Default Sealing Ground Blind

I bought an el-cheapo 49.00 AmeriStep Grizzly 20 ground blind for deer hunting last year. Much warmer than a tree stand in northern ME! I've got a question about seam sealing the blind. One day last fall my buddy and I were sitting in pouring rain / sleet nice and dry except for the constant dripping of water through the seams. Still beats a tree stand for days like that, but I was wondering if there was a low scent or scent free tent seam sealer. Thats probably an oxymoron. Or have others just gone ahead, sealed them and not have the scent bother?

Every year I re-seal my bird hunting chaps with a silicone spray.

that stuff says scent free when dry. Never heard of Franks Outdoors before. Might have to try that out.

I did a google search and Frank's came up.
I have never heard of this place either, I bought mine from Cabela's.
It's only $5, not gonna keep you from sending your kids to college or anything, right?!! (ha-ha)
Almost the cost of a gallon of gas, yikes!
