cost efficent way to get rid of scent

What do you guys use to get scent off clothes and your body that isn't super high priced?

If your ever stressed just take a day off and go fishing.

I don't believe there is any way to get scent free. You have to play the wind every time you set up.

I keep my hunting clothes aired out as much as posible but wind direction is one the most important things I consider when picking stand location.

Yup, after washing everything with baking soda and hanging them on the line to dry. I've been doing it forever and it seems to work.

Alrighty then!

I was out hunting on Monday evening and didn't like the set up as the wind was blowing to where I thought the deer would come from. Due to the property that I hunt being rather small and mostly field, I didn't have many other options to set up different. Two fawns and a doe come out and the fawns were feeding. I watched the mama sniff and new she smelled me even 50 yards away wearing scent shield and all that good crap. She easily busted me and knew I was there without seeing me and skirted out around where I couldn't shoot.

There is no covering your scent no matter how many gimmicks you use. Doing some may help, but hunting the wind is the only way to go.

Ok, I used to do the same thing, years ago, but, hey, what if you hunt an area that has no pines. You then smell out of place.

Wash yer stuff, and put it in a plastic bag. No extra scents. You want to smell like "nothing", as much as possible.

Covering up your breathe is also another thing we overlook, therefore, do your best to stay downwind. Of course, as I sat in a stand this weekend, in the course of a minute or two, my scent was blown in all 4 directions.

Re: cost efficent way to get rid of scent

I use plain ole dirt, acorns, apples, and fallen leaves. Pack some in with your camo and you'll smell like the great outdoors. I used cow patty's once as well, I was hunting farm country in Illinois, I would find a nice pile and get it all over my boots for the walk to stand. Natural cover scents are very effective in hiding your scent.
