Do you think scent control is needed in a bow hunting area that is between a highway and a developed housing area? These deer smell car exhaust, Ms. Smiths cooking, and the sweaty kids everyday. Do I still need to worry about scent control?

I would say to run around behind your car getting the exhaust on your clothes, stop by Ms. Smith and get a bite to eat and with all this running around you will be pretty sweaty...then go hunt. (Just funnin wit ya!)

Hard to say. Really just depends on the hunting pressure. Suburban deer that are not hunted often will have a tolerance for human scent, however, just because they eat out of your yard does not mean that they will perceive you walking into the woods as a threat. They can get used to certain activities and have a understanding of when and where human presence presents a threat.

Personally, I always practice scent control when deer hunting if for no other reason then to just maintain the discipline of doing so. If you are already having success without it, then I wouldn't worry about it so much. There are so many factors involved in this. For example, if you are walking a half a mile through deer habitat to get to your stand, then you might want to consider your scent, however, sitting on a field edge or just barely entering the woods will not have near the same impact.
