Maxie, in the early years of recurves only, I never washed my outer camo clothing thru the whole season, (unless I got some blood on them), and did very well hunting. It seemed to me when being out in the woods and climbing trees etc. as much as I did, my clothes would take on a sort of woodsy smell. A smell that I remember one of my Uncles had on his clothes. He was always out in the woods. He hunted just about everything through the seasons, rabbits, partridge, pheasants, deer, ducks, crows and mink. Then trapped all of the fur bearers, and summer trapping for fox for bounty money. Ocasionally I can still pick up the same scent on my gloves that I use climbing trees and that never get washed. I can't explain it but is what I concider to be a natural woodsy smell.
never say never
