Well it is a subjective term, but that is the option I chose and I will briefly explain my "sent control" routine.
- All my deer hunting clothing/equipment is kept cleaned, unscented and packed in dive bags, year round.
- I begin taking clorphyll tabs a few weeks before season and keep it up until it is over.
- Before season all clothing receives a drenching of scent killing spray, dried and repacked.
- Before season all equipment is scrubbed with hydrogen peroxide and repacked.
- I keep all my hair trimmed.
- I carry rubber gloves during hunting season for gassing up or touching odorous things.
- I take a shower with unscented soap just prior to leaving to go hunting.
- I towel off with and dress in clothing that have been washed in scent free detergent.
- I cover the seats of my pickup with plastic.
- When I arrive at my hunting area, I strip and dress in my hunting clothes outside.
- My outer layer is activated carbon and rubber boots.
- I spray with scent killing spray all over and carry a bottle to refresh my neck head and hands.
- I suck on apples or chew scent free gum.
- I consider the wind carefully as I chose my stand and my route to it. I never hunt against the wind.
- I bottle my urine and pack it out.
Yes, I occasionally skip a step because it is impractical or impossible and I don't worry about it, but my wife says I have "seasonal OCD".
