the first thing I do when I get to the field is to put on a pair of rubber/latex gloves and spray them with my scent eliminator so that anything I touch while getting changed into my hunting clothes or getting my gear together is as scent free as humanly possible. I wear those rubber/latex gloves all the way to my tree stand and then remove them when I'm finally set up and then I put on my hunting gloves.
I saw a quote in Les Davenport's article in the Nov. '08 issue of D&DH. He is writing about the scent control efforts of urber-hunter Dave Emken.
Emken says, "No matter how free of foreign odor you think you are, downwind deer will smell you nine times out of ten."
I share this more to make myself feel better than anything else. I thought I was a scent fanatic, then I read you guy's posts about almost never being winded. [:(]
At least I'm in good company.
