I think they have figured that deer have something like 10X the smell detection that humans have, it may be greater, I don't remember the exact #. Of the deer that I've seen 200 yds was the farthest that I thought they were adversly affected. Scent control is something to take seriously if you want to be successful year after year especially as a bowhunter.
