Scent Control Research (Need your help)

Recommended Posts

Do what works for ya.

I've had deer bust me from 75 yards after spraying down and wearing everything I own to eliminate odor. I've had deer walk directly under me while on the cell phone, smoking a cigarette in a pair of heavy $30 coveralls, (seriously). My guess is that some of the same type stuff has happened to everyone that sits in a tree stand. I'm a firm believer that stand height and wind direction have more to do with being busted than five or six hundred dollars worth of carbon, charcoal, sprays, non scent toothpaste or anything else you can spend money on. If you get lucky enough to put your stand on the downwind side of the deer, 15 feet high and see deer, you'll enjoy the hunt. Everyone says "place" your stand on the "downwind" side.... How exactly does anyone know in advance which direction a deer is coming from... I do understand "most likely", but then they turn right around and tell you to put out "doe or buck scent". don't that stuff end up going "downwind", exactly where "your" scent is going? We are making a great day in the woods way too complicated.

- ScentLok

2- What is the brand of scent control garment that you have purchased within the last year?

- ScentLok

3- What was the main reason for your selection of this brand?

- All 4, but mainly because of the 'Price".

4- What type of odor control are you most interested in?

- Adsorption

- Now, with that said, I find out that the ScentLok product works best with the Primos Silver XP scent elimination products. Any suggestions or different point of view?

I prefer scentlok i havent bought any in the last year but i am buying the head hunter jacket from them before wisconsins bow season. I like them for the simple reason of comfort. They do the job they are asked to do.

After hundreds of dollars and years of blowing money on that I've decided that it's all crap and a waste of my money. I still get busted with it just as often as with cotton military camo on. I wash my clothes in baking soda and water, bathe in scent free soap use fresh earth scent when I get out of my truck and when I get to the stand. I spend $10 a year on scent control now and when the season is left over my wife has extra baking soda for the baking.

1. Scentlok and scent blocker

2.scent blocker/ dream team pack

3.price scent performance and recommendation

4.antimicrobial and adsorption

And I'm going to also add that I agree with John.... I have been using the baking soda trick as well and I have taken at least two deer every year I buy tags.... My uncle taught me this trick years ago.... Also I use film canisters with a rag strip hanging out of the bottom as a scent tag to cover up whatever odor I missed
