert it in case I fart.

before theseason I wash all my clothes in scent blocker laundry detergent, then put in a huge rubbermaid container that has weatherstripping around the edge to seal out all scent.....then after I am all dressed I spray down with scent shield white lightning.Then after 5 or so hunts I reactivate the carbon in the dryer and wash the other clothes
