well I can tell you I hunt near all of them except alfalfa fields
don't have any around here. I tend to look more for what is growing well & what they are feeding on then the natural scent around me
I dont usually use cover scents just the scent killer

what if there was a scent that you could use near field you hunt next to.. or the scent of a tree that you have a stand in? J/W instead of just hiding yourself.. why not blend in?

I do not use any cover scents, don't need one. I hunt out of pine or hemlock trees and camo myself in with branches from the same kind of tree. Use a spray scent killer and good practices on staying clean and you should be good to go.

problem is you will never make a scent that works for all areas. say you make a pine scent for your area it wont work in mine. what I see with them is if the scent aint perfect the deer will know the difference. there nose makes ours look like a rock. That is why I would rather disappear "scent killer" than try to make me smell like something I aint. The most I have done is put my hunting cloths in a bag with fresh pine tree cuttings. Also along with trying to disappear is to mix your camo up. if all your camo you have on is the same pattern your still making a profile. say use mossy oak top and apg pants, etc

I hunt in areas with spruce, oak, birch, pine, and ash. I use scent killer and when I see a good spot before going into that area I will dig up some organic matter from the ground and rub into my hands and doors. Only if the ground isn't frozen. I don't use cover just the wind.
