Hi guys many thanks for replys,
We over here have no bow season, it is rifle season all the time!(so long as the deer are in season) so i have no particular need to be very close, sorry i dont know the range of your bows, a short range shot for me would be about 30 meters and a long range 250 meters i shoot with a 7mm 08 and .243 both sakos 75's fitted with schmidt and benders.
As someone has said it seems to be a confidence thing, i shall hold fire on the clothing for a while and perhaps try stalking some deer during our close season using some scent free soaps, washing powders etc and also try some of your masking sprays.
Last year i had 68 deer(red,roe and fallow over here in my area)
I have 3 so far this year so off to a great start!
All The Best cervushunter.
