Before he/she turned and bolted wheezing like the forest was on fire. While agrevated cause apparantly the scent killer I got at walmart isn't worth a crap. I did get one heck of a rush watching it come in.

I've tried dead down wind and got busted during a morning hunt and again on that same afternoon,,, AND THEN STUPID ME, I try it again a couple days after only to get busted again and the only thing I could blame getting busted on was, using the dead down wind, that year that was the only thing that changed,, SO, dead down wind died straight down the drain.

The one effective scent killers I've ever used (and I've used many) that's actually proven itself to me and I mean time and time again are the Scent Elimination products from the Wildlife Research Center.
Scent Killer 99% is the best product you'll ever use and it's available at Wal-Mart so you can't really knock all the scent killer products wal-mart sells...

See its weird. One thing may work in one area and not in another. I havent been busted with the dead down wind yet. I did how ever smell the stuff yesterday and there is a smell to it. So now that I think about it may be its not so good. White lightening is still really really good. I dont care where you are there is no smell from it at all. Im gonna stick with that. I did how ever harvest two big bucks last year with the dead down wind. May be I just got real lucky

I use the Scent away (in a white bottle w/yellow label) and it works great. I have even done some tests of my own w/it. My wife has some scented soap, so I washed my hands with it and then sprayed the scent away on my hands (generously). And it actually took the smell away. It has NO odor. I ALWAYS buy the odorless. They make that stuff in earth scent or whatever and my "earth" ain't going to be the same "earth" in ill, or okla, iowa, or ark.
