Chewing or smoking while hunting

How many hunters have to throw in some tobacco or some cigarettes when hunting. I know whenever I go hunting i always have to to chew.

Re: Chewing or smoking while hunting

When I chewed, I did. One of the hardest things about quitting was not dipping while on stand.

BTW, it has an odor and if I can smell it, I'm pretty sure the deer can too.

I know a guy whose dad smokes on stand. He rides his dad about it, but his dad doesn't take him seriously, since dad has killed like 50 bucks in his lifetime.

Re: Chewing or smoking while hunting

Yes..I smoke on stand. Kind of crazy that I use scent control sprays..soaps..etc..Clothes have been hanging outside since October. Then I will light up occasionally. I have actually shot two buck with the smoke getting in my eyes as the butt was dangling from my lips. I am not sure that deer associate cigarette smoke with humans/dangers. IMO what is worse about smoking is the hand to mouth motion..so I always keep my hand right in front of my mouth as I smoke the whole cigarette. Maybe I would see more deer if I didn't smoke, but I have done alright through the years.

First deer I ever killed was while siting with my Uncle. He was smoking a cigerette when I shot.

I chew when in my stand... early in the season I will spit all around my stand to get the deer familiar with the smell and think nothing of it when they come around later.
