scent killer

Lately I been curious on what kind of spray scent killer everyone is using while on stand. Do you really believe it helps? I never used it on stand but have always wondered if it is something to consider including in my backpack. Thoughts???

Re: scent killer

I just got the scent killer gold 64oz pack from the north American hunting club and have been using it. Saturday had eight does come down wind of me and the one kept trying to smell me but they never spooked and eventually came back around. im not real sure how much it works, but I hunt chester county and theres a lot of people so I think they're used to people smell and what the spray gets rid of just makes it harder for them to get "spooked" by my smell. I think that makes sense! lol

I don't swear by it but I would say it does help. Try finding something with a noticeable smell and give it a few sprays and see what happens.

Re: scent killer

Scent control is more than spraying something out of a bottle just before you walk into the woods. Washing clothes frequently, showering with scent killer, keeping clothes in scent free containers, rubber boots, playing the wind direction, not over exerting yourself getting to the hunting spot (sweating). I would say that these are the basics, and not nearly the steps I take to maintain a scent reduced hunt. You will never get scent free, but minimizing it as much as possible is the goal.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.

Re: scent killer

I go out if my way for a little scent reduction, but hands down, when momma doe is in your wind, your done. She may not leave but she is on high alert or even comes closer to see what stinks. When I hear stories that these deer were right in your wind and didn't smell me I laugh. Did anyone read the article a few years ago in field and stream where the tried and tried different methods of scent control and used dogs. Nothing worked.

My advice, play the wind, spray what you want on yourself, wash your clothes in what you want, but in the end....play the wind.

Re: scent killer

I also worry a lot about scent control but never spent the money for scent spray. I just was curious how many people actually use it and what they felt about it. Just curious more less on my end...

Re: scent killer

Try to stay scent free but as the above said the wind can kill a hunt in a instant get high in a cross wind.

I did read that article. I remember it - I just didn't remember which magazine it was in. It was an interesting read.
