BlackBelt, I think its the human odor that spook deer. Do you think the sweet smell in a scent spray will alarm a deer?

I also think that its the human odor that is the alarm bell for deer. But I'd rather have NO smell than even a sweet non-human smell!!! I don't think that all abnormal odors in the woods bother deer. I mean, the thermacell odor doesn't seem to spook them at all.
Still, I'd rather be as odorless as possible.

I agree. But all the scent stuff I have ever bought had some type smell to it. The green soap, the spray, all had an odor to it. But I figured it is about scent free as possible. That was my reason for not buying the expensive scent killers. Plus Im cheap. lol

I have saved some money and had good results useing products not made special for hunting. For my clothes, I use scent free dye free detergent. Cost around 4 dollars. I think the stuff is made for people who have allergies and cant use reg. detergents. .


I do this as well!!! You can get it cheaper at Big Lots as well!!! Alot cheaper than the Deer Hunting HS kind in the hunting section.....

Remember there are 2 different things happening here. 1 is scent elimination and 1 cover scent. Just like on your deodorant you use every day (I hope) you have an anti-perspirant and a deodorant. Some may be a combination of the 2. Some just may be trying to do one or the other.

On the scent elimination thing - you shouldnt smell anything. On the cover scent, you should smell something. Do the deer associate it with humans? Never know unless you have the opportunity to sit back and experience it up close. It is so hard to say what experience that each deer has had that would lead them to bolt of they smell the latest and greatest. I use the new Primo stuff. Does it work? Ive gotten busted once this year that I know of. What was it on me he smelled? No clue. Could be 100 things I suppose but I too keep my hunting stuff in a sealed plastic box and keep my hunting gear separate from everything else.
