Thanks for your support everyone. It is pretty chill out here these days though. Definitelt not the same as my first deployment over here in 2004. Anyway, thanks for your advice as well. If I wash all clothes and fabrics in a scent free detergent, air dry them outside, spray all equipment with a scent free spray, and use a cover scent on my boots when walking, would that be sufficient? Or is there more to it than that? Also, what kind of areas to deer normally sleep and what is a telltale sign that an area may be a bed for a deer? I have a spot in my mind, from my scouting from last year, but I need to be able to locate a possible sleeping spot for the deer in the area so that I know to setup my stand away from their normal trail. It may not be popular, but I plan on hunting on some bait this year, to try and learn as much as I can. Once I learn the habits of the deer, the bait will no longer be used.
