Something I would like to chat about is the control of your scent.
You understand the problem right? Deer have amazing noses and can smell you coming a mile away. The only way you know is when you don't see any deer. They've got you figured and stay way. So to solve the problem, you must find ways to eliminate, or at least decrease your own scent. That will go a long way to help with your whitetail deer hunting.
I've found some great products that help solve this problem. I will only talk about products that I use and endorse.
But first here's the story...
The first weekend of Whitetail Deer Hunting one resent season I thought I was ready to go. I had washed my hunting cloths and then packed them in Hemlock tree branches and put them in the sealed tub I keep in the back of my truck. I have done this each year. No problem at all.
Once done I change my cloths outside at my truck before going into the woods. Well this year I did get busted several times opening weekend. My son as well, we could not figure out our problem.
One thing to always remember about the whitetail is their nose is 50 to 100 percent better than any dogs nose at smelling scents. Think of this, when a dog can smell drugs in a sealed plastic bag that is awesome. Imagine a whitetail being 50 percent better. We as hunters are in their home so they know and understand our scents.
So after we got "busted," we had to take a step back and try something new.
A good friend of mine suggested using Dead Down Wind. Well it worked great. I completely rewashed all my cloths in their laundry soap and bought all their personal care products as well. Each day I shower with their soap and and wash my hair as well with their products. I have done so for the entire season. The picture of the buck you see with this article was harvested at 15 yards from the base of my treestand and he came by my stand from the down wind side. My son also is seeing more deer and has not been busted since.
