Hi can you tell me what you do for breath scent control? I am looking for some thing cheap and effective to use.
Thanks for the info.

Before heading out I brush with only baking soda. As I finish getting ready at the truck I put some more in my mouth and swish it around. I keep a small amount with me in case my mouth starts to feel yucky during the hunt. Of course, one must have good daily oral hygine (brush, floss, rinse) outside of hunting. If not, a little work before hunting won't last long.

Hi DanburyBowhunter you just use regualr baking soda from the yellow bow right? Do you just put some on the truth brush then put water on it and wash away? Does it taste bad?

Try gargling with doe-in-heat urine. It works great! The only thing is that sometimes you have to shoot the buck more in self defense than anything else. That makes it a bit tough if you're doing QDM........ ;)

Seriously, I start taking chlorophyll tablets about 2 weeks before the season starts and then al thoughout the season. It not only helps with your breath, but it also reduces body odor. If you're interested, use the searh function here and put in "chlorophyll". There's an entire thread or so on it.

Ever eat a pine tree? Some parts are edible..... ;) They also make a gum called gumaflage, I think. It is not bad, I also use apple jolly ranchers and vanilla lip balm, when it's cold.
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 brushed with baking soda. In addition, chew on a some pine or cedar needles or on an apple.

Yep, just the regular stuff, around $0.90/box at the grocery store. I wet the brush and sprinkle some on the wet brush. It is saltly but not bad. Very similar to toothpaste with baking soda. I bring a snack bag with some when I head out the door. In the field I wet my fingers and dip in. I usually toss the remaining bit after a hunt because baking soda mixed with saliva makes a great breeding ground for bugs.

Baking soda.


Brush with it. Gargle with it. I used it for years in place of toothpaste.

It helps to avoid smelly foods like onions, garlic, & spicy meats to help reduce breath odor. My wife likes to eat at an Ethopian restaurant with a friend of hers (because I won't go near the place with them) and she absolutely reeks of garlic for a couple of days afterward. I know if it smells that strong to me, deer could smell it from a long ways off.
