ORIGINAL: CB on the run
I read an article within the past several years about a man the hunts slightly differently than most of us. He covers his body(exposed skin) with ash and charcoal from a prior fire then stalks deer. His sucess is whether or not he can touch a deer. According to the article he is often sucessfull so apparently the charcoal ash does reduce air borne human odor molecules. Obviously he is using 'new' charcoal each time.
I might actually try that! Not the touching part, but the ash.
A representative of a scent-loc company made a statement about how his product works
So my question is just WHAT percentage is it? Even if it's 95%, that means after 20 reactivations that the suit no longer can absorb anything.
There were some guys that hunted one of the farms my friend owns and they were staying in the old farmhouse with us that serves as our "camp". We have a washer/dryer in there, and these guys were SOOO scent-anal, that they washed and dried their scent-loc TWICE A DAY! After the morning hunt, and then again in the evening. Yet they STILL complained about being "busted" on almost every hunt they did.
Now an industry representative states that there's a "CERTAIN PERCENTAGE" that in fact DOESN'T reactivate, but he doesn't say how much. What's he hiding? If they are truely the real McCoy, then state your numbers, and shut guys like me up!
No, I think you are missing something. We only need to reactivate the carbon that his bound to odor molecules. So if a hunter is careful about his scent control regimen (and follows the above guidelines) he/she may several good years with piece of clothing.
