Default Scent control

What do you guys do for scent control? Out west is sure to be different than in the woods around here? I do it all. Clothes scent lok and silver thread, HS sparys, soaps, AND play the wind.

It is to me, it might not be to you. I've had deer down wind at 10 ft. was it a deer that just wasn't scared? was it the scent control precautions I took? I think it is worth it, but that's me. that's all I got on worth.

I wondered the same thing! How do we know all all of the scent prohibiting clothing works? How do we know that it isn't an "Emperors New Clothes" thing? I use scent spray on my clothes when I get outta the truck to go to my stand, but as far as special hunting detergent, I haven't. I bought some once...it caused the most awful rash I have ever had. My neck looked like the Nutty Professors it was so swollen!!! So, I just started using unscented Tide...

try washing your clothes in baking soda you can even wash your body in it. I think that name brand detergent still has scent a deer can smell. and baking soda is cheap and works. I use the sport wash because of the uv killer and the scent control. what law suit?

I invested pretty heavily in the silver max last season. Underwear (top and long John bottom), shirt, and jacket. Had a doe and buck walk within 25 feet of me from down wind and never seemed to smell me.
