Does Scent Lok clothing etc work

Postby davejshepherdson » Wed Jun 23, 2010 3:32 am

I must admit that I am anal about scent - use the Scent Lok and other gear. Apart from wahing in scent free soap, I always wash down from head to toe with the scent eliminating cloths outside, especially my hair.
Having said that I always make sure to stay down wind of where I expect the deer to come out. Two stories from last year. I was in a ground stand, stump of a tree when a large buck stepped out not 20 yards from where I was. The wind was blowing right towards him, but he did not smell a thing - unfortunately for me he walked a the only trail that I had not cut a shooting lane. He was visable for at least a minute but never got wind of me.
The next day I walked along side a doe bedding area, into the wind - I  had just reached a clearing when out of the corner of my eye, a 6 pointer came out , nose in the air, focused entirely on the does. I was able to draw my bow, could not really aim and shot him from 4 feet away.
My take is that the carbon activated clothing and scent eliminating products work if used correctly.

If you are curious, here is the latest...debate and all. Scent Loc Found Guilty Of False Advertising:

The court also found that carbon clothes CANNOT be regenerated in a dryer like they advertise either. That kind of destroys the whole premise.

That was an interesting read, Goose.

Here's something I posted in another thread. I used to do this before these scent blocking clothes came out. Have yet to purchase one still:

My best anti-scent technique was to put my clothes in garbage bags. Pour baking soda in them- I mean at least a box in each bag. Shake 'em up like crazy. The next morning I'd go outside..shake each item of clothing(underwear..socks..the works)- watch the dust clouds(was really cool in the moonlight). I've never had so many deer so close to me in my life. Hunted from the ground a lot and had 'em bedding a few feet from me. Wasn't even in a blind! Ok..that's probably happened to a lot of you. I just thought it was cool. My own version of a scent lock type product.

I should add- I'd reuse the baking soda for awhile(what was left in the bag..not what was gone with the wind)..but baking soda is quite cheap.
