If you smoke
As long as I could remember I couldn't get deer to come in closer than about 40 yards no matter what I did, or used to eliminate my scent. 6 years ago I quit chewing snuff. Since then I have had deer walking feet away without knowing I was there. If you are a smoker, have you ever tried the gum they make for your breath? Does it work? I don't smoke. I'm just wondering.

I hate to admit it but i do smoke now and than.I've never noticed anything that has to do with it as far as taking deer.3 deer last season,2 the season before that and so on.I'm not saying that it dosen't effect hunting,just doesn't seem to affect mine.I try not to light up but it can get pretty boreing at times in a tree.I've tried the gum but dosen't seem to help stop the craving and I quit a couple times but gained several pounds.Had a hard time looseing that wght.sometimes i'll switch and chew some beech nut.

I used to chew years ago. And have killed 2 does while they were smelling the leaves I spit on. Smelled like winter green. Now my friend whom I have hunted w/ since I was a kid. Kills deer every year. Most of the time he's shooting w/ a cigarette in his mouth.I would like to thank all my sponsers:Alpine Archery Pro Staff, Tru-Ball Releases Staff , Hydronics Archery Pro Staff,Victory Arrows Staff, Bohning Archery , Vibra-Check , TP Scope Lenses Pro Staff, Mossy Oak Pro Staff....

Had deer in the big woods walk under my tree and sniff a couple of butts I dropped by accident. No anxiety whatsoever. Happened several times over the years. Some might notice, though.
Now, a cough. Boy, do they ever notice that! I've watched deer react to a muffled cough from another hunter out of sight on several occasions. They alerted, stood and watched and listened for up to 15 minutes, and always went in the other direction.
Deer do like the Whacky Tabacy. To eat or to smell.
