Guys,

I know there is a recipe for making your own sent cover.

Here in Africa its very expensive to buy the stuff from the USA.

When you sit in a ground blind you have no control over the wind:confused:
the wind change direction a lot in the Africa bush.

Any help will be appreciated.

Gerhard, sorry for the late post but I just joined. Here is a scent system that is killer, so never to late to share. Its simple... UNSCENTED AMMONIA. I kid you not. I have used it for years and have only been busted twice. Spray it all over your clothing and boots. I will not tell you that it wont hurt your garments, and I wont tell you it will, I have never had it break anything down. I dont suggest spraying it on your skin as some folks may get a reaction to it. I can buy it for 99 cents a bottle and it last as long as you want, depending on your use. Of course it does smells like urine, after all it is ammonia, but the smell goes away but kills any oder I have had to mask. Also, I dont suggest breathing it, and when you spray it make sure it blows away. Again, I know alot of people that use it, and have never had any ill affect from it. Good Luck in your hunting.

Hey, just came on board and already learned something. I'll have to try both of these. Anything to save a little of the green stuff.

Dad and I make about two gallons every year. Just clip fresh cedar limbs to fill a pot (not the wife's). Boil four gallons of water down to two. Voila!

This is my first year on a lease in Houston county, which has an abundance of Pine trees, but I haven't noticed many Cedar's (this is my first year hunting East Tx....as I have hunted in Mason TX for many years). Are there any tricks for using cover scent involving the Pine trees??

SMOKE!!!! This is a great cover scent. IF there are any fires in the area, for example someone clearing brush and burning it. The animals are used to the smell of smoke. It is a natural smell to them. Now for the real plus....smoke kills the bacteria on the body that makes us stink. I have read in survival situations, if you can't bathe, smoke yourself to clean yourself. If you've ever been around a fire, you know that the smoke smell will stick in your cloths for a long time. Just a thought. Smoke is REAL cheap. I tried it last year with some cedar while hunting in the Hill Country and never got busted and at numerous times the wind was ALL WRONG.

When I was in Africa hunting last year the wind switched and my PH got down got some buffalo dung and burned it. Once he lit it up the game came back in. I tried the same thing with some cow crap and it worked. Try it.

I knew some old timers who would cut fresh tufts of pine needles and chuck them in the fire just before leaving for the stand. It doesn't take much green pine needles and it makes a thick white smoke. They didn't linger in it, but would make one pass through the thickest smoke and walk over to their atv and head out. They swore by it. By the way, does the peroxide in the above posts bleach out your clothes?

The peroxide won't bleach your clothes. However, all the home brew recipes using peroxide, ammonia or baking soda will make you sterile. But only if used in small amounts over a short period of time.

take some of the diffrent shrubs around the area and boil them like you would tea. you will see the leaves start to fade. use a coffee filter to strain the bulky leafs and twiggs out and put in a spry bottle. you want to keep it cool cause it will spoil like tea.
