    I started using it mainly because i have a bad habit of smoking and i dont take smokes in the woods at the beginning of the season i chew but a fellow hunter claimed he had a big buck smell his chew so he left it in the truck and started the spearment thing & i tried it and i havent had a deer wind me in a couple of years i even think i get smoke in my cloths and beard from the night before so i put one in my mouth get it wet and rub it in my beard my shirtsleaves and hands I think it works!
    It cant hurt!

    I have used a lot of scent killers and found that a really good bath in HS Scents Earth cover works great. I will occassionally use the scent killer by HS on the way to the blind setup!

    The trick is to get far away from your truck down your trail if you dont ( the deer will back track to your truck) Pull it out in the dark and hold it outside of the path that your walking and dance it on the ground about every 3 feet!
    The doe doesnt p every inch go down the trail to your treestand or blind drag it past where you want the deer to walk & hang it in a overhang limb about 1 to 3 feet off the ground (around 20yds from your stand)
    Then check the wind and set the bombs you made 20yds up wind and 1 down wind from you!
    Get in your stand and wait 30min, grunt 3 loud grunts and stop,wait 10min.
    Keep doing this and add a few doe bleats.
    If theres a buck 100yds he will come if everythings right!
    Good luck!
    O dont start this until near the 20 of october unless it starts getting around 40degrees overnight start eariler!
    Hey Ken, that's great info. Thanks...

    That's not a bad idea. I have it growing in my yard from the previous owner... Maybe I can brew up some kind of spearmint cover scent...

    Naw, that might be going to far and over engineering things. I'll try the candy instead.

    The only stuff i use is Fresh Earth Spray/soap.In the middle of Aug i hang my 3 sets of camo,socks,hats,back packs,under cloths etc......out on the cloths line and they won't come back into the house till the end of archery season.I change out on the back deck than get in the truck and go.IMO theres no better sent control than Mother Nature.

    What if it rains the night before you head out to the timber ?

    Scent control is an all or nothing proposition. I have used Robinson Labs products as an important part of my scent control for years. I have seen some of the Earth scents that would spook Bears off a bait. It smelled almost moldy. I always prefer to be as scent free as possible, it works for me. Animals will investigate any new, unusual, or strong scent.

    I just prefer not to be under investigation if I can help it
