Default Who smokes while they are hunting?

Who smokes while they're hunting? I've seen this asked but haven't seen a poll. I don't smoke, but if I did, I wouldn't while hunting. Just know the deer would smell it from the downwind side, and plus it's extra movement. That big buck may also be coming downwind and smell it and never come past you then.

I smoke, but not while hunting. I have trouble enough holding my farts in let alone give them the scent of smoke

I let myfarts rip lol. Never had a deer spook because of it smelling a fart. One time I farted when a doe was close. Thought it was going to be quiet, but it wasn't lol. She looked around like what the hell was that lol.

It was funny. She looked so confused, but after about a minute, she went back to eating. It took me all I had to keep from laughing out loud.

Obviously, I don't recommend it, but I smoke, and yes, while hunting. This thread made me reflect back through the years, and I believe nearly every buck I've taken since I got out of the service, including four that score between 141"-163 ", I had a cig. lit or just finished it. I'm not concerned with the smell factor because, IMHO, if the buck can smell your smoke, they can smell your scent. That's why I concentrate on finding wind transition areas. The movement/noise involved with smoking is more detrimental, IMHO, while hunting.

I think you underestimate how "loud" smoke smells. When someone that smokeswalks in my office, I smell it instantly. Perfumes and even BO doesn't catch my attention as quickly. I've hunted with my dad for 30 years. We hunt the same way, in the same areas---only difference is that he smokes. I've killed 8 deer over 130", he hasn't killed one. He does whack the heck out of 2 1/2 y/o bucks, though. Most of the places we hunt, we can't see over 100 yds. You can probably get away with smoking more when you can see a long way---and you can definitely enjoy the hunt more if you get to relax with a smoke.
