What do you prefer?

Postby mhouck06 » Mon May 25, 2009 4:37 pm

In light of the recent article, which scent eliminator do you personally think works best?

I'm one of the "other".
 
The only one of the products I use of the above brands, is the unscented shampoo that Scent-Away makes. For everything else body-wise I use plain old Dove UNSCENTED bar soap. Sometimes I'll even use that on my head too.
 
Other than that, I follow this regiment:
 
1. I bathe often, and I try to wash my head and hair if I come back to camp and cook any food, as cooking odors stick on your hair like glue. I also use an unscented stick deodorant.
 
2. I keep all my hunting clothes, less my underware, out in the shed, and I don't put it on until I'm ready to hunt, and it comes off before I go back into the cabin. I wear sweats to and from.
 
3. I also begin taking cholorphyll capsules a week or two before the season starts, and then throughout the season as an internal deodorant.

This is essentially the same method I use. Along with large amounts of baking soda used on my body and to launder my clothes with.
As for the eliminator products, they are all pretty much the same so I use the cheapest which is usually Scent Killer. They are all oxidizers. IMO,IME there is no more powerful oxidizer than baking soda.

I used to use Scentaway. Then I tried dead down wind and it worked really well. I tried Primos but it leaves a smell so I quit using it and went back to dead down wind. Stay with a proven winner , at least from my stand point anyway.

Deaddown Wind no question.......a lot of the clothes (jackets, bibs, orange,ect)that I use to bundle up in for late season archery are ones often that I have ran hounds in for the previous 5 weeks.  I do try to wash them befor but it turns really cold I grab what i got......dead down wind has not let me down yet...3 last weekend hunts and 3 does in three years[:D]
It matters not the weapon nor its caliber, rather the caliber of the one who wields it.

I like to use Scent-Away because I have had good success with it.I also like the acorn and earth Scent-Away certain times of year here in Pa..It kills your odor while also masks any other unwanted scents.I like the idea about the chlorophyl tablets.Can you tell me were a good place to buy them are at if anyone knows?I know scent sheild makes something like it.I also have had some success with Dead Down Wind but have not used it enough to comment much on it.My cousin loves Dead Down Wind and will not use anything else unless he forgets it or runs out.I use all the Scent-Away products from soap,laundry soap,clothing sprays,deo.,feild wipes and waffers.I have always had great hunts with these products and I like the old reliables if they are working for me.Just try to shower and spray your favorite product on you before you head out.It is hard for most of us to be totally dedicated to do everything most of the companys tell you to do because of time.Just do your best and have fun.--This is my 1st post on a forum site so if I look like I do not know what I am doing you are correct.

Aww.....don't sweat it. None of us know what we're talking about either, it's just that we have no qualms about opening our mouths (or fingers, specifically), and confirming it!  [:D]
 
Your opinion is just as valid and welcome as anyone elses!
 
Besides, based on your words,
 
"Just do your best and have fun."
 
It sounds like you've pretty well figured it out!  [:)]

Scent killer has just done it for me.. Ive been able to have deer walk right up on me and never know I was there.. It's one of the only few Ill take the field with me when i head out.
