Default Cover Scent vs Scent Killer?

I have always used scent killer

But was wondering after getting busted a few times last weekend if using a cover scent would make any difference.

Post what you use and why!

Here’s my take on cover scents:

Growing up I didn’t always make the right choices. I dipped, drank, smoked... everything I knew I wasn’t supposed to do. I laugh now thinking of all the mouthwash, toothpaste, gum to cover the smell

All it does is draw attention to the smell your covering. A drunk with a peppermint smells like a drunk with a peppermint. A smoker wearing cool water smells like a smoker wearing cool water. It don’t hide @&$*. And I think draws attention to another foreign smell.

I treat my clothes with my little ozone machine I bought off of amazon for 40.00 I treat them for an hour and then hang them outside for them to air out. I take a shower in scent away soap before I go to the stand. I walk through a cow patty or two on the way to the stand and have not been busted one time this year. I had 9 deer directly downwind of me and not one of them ever knew i was 25 yards away.

We wash our clothes in scent free, air dry and pack with pine needles. My cover scent is a fresh pine limb rubbed on my clothes as i walk.

I don’t use any scent killer or cover scent. Use the wind and you can smoke a cigarette while drinking a beer wearing Cool Water.

I’ve recently discovered Hibiclense. For those that don’t know, it’s a very strong antibacterial soap that doctors and patients use before going under the knife to prevent contamination. It kills (odor causing) bacteria on your skin for 24 hrs. Wash clothes in scent free soap and spray down with scent killer on the way to the blind. Seems to work great.

You mite not want to bathe in Hibiclense. It removes all bacteria from the skin. Including the good stuff. Do some research.

I did, and you are correct, they do say not to use it every day for that reason, though Amazon is full of reviewers that do, Iím not suggesting anyone do that. It can be used once or twice per week safely. If it kills good and bad bacteria on the morning I go hunting, Iím good with that.

For you guys that hunt the wind, I’m wondering the following as I have always struggled to know the right approach:
1. Do you move your stand based on wind direction?
2. How predictable are the deer coming into your setup in terms of what direction they come from? For me I’ve had a hard time getting deer to come in up wind of me or they work their way down wind of my setup
3. How do you deal with wind swirling or varying it’s direction at times?

I wash my clothes in scent killer and shower with it as well and haven't been busted in the past 3 or 4 years. I wash all my clothes before I leave for a weekend hunt and keep them separate from everything else. Also don't come back from a morning hunt and go straight to cooking breakfast, change your clothes! I will still hunt a stand with less than ideal wind and have no issues.

Scent killer sprays are a joke and every desperate hunter buys them. Are you saturating your clothes completely in it? It can't "kill" what it does not touch.

I use fox and skunk scents with great success.

I use scent eliminating products but don't believe you can completely eliminate your scent. But by minimizing it and using a good cover scent you can dilute it enough most deer won't be spooked by it.
Most hunters who poo poo the systems don't use them properly and wear their hunting clothes around camp, in their truck etc.
You have to have a system and follow it.
Playing the wind is always best. It is not always an option.

For some people around here, the default answer for scent control is always “just play the wind!” Duh -thanks for the tip. I don’t think anyone knowingly sits a stands that is directly upwind of the feeder or trail they are hunting. Staying downwind is difficult in many areas - especially in West Texas mesquite flats - because the deer come in from all points on the compass. Having the wind in your face is a good start but it is of little help if the deer come in from behind you. The smart ones come in from downwind no matter what direction that may be.

I'm trying to not be there. Why would I want to put something I'm the air that's not the all the time anyway?
Only thing I do is smoke my clothes and use sent free soap .
They smell smoke all the time and the smoke kills bacteria that causes scent.
I haven't been able to to wash my hunting clothes all year but I wear them around the camp fire or hang the on a chair in the smoke.
I've only been busted once and I was hog hunting and the deer came in behind me after work with no shower.
It works!!

Just because they don't blow and go doesn't mean you ain't busted.
I've seen then hit the scent trail and just back out and leave without making a fuss .
Get some windwalkers and you'll be surprised how the wind swirls around your area.

One more thing most people forget.
Your boots.
Rubber boots make your feet sweat!!
I hold mine upside down over the fire and let the smoke do it's work .
Then when you walk in let your pants legs go over your boots to help keep scent in.
Think , step poof , step poof.

