I don't think the scent would be a problem. That is unless you crack em open in your mouth and spit out the shells, leaving stinkbreath scent all over. I think that eating them would mean lots of movement and lots of crunching.

Get yourself some that are already out of the shell or eat an apple.

I ate them all season last year and saw deer darn near every day. I don't think that is an issue.

Yeah I dont think that they would be a problem. Just dont be making a lot of noise and movement eating them. Not that its much work to eat the little dang seeds, but you all know what I am talking about.

I love sunflower seeds but they give me gas. So I don't eat them while I am hunting.
