Default Ozonics doesnít work

Got busted for the 3rd time in a row with the ozonics. Pretty confident there is no tricking a mature deerís nose. Just wanted to vent a little about it.

You have to take every other measure too from cloths wash and storage, body control, wind play. I believe mine takes care of the last 20 %

You'll get the same results by spreading charcoal around your blind.

I tried that Scent Thief recently and it does seem to block the deer from smelling you but it makes them so curious about the smell they won't leave it alone. I had several deer go directly downwind of me and they didn't leave but kept getting closer and were visibly upset about the smell, they did not alert to my scent I can say but you can't draw your bow when every deer around is on high alert like that.

I don't believe that they work at all. What works for me is too find out where your deer are coming from and hunt the wind. And if any of y'all want to buy one I have one.

Well I think Ozonics is just a part of the process of scent elimination and not the complete answer. I have had good luck with it. Many occasions with deer dead down wind. I just got back Friday from hunting in Ohio and had good success with Ozonics in a ground blind.

I have found through alot of trial and error (mostly error) that if you get in the stand early and the wind blows on you a good couple hours it really cuts down on the scent. If you run to the stand all sweaty and just expect 30 min before feeder goes off you will get busted
Always try to play the wind and hang clothes out before hunting

I love the "just hunt the wind" guys. I've had deer come in this morning from all directions. The feeder is south of the blind and I have a NNW wind. Yet I haven't been busted once.
I'm glad some of you have the deer trained to come and go on a given route. We however have not been diligent enough to train ours that well.

I take every precaution as mentioned above. However, I have seen mature bucks circle down wind with the ozonics on and not bust me. The held their noses in the air and knew something was wrong but just couldn’t figure it out. Ozonics is not a guarantee success ticket but I really think it works.

What nobody tells you is that ozone has its own smell! It is strong enough for the human nose to smell so...
Also ozone molecules and human scent molecules weight pretty much the same so if it’s windy it doesn’t have time to kill the human odor or other orders before its blown down wind. I personally know some guys that have done extensive research on the subject and all come to the same conclusion.
I haven’t done the research myself but I trust their judgment

... so how big was that mature deer you killed downwind from you?

And just because you feel the wind blowing from a direction or an app says it is... DONT MEAN @&$*. Until you have checked thermals and currents. Wind powder and vapor will tell you what scent is doing at a range a human can smell

Can you smell the ozone when you turn it on? It may be that the Ozone generating bulb went out. You should see a bright blueish purple light and small ozone if it is working.

Otherwise, you had something that smelled more than the ozone can cover.

Eat an apple when you get to the stand to cover the smell of your breath. Believe it or not that is one of the stronger scents that cause deer to alarm.

When they are set up correctly, they work well. I have had deer under 5 yards directly downwind multiple times and have not been busted. I have been busted several times without it so I am not special.

I am not a scientist either. But I do know we left a pair of kenetrek hard scrabble boots in one of the ozone clothes things along with other clothing and they basically fell apart in a little over a year. So we started looking into it and found ozone brakes down rubber, and is not recommended as being healthy for your lungs. I don’t know if the ozonics ( which we were using also) introduced a different type of ozone ( I don’t think there are different types) and after seeing what happened to the boots and other things we stopped using them. We did not notice an obvious reduction in spooked animals. We still had to play the wind. And even now I have had animals that were surly down wind and figured would take off any second and they didn’t. Hit and miss either way.

No $&it sherlock. I was born at night but it was a lot of nights ago. And there have been a few. And I use a piece of floss hanging off a branch or the bow and the powder. But, I also know that no scent control is 100% or foolproof. But if you use good products, do not compromise your system and use the wind as much as possible you can beat the odds more often than not.
I do not use an ozone generator for hunting. I do use one to deodorize my work truck. Sweaty men can ripen it up quick in the summer.

I’m still on the fence about it. I’ve seen evidence that is works in trials with scent detection dogs and I’ve certainly had deer walk 5-10 yards downwind of me while it was running and never check up.
But this makes 3 sits in a row wheee I’ve been busted by multiple deer with the Ozonics running. And, no, I’m not hunting the wrong wind for the stand although it does seem to be swirling a bit this evening.
I just changed the position of it so we will see if that helps. So far nothing has come in ��

Iíve been using Ozonics while hunting and ozone generators for my clothing for years. For hunting, it must be set up right to kill the odors as they exit the blind.

There are some good videos that will help you set it up correctly.

https://www.ozonicshunting.com/defau...ics-in-a-blind

https://www.ozonicshunting.com/defau...-the-treestand

As far as Damaging clothing or boots, Iíve never had a problem with my sika or kuiu clothing or under armor hunting boots. I treat my clothes for 10 - 15 minutes before I get dressed. I had a log 6 generator for years and recently bought a similar unit off of Amazon. I put all my clothes and boots in a tote and then run the ozone into the tote via a tube.
