[size="3"]Wack: What your post shows is that while camo, scent-loc, cover scents, lures, and the like are great "magic feathers", the truth is YOU DON'T NEED THEM TO KILL A DEER.[/size]
[size="3"]They help, but people have been killing deer for eons without them just fine....to the point of damn near exterminating them in some areas![/size]

It seems that youre assuming people from eons ago almost eliminated species but didnt use camo or scent coverings, etc to accomplish that.
Think about it this way...a caveman STINKS most of the time(Im assuming because of the lack of convenient running water, wouldnt you agree?), I imagine they WOULD use a scent covering...unless youre assuming the cavemen are idiots. It may not be what you buy from the store, it may be free and easy to reproduce instead.
I also find it hard to believe that cavemen who relied on food /tools from animal bodies to survive would not think of the concept of camo. I mean what do you think those wolf heads people wear on their heads are for?
So yea, you can hunt without camo or scent coverings, but to say people without camo or scent coverings almost eliminated species is a little far fetched(for me).
