Default Do you use Cover Scents?

Has anyone tried Conquest Evercalm product?

If so, does it work??

Haven't tried it. I started smoking my clothes about five years ago and haven't looked back.

Tried it and didn't like it, it had the opposite effect on the deer herd where I was hunting.
I might spray a little on my boots before I walk in if I remember.
Usually a couple hours by the campfire the night I get to camp does the trick.

Sounds like a great idea. What part of Texas are you hunting?

I feel like all those cover scents are Bs. What are you guys doing about your breath anyway?

Just play the wind.

Cedar branches if you have cedar are great cover. Plus I have used Evercalm with pretty good success.

Hunt the wind. Though I, I have had good results using cedar in the past if it's in the area, I just don't like rubbing cedar all over me, or tossing cedar in with my clothes. When I was kid and more mad at them I'd seal up cedar in a scent free bag with my clothes. If you have to buy it a store, pretty good bet it's not going to work as good as something natural in the environment......rubbing fresh cedar on you, a pillow case full of leaves and fresh earth from the woods tossed in with your hunting clothes etc. Those scent wafers are BS and spook deer, I've seen it.

Nope. I try to be as scent free as possible. Get 20+ft up and don't hunt a bad wind. It's been a winning recipe for me.

If you hunt near a pasture cow patties are great. Not everyone does.

I’m a fan of Evercalm. Can’t honestly say that I know for a fact it’s helped, but it’s never hurt either.

Ever calm has worked for me even with a big mature buck. I also use to put Buck Candy in the feeder with the corn and the deer got use to the smell of it. Every time I hunted I would carry a small baggy with some buck candy in it and open it in the stand. It smelt great and the deer were use to it so it worked.

I have been using smoke for probably 15 yrs. best cover scent out. Play the wind is all fine and dandy but our deer forgot to read the hunting books and come from all directions so itís like pissin in a 50 mph head wind

I have video on my phone of a buck licking a tree with ever calm on it at the base of my tree. He leaves downwind.

I can’t speak to whether additional bucks didn’t show up that might have, but I have literally peed out my blind and smoked a cigarette while deer were at the feeder and the wind was from me to them and while they clearly noticed it, they didn’t spook.

I’ll hang my clothes outside overnight, but that’s the extent of what I do beyond hunting the wind.

A lot of hunters swear by Evercalm but the only time I used it a doe walked up and smelled where I applied it and practically turned inside out getting away. You never know how your deer are going to react

Dead down wind does the trick for me. Lay out your hunting clothing outside spray it with dead down wind, some put clothing in container I just leave them outside until they are dry. Wake up next morning and hit the field cmon!

Yup, I use the Evercalm stick.
2 swipes under each armpit seems to do the trick .

Just kidding.

I use it because I don't have to worry about up or down wind. I just go hunt what ever stand I want to. I have had many deer down wind up close. Like this one at 3 yards Sunday. He circled the blind 2 times. I rub it on the down wind windows of the blind I am sitting in and forget it.
I also put my jackets in empty corn sacks (no nilla).

I spray scent killer spray and leave clothes outside. I also use a cheesecloth bag filled with deadly dust by BBsquared. Knock the bag on clothes a few times during the hunt as cover scent. I’ve had deer look like they were trying to figure out how to climb the tree to get to the deadly dust. To be fair this is in Nebraska where feeders aren’t legal.
