Re: Scent control
You'll find a lot of opinions out there in this area. Some say "product A" works, others will say none of them work, hunt the wind only, and you will get those swear by other means of scent control like pine boughs in the garbage bag your clothes are in.
Personally, I don't think you can eliminate 100% of the human odors and environmental odors that you and your clothes come in contact with. I used quarts upon quarts of the sprays year after year. I've found the best is 1) do all you can to wash your clothing in either baking soda or one of the scent free detergents, hang dry them, and store them in unscented plastic bags in my bins. 2) A good scent elimination body wash, either Scent-A-Way, or Dead Down Wind, or any other unscented body wash. Dry with towels you washed in scent elimination detergent. 3) I always have a set of pants, shirts, socks that I washed in the unscented detergents that I wear to get to the hunt. 4) Dress at your vehicle, including hunting boots. 5) Use a cover scent, like fresh earth or white oak acorn, to cover any sweat smell you got going in. 6) Hunt the wind as much as you can!One scent elimination spray works as well as any other, as far as I'm concerned.
Last few years, I've gone to other means of scent control other than these.
Wishing I was at camp!
