Hanging out my hunting laundry today. I got started early this morning, as it takes a while to dry. I got to the gym and come home to find my neighbor is having a cookout. Completed with smoke from the grill...which in turn, probably negates the scentless detergent I used.

Nah. I'll just take a day off from work during the week and do it all over again. I can smell the smoke from the backyard AND the front yard...changing locales won't make any difference.

I don't hang my hunting clothes outside to dry/air out for that very reason. I live in close quarters here in the suburbs and there is almost always a neighbor using a grill in the afternoon or evening. I can sit on my back porch and smell a cookout almost 7 days a week.

I just finished washing a load of hunting clothes and found out our dryer either has a thermostat or element out! Guess I'll take it apart at halftime...

Just hunt the wind and don't worry what you smell like.No matter what you do,the deer are going to smell you if they are down wind.

I try to do the scent free thing as much as possible. I don't worry about smoke from a fire much when I'm at deer camp. Plenty of deer have been killed from deer camps by hunters wearing smokey clothing. The old timers put a lot of faith in smoke from a fire as a cover scent. Good Luck

You can definitely beat their noses. Just need to know what you're doing and do it right. This is my opinion, but I believe it's fact.

I suppose I could've just waited it out and sprayed it down with scent away. Chances are, the inlaws have cooked hmaburgers on a grill outside...and smoke goes a long ways. Rather have smoke than say, aftershave or something.

I'm just gonna wash them during the week when everyone is at work. Then use the scent away dryer sheets to get them dry.

I hear deer like BBQ.... either that or they are upwind. Either way, they won't have a clue an arrow is coming their way until it's too late. Good luck

I agree. I mean I don't put on Old Spice and hit the trail. I do spray down though. My grandfather hunted with a .30-06 from the ground. He never bough camo. He did own it later in life but only then because his boys bought it for him.

I was in a tree just a few weeks ago, had climbed up it, long sleeve camo, complete with face mask. Sweating up a storm. A doe and a button buck walked directly under me. Two bucks were playing 30 yards behind me, and a doe finally busted me, but only because she looked up.

No matter what you do, you will have a scent. Your breath alone puts out a lot of scent. Humans secrete hormones and have germs and will pick up smells along the way. No method is foolproof.
