I shoot a caliper release and it smells absolutely terrible. I've sprayed it with multiple scent killers, used powdered scent killer, baking soda, and scrubbed it with soap. Still smells terrible. Is there a way to fix the odor or do I just need to invest in another one for hunting and practice with ol stinky?

Take your release off when you wipe your butt in the woods.

Try soaking the thing overnight in light soap and baking soda. Maybe 2days.

Yep do this then put it in a ziplock with a scent wafer but make sure it is completely dry or it will mold. Then get a thumb release after you are done playing games.
