When I am 18 feet up in my climber I do not think they can smell me before they are in shooting range. Hasn't seemed to bother them in 20+ years.
I do use non-scented laundry detergent and deodorant and play the wind but I worry most about them catching movement and always move slow and easy.
You could save more innocent lives by taking pens away from politicians than by taking guns away from law-abiding citizens.

Yep. Play the wind or don't hunt that stand if wind not right.

I stick to my early stands as well, but I have also found using a ground blind helps a lot. I spray down the blind after each hunt to kill any scent left behind.
The impossible takes just a little bit longer

I love it when hunters think that deer can't smell them if they get really high in a tree.....all that does is put the scent reaching the ground further out , so they pick you up further away and avoid the area, while you never know they are there.

being that high off the ground works well if deer come in from another direction and can't pick up your scent before they get out to it, walking away, giving you lots of time to get a shot.

But, then again, they can smell your footprints, the cells off your skin as you walked in, where you touched a limb, and most anything else ......

so....anything other than down wind is mere luck that the deer doesn't bust you , maybe even before you know it's there...

I still know people that will hunt a stand every day regardless of the wind

I love it when they tell me that they aren't seeing any deer and can't figure out why???????? lol
There are some people who always seem angry and continuously look for conflict.

Walk away; the battle they are fighting is not with you, but with themselves.

Yep, and this keeps me out of the woods for the most part b/c I do not want to stink up the place I'll be hunting, so I have "bow" spots and "gun" spots to hunt to keep from messing a good place up for the whole season. ;\)

Same here. There is no way I would miss a day of hunting just because the wind is not right. My theory has worked for the past 20 years.

Old Timmers used to tell me to hang old clothes that you have worn out all summer around your stand to let them get used to the smell & no adverse reactions. Then you may be able to get by with them smelling you the first week or two of season. Of course that won't last all year, but if it helps you score early then its worth it! I have never tried this, but makes sense that it would work
