I recently read a book by a well known Bow Hunter who claims he uses no scent no UV brightners laundry soap purchased at the grocery store for fraction on the cost we pay for the stuff in the Hunting Stores/Catalogs. I have always wondered about this and if the stuff in the hunting stores was the same as the grocery store and just repackaged and marked up. Has anyone else tried/tested this? The only reason I haven't is due to low deer densities in New England compared to other states and not wanting to blow one of the few opportunities we actually get.
Most Author leave a bio or contact info. Perhaps a letter to the author or a call to his editor might get your answer. Might try a google search, as he may have mentioned what is was in another context.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
I have been using standard issue laundry detergent for years now. I just buy the un scented detergent when I wash my clothes. And for the drying cycle if I do not hang them in the yard (which is what I usually do) I do NOT put a dryer in with it. And have had plenty of success!
After reading this thread I did some research. Looks like Sun and Earth laundry soap is scent and brightener free. As for the brightener, I've emailed S&E to verify. It is expensive but much less than the hunter specific stuff. 7th generation also looks good but is a little more pricey