I was very skeptical but I bought Scent crusher bag. After my last two evening sits I’m sold. Had 10+ deer around my stand in every direction both evenings and never busted. One doe tried to spook but I believe she saw some movement from me.

Not sure they can smell anything with scent thief, when I spray it on my hand the scent thief is all I can smell. Not really sure what the smell is, But Iíve smelled it before, when shredding pastures, smells just like a weed we have that grows on our place. Iím 53 years old and have bow hunted since high school, Iíve tried a lot of things that turned out to be gimmicks over the years but in my opinion this stuff helps.

I wash my clothes in baking soda, bath in scent killer body wash, spray down before I walk in with scent killer or dead down wind, and rub the sides of my boots with evercalm. Since using this combination i almost never get winded, I can’t even remember the last time.

Ive been guilty for trying about every scent killer out on the shelf. I hunt the sam Houston national forest and feel like scent is a big deal. I never hunt a spot without checking winds and it seems everytime i go deer come from every direction and the wind never goes just one way ill be 15 to 25 feet up a tree and its blowing every direction. I have had 10 plus deer within 20 yards already this year and the only ones that have busted me hit my scent trail. I usually change into hunting clothes about 80 yards from my hunting location so im not so sweaty. Dead down wind is by far my favorite so far. Primos makes the earth blend which smells like fresh overturned dirt but for the most part earth scented dead down wind. I also rub myself down with a pine. Just cant figure out how to eliminate ground scents they keep screwin my hunts up. Deer comes from up wind some how manages to walk up to right where i walked in had it happen on 3 diffrents sets

Unfortunately we can’t really play the wind at our place bc the deer come from every direction. As soon as I think I know where they are coming from they wilstart using a completely different route. I use scent-a-way spray and started using ozonics this year. I hunted two times where the wind was blowing directly at a number of deer within 40 yards and all they did was put their nose up several times and never spooked. My brother and I both used Ozonics and didn’t hear a single deer blow at us the entire weekend and we had a number of deer downwind of us each hunt. I understand that not all deer will blow at you but I was very impressed with what I saw and how the deer reacted.

I’ve used cover scents like cedar oil and raccoon **** in the past but you have to remember that the majority of that stuff is concentrated so you only need a small amount. If you are in an area with cedars I recommend you break off a limb and rub the cedar between your legs, arms and rub all over yourself. I think that works better than a lot of the cover scents. Another thing I like to do is step in cow **** to help cover my scent on the way to the blind.

I’ve never tried using smoke but I’m sure it would work.

who knows if it helps or not but everytime i go out and fill the feeder i sprinkle out some of the powdered corn coat, i also mix it in with the corn in the feeder. whenever i hunt i sprinkle some out around the windows of my blind. it might be BS but ive had some success in a spot where the wind swirls constantly and the deer come from all directions.

Smoke you clothes and boots and if you want the one cover scent that is native to 99% to most deer leases, use Pete Rickards Cattle Scent. very natural scent when you have cows on the lease. Just do not spray it on your pop up or blind as some cattle will rub on it.

I have been using Burnham Brothers Cedar Oil for most of my life. Odor is not offensive and lasts for days. Smoke will help but I can't stand the way I smell.
The formula for this product is not pure cedar oil as cedar oil has very little odor. We add other things to the formula to increase the strength. I put it on my clothes though it will leave an oily spot, but who cares????
I have a lot of old time bowhunters who purchase this stuff 6 bottles at a time.
Adios,
Gary

I shower with dead down wind body soap and shampoo, when I get to my hunting area I spray myself down with sometimes a pine cover scent or just regular earth scent. Then I hang coon urine from a branch near my stand. Sometimes the deer come down wind and bust me sometimes they donít.. I cant necessarily hunt the wind because Iím surrounded by hardwoods and pine. I just hunt and hope for the best. This isnít the Midwest where deer are easy to pattern this is Texas.

I found that placing my ground blind East of the feeder helps with North or South wind.
I use cover scent wafers and hang them in the windows I open.
I also put coon or fox urine on the bottom of my boots.
Don't seem to have a problem.

Have a tripod I hunt out of when I have a strong North wind.

This is what I use, a couple of squirts and my scent is completely gone.

This is how I hunt. I don't get to hunt much but I get an opportunity, I go, no matter the wind. Deer hunting is about being in the right place at the right time. Deer can walk out anywhere anytime.
