yep, play the wind. I have had more deer come from downwind than I can shake a stick at. that's fine if rifle hunting from a distance.


I use scent away products liquid body soap, have had no issues of dryness.

Hunter Specialties Scent-A-Way Antibacterial Liquid Soap is advertised as having moisturizer added to it. Scent soaps alone won't hide your smell though playin the wind is still the best bet.

Sure being scent free helps. But think about it, you wash in scent free soap and shampoo and it usually has washing soda or baking soda ingrediant. Which is sodium bicarbonate it does elimiminate odours but it also opens up hair and skin pours in humans, doesn't close them.I In order to be scent free you need your skin and hair pours closed or you will taking on scent, the minute you jump in your vehical or sit down to eat or wherever you stop before you hunt.The best thing to do is wash in this stuff and then saturate yourself in a hunting scent this will close your pours imediately after you shower.So shower and apply your Deer scent directly on you, and stink up your house and piss the wife off reapply the minute you get into the field and keep applying.I don't know how far you are willing to go to kill big gamebut for me there are a couple of limitations.You have to know how this stuff works on humans and don't jump to the conclusion that baking or washing soda works all the time.It does get you scent free but it also opens up your pours to take on any new odours soon after.So I'm gonna tell you what I do I shower with baking soda in extemely hot water this wil really open up the skins
pours, and then turn that water to extremely cold to close them.It's not ideal perfect solution but if you keep yourself clean and cold drive without heat, when you get to the field warm yourself up and them apply your scent when your pours open up.
