I go with the tree stands for bow hunting but ground for gun hunting. Scent should not be a problem if you take the necessary time to de-scent. We use a steam sauna in camp followed by any of the products on the market to kill human bacteria. I keep my clothes in plastic bags sprayed in scent shield and a couple of little pine boughs. I spray down everytime prior to entering the woods. Deer do not scent me using this process. I change to clean clothes every two days. I can't remember the last time I was scented, it's been years. I know not everyone has the use of a steam sauna but I know it works to cleanse you from the inside out. Good luck hunting!
