True deer are curios animals & Yes I am a smoker & also take my hunting seriously I try not to smoke in the woods because I am not sure they like it or not this may sound stupid funny what have you but I think it depends on the deer for example my fist deer was an 8 pointer 143 lbs stood on stand so long I could not take it any more I had to light up. I was just putting it out when I looked up & there he was directly down wind from me about 65 yards out & he just stood there watching me (he is hanging on my wall ) I have had deer blow & take off like a bullet & I have shot deer w/ a cig hanging out of my mouth so I think deer are like humans they either like it or they don't. I still try not to smoke unless I absolutely can't take it any more & I would have to say your chances are a lot better not smoking

Thanks for the insight guys. I don't think there is really any way around it, other to stay out of the cabin as much as possible and play the wind. I have several stands so I will just check the wind in the morning and play it by ear. I did find some scent free wipe/towels at cabelas last night that I ordered so I'll just keep all my stuff outside and wake up and run out in my scivies, wipe down best possible and hope for the best!

I was kinda thinking the same thing. I look at several forums a day but rarely post due to responses like that. I will say this one is by far the most friendly, respectful and informative that I look at. Seems to be quite a few guys/girls on here that have alot of hunting under there belt that are willing to help out the rookies like me.

Not speaking for anyone, but I think wmi being a trophy hunter wouldn't think of being around someone that smokes or an enviroment that adds to the human scent factor. I try to do the same as I use a steam sauna to de-scent along with sprays and a host of other things. Smoking is just as bad as not washing and we all know how deer respond to that smell. Family members that hunt in a different manner than your's makes for a tough situation. You can either do the best you can and hunt with them or hunt another area, they will ask why at some point and then you can debate the issue. No one smokes inside our camp.

I knew what you meant, remember lots of new/young hunters need your/our input. wmi, you've got more upstairs regarding big buck hunting than most, keep the knowledge flowing. HM
