I have had many hunting buddies that puff cigars while hunting, never seems to bother the deer. I'd like to see a study, buy my guess would be that, as much as their noses are tuned to 'human scent', I'm not sure they can distinguish between 'human smoke' and all the other smoke out there from woodburning stoves, fireplaces, etc.

ORIGINAL: remingtonshooter1

to young and think its nasty for one thing but my buddy, who is old enough, smokes sometimes and everytimehe smokes in the woods he see's a deer

PS: he smoke swisher sweets
Heard the swishers are the best? I don't think it's a good idea to smoke in the stand. I do know people that have been smoking and then killed a deer.

I quit this year (labor day) and have seen a few more deer than usual. Of course it may just be that I am not moving around as much digging out a smoke, lighting it, etc.

I used to smoke back in the day before I quit. Yes, I killed deer while smoking. However, I did seem to see more when I didn't smoke. I pretty much do the scent-free ritual now.

The only time I smoke is after squeezing the trigger on my muzzleloader.

I dont smoke but I also dont think it is stupid for other people to smoke while they are hunting.
If it does scare away the big one that gives me a chance to shoot it.

For this I thank you Smokers. No I dont think its stupid
