Like the majority of Tndeer community Ive been thinking about the upcoming season constantly....and then I started trying to remember the last 3 year old deer I seen hunting.well I while in the shower I traced it back to about 2008 when 2 bucks came in at dark during mid October one in the 130s" the other 160s....then I started pondering why havent I seen any?....What have I changed since then?....Then it hit me....after 2008 I have gradually place less emphasis on scent free showering before hunts and using the earth scented scent wafer....i mean if i plotted my data im sure a direct correlation would be seen....Its time to quit being lazy and reprioritize my scent game.

I had a prostaff guy tell me all that stuff is a market gimmick; they just uses it because they sponsor him. I wonder?

I used to be big on scent lok but no longer use any of their garments claiming to control scent. I would agree that all the scent suits are a waste of money based off my personal experiences wearing them for many seasons. I am still a strong believer in scent free wash both in the shower and clothing. Also still believe scent killer sprays can make an impact.

If it was me, I'd focus my energy on something else. That's just me. Your results may differ.

Did something hit you in the shower when you dropped the soap?

I agree but, I have a set of those Light-weight Scent Lok Savanna Coveralls that are perfect for early season hunting. If they're clean and its warm out thats what Im wearing.

My dad got this guy two seasons ago while smoking a cigarette while wearing the same Carhart bibs that he washes in the beginning of the season once (with regular detergent) and they hang on the stairway heading down to the basement the rest of the year. I dont buy the whole scent control gimmick.

Oh yeah - this brute was taken in Indiana with a shotgun too at a distance of 30 yds.

for deer- scent control is way overrate imo. coyote calling- well that is a different story, but you are dealing with a much much smarter critter
