Default Dipping while hunting

Does dipping while hunting effect the deer? I know smoking does but does dip really put off that much odor?

It probably does put off quite a bit of odor, since most of your odor originates from your mouth. But I do it on all day sits and just use a spitter. I take 3 bottles for long sits, water bottle, spitter, and pee bottle.

I dont think it does cause almost all my uncles dip while in the deer stand and they always have success, They spit in a bottle though. So that may be the reason

I think it all depends on how you play the wind. I have smoked a cigarette while on all day sits and then seen deer upwind. It all boils down to the wind.

I dip and spit but what I usually try to do is spit downward onto a tree branch to soften the noise. I've had deer this season within 8-10 yards and they don't seem to mind it much.

I always buy apple blend during season...seems to bring them in..J/K. I use skoal and don't really spit much at all, I don't worry about the smell.

I honestly think your movement spitting is prob worse then any smell it puts off.

popeandyoungchaser.....for your sake I hope you never mix up those bottles..I mean peeing in the spit bottle may be ok but I wouldn't want to mistake the other 2 for the drinking bottle.
