I agree it's a good idea to try to stay as scent free as possible. That being said, I to sweat while walking to stand or as the day warms up. Many times I have carried my hunting cloths and put them on before I climb up to my stand. My buddy can't understand, he says he never sweats
Now, he does wash everything in scent free soap, sprays down from head to toe and has been picked up more than a cheap date. Personally I think he can't sit still but that's a different thread.
Agreed, during the heat of the rut things get crazy - not always a good outcome for Mr. Big. Sometimes I think a mature doe is harder to hunt than a mature buck - before, during and after the rut.
Thermals have to be taken into consideration - swirling while on stand is something you have to decide if your going to stay up or get down
Then there are the many different reactions to doe in heat scents. I had the chance one morning to observe 3 different reactions to a scent bomb. This took place over an hour by 3 different bucks. I stopped using a scent bomb after watching this.
Ever think the more you know, the more confused you get
