Ozone is an oxidant. It breaks down organics. Rubber being one of them. It will cause irritation of mucus membranes and eyes. It can cause death in higher concentrations. It is used in place of chlorine for the disinfection of water in treatment plants. It is destructive to many bacteria and viruses including cryptosporidium and giardia. In the concentrations used for the units run on batteries it is low volume and fairly low concentrate however it is still an irritant and can cause respiratory issues. Always use with a window open in a blind. In an open air situation the effectiveness will vary due to many factors including wind speed and swirling. Just like with a Thermacell.

By the way the units used for treatment plants are the size of trucks and are most efficient when running with oxygen gas run through them. And they aren't using batteries.

Sent money back years ago for a refund, it did seem to make any difference. And yes I play the wind and scent free game.

They work if they are set up right and with a moderate fairly consistent wind.
Their are conditions where they don't work that well.
High winds
No wind
Swirling winds
They work better with a box blind than a round one or a tree stand.
A lot of people don't set them up right when they use them

a buddy of mine swears by it but has never had a mature buck in bow range, he always sends me pics of deer "downwind" and real close but its young deer every time. i let him be, and let him keep hunting bad winds since we hunt properties next to each other

barry, if you read this, i'm not talking about you, yours works great.

Just because your busted, you can't assume its one thing or the other. Unless you can interview the deer (rolling my eyes), all you can do is assume.

Scent is only 1 factor. Noise and movement are others.

I use an ozonics machine from my treestand. Never been busted 1 time. As long as you set the machine up to waterfall the ozone (which is heavier than oxygen) between you and which ever direction the wind is blowing, your doing what your supposed to be doing.

I constantly hear "I hunt the wind". Well, what do you do when your in the stand and the wind changes? I constantly monitor the wind direction and will point my machine the appropriate way. Knowing how to properly operate something will go along way in obtaining success.

not calling you out, but have you killed any mature bucks since you've been using it? like i said above, my buddy could have killed truckloads of does and young bucks by now, but has yet to have a shooter in bow range in about 4 years of using it. and he has the ozone bag for his clothes and sprays down and all that too.

i agree on you cant always just "hunt the wind." where i am deer come from almost every direction, there really isnt a perfect wind, i hunt the good winds and hope for the best.

We've killed lots of bucks 5.5-8.5 yrs old 170'-200" dead down wind when conditions were right and the ozonics was used properly

I killed a huge Boar with my Ozonics running. The boar came completely down wind and even took off the first time he smelled the Ozone. He came back very spooky around 5 minutes later allowing me to pull off the shot. It was really hot that day and I was drenched in sweat. Fooling a mature boars nose made me a believer for sure!

Kinda like they say in sports. I can only play the teams on my schedule. I can’t make the deer come by my stand. I can only testify as to the ones that do.

I will say this with absolute certainty. Movement has busted me more than scent has. And you can take that to the bank baby. ������

I have been trying out the Wildgame Zero Trace. I have been using it for the last 7 days and the jury is still out on it.
I have been bowhunting for 30+ years and always washed my clothes in baking soda, showered before hunts, and used natural vegatation for cover up scents. Nowadays, I use Dead Down Wind soaps, sprays, and laundry detergent. I do not wear my clothes in the truck down to the farm- only get dressed once I get there and transport the clothes in a carbon lined bag. I have been trying all of the precautions.
We have an abundance of hogs. I think that a mature boar can smell better than a whitetail and I have been busted 3 times in the last couple of weeks.
I purchased 1 of these units- run it on 50%, and have had multiple hogs and deer all over me directly downwind within 5 + yards while still doing all of the precautions previously mentioned. Yesterday evening at dark getting out of the stand, I had a big sow nearly step on my bow when I lowered it down from the climbing stand. It takes me another minute or 2 to gather up m belongings and a group came right under me and was rooting around. I had to run them off when I got down.
Does it work??? I am skeptical about anything of this nature but it has seem to help me some with the downwind encounters.

I killed my 165Ē deer this year. And will say I truly believe ozonics works. I saw way more deer from all directions. It died one morning and I had deer down wind that were calm while it was running. Once it died they were out pretty quick. Iíve had deer downwind well within bow range. Mature deer.

Kinda like scent spray. Does it work for sure? I donít know. But it raises your confidence haha. I really believe if I didnít have it I wouldnít have killed that deer.

I shot him on my 4th sit this season. It was money well spent.

i may break down one day and see if santa will bring me one. again, i use all the other stuff and take every precaution i can, not knowing if any of it works or not, the only difference with the ozonics is the cost for me. i can justify (to myself) spending $10 on a bottle of spray easier than i can $300 on ozonics.

this is the true test. Pigs will smell you way before a deer, especially a big boar or sow.

Ever since I bought the Ozonics I don't neither lol.

I use that and the Scent Crusher bag and I've gotten 3 more hunting buddies hooked on those products after they saw results. Tried every scent spray on the planet and always got blowed at. The only one that worked a little was Buck Bomb Doe P. When I started using Scent Crusher in 2016 I've hardly ever been winded. I'm not saying it's 100% fool proof but I've seen more deer in the woods down wind for sure then before. I still hunt the wind and take all the precautions necessary but I don't even bother wasting money on Scent Sprays anymore.

I sure hope that everyone who is saying it’s too expensive is either exclusively hunting public land or owns their own land. If you are on a lease and say it’s too much money, then you are the poster child for the word hypocrite.

I sure can. Leases are stupid pricey compared to $300 for a machine. Iím not buying that logic. Iíll paint it on thick too. Donít tell me something is too expensive then turn around and spend thousands on a lease. Money canít be that tight in the budget if you can afford that. Just come out and say I donít want to buy one. But donít say I canít afford it. Iíll laugh at you till dawns early light.

But I do want one. I just don't want to pay for it. I wish I could throw a bunch of money at a lease or ozonics but my kids play baseball, so my toys aren't really a priority right now.

I shot this little guy down south a few years ago, Ozonics in my opinion made a huge factor. But obviously scent control and wind do too... 6x6 "161 7.5 yr old...

I feel it definitely helped me out this morning.

I've been hunting two hit list bucks all week and both of these bucks only go to this one particular stand. The stand is positioned due west of the feeder @ 20 yards. It's perfect for an easterly wind but we've had a NNW wind for a couple days which is not ideal. Normally, I wouldn't even hunt a stand in the wrong wind but with gun season quickly approaching and both bucks getting regular on camera, I felt I had to try.

A lot of the deer come up a road which runs north and south and a N/NW wind crosses that road.
I clamped the Ozonics to the top of the window that faces South and I positioned it so it would create a veil of ozone to catch my scent as it exited that window.

I had several deer cross directly downwind and mill around in the road and not a single one checked up. Everybody was completely calm. At 7:20 my target buck came in, from the South.
Our deer can get pretty spooky, especially when it's windy, and we have a lot of old blowing ***** does. I am pretty sure there's no way I could have gotten away with that wind at that stand without it.
Like I said earlier, in a swirling wind it doesn't seem to help at all.

I did put it on boost mode, which the directions say you aren't supposed to do in a box blind but it had large windows so I figured ventilation wouldn't be a problem.
Not sure if boost mode helped or not.

This is how I set it up in my Krivoman blinds and it has been good to me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLws...ature=youtu.be

Anyone have an opinion on if dipping in the blind effects your hunting? Common sense says it can’t help but would like someone to tell me differently

If they smell your snuff, they smell you.

It probably helped, I've seen guys even use 2 ozonics when conditions were bad
