No - never owned one.

Not disagreeing with the message for the most part - just the holy delivery.

If you have spent ANY time in the woods, you would know that deer CAN smell you!! And I know that sometimes when I dont was my clothes in that scent remover stuff, I get busted more often.

And camo!! Are you retarted? Even if deer ARE color blind the pattern from the camo still blends you in with your surroundings.

The terrain around you is #1 factor when it comes to swirling winds. If you're hunting hogs from a tripod there's probably no trees or you are on a field edge so the wind stays steady all day, but if you were bow hunting a draw or ridge top in a big woods the winds gonna move around due to thermals, terrain, etc. I always put the wind in my favor, But the less scent i take in to my stand, the better my chances are of not getting busted, and its payed off more than once.

I agree with most of what has been said. Most hunting shows are just 30 minute infomercials, peddling crap! I disagree with the notion that scent and camo are not important though! Camo is important to breakup your outline, but cheap camo IS just as good as any other camo. As for scent control, nothing is better than playing the wind, but it helps to be as SCENT FREE as possible! That said, the biggest ripoff in hunting sales is "scent control clothing!" 50 cents worth of good old "Arm & Hammer" beats 'em all!
