Default scent control on blind?

Having bought a new hunting blind, I cant help but notice the (new) smell on it. I currently have it set up out back in hopes to alleviate some of the stink, but should I spray it with something brfore setting it up in the woods, and what do you all recommend? Thank you,
Doug in Pa.

Also, I forgot to ask, Im shooting with a release, and while I dont expect to hunt in exteme cold, what do you folks use for a lightweight glove and how does that work when wearing a release? Thank you.

Leave your blind outside for about a week all set up that will help. spray the no scent solution will help too. Another thing I would do is Put a earth scent wafer in a duffle bag with the tent. I do this to all my clothes. Works for me.

Your going to have find what is the most comfortable for you One of my favorites is buy a pair of gloves you like and cut of or trim the fingers that you use on your release if you do not fell comfortable will full gloves this can help. I used to do this when I used to fish bass tournaments in the extreme cold.

an with the glove thing if you are going to be in a bling u could even wear a thick or heavy weight glove just leave it loose an when you are ready to shoot very quietly slide it off

Hey thanks a lot everybody. Next, I have to find a cheap seat. Do any of you have the spin around seats that fit over a 5 gallon bucket?

Those will work but they make noise good for duckhunting . I would go to academy sporting goods and buy the fold out seats for about 10 bucks. They seel a large/small size. Thats what I am using. Whenever possible I test my gear out before I hunt if it makes noise That piece of gear does not hunt. Just a thought.

You guys can save a lot of money by buying Ingerdients from the grocery store. Wash your clothes in baking soda. Instead of 6 to 8$ buck salt licks buy a few boxes of salt, Get some plastic jars of peanut butter cut the bottom off and screw the lid to the tree deer will tear it up. Total cost salt,peanut butter,baking soda, around 6$.

Always looking to do it better cheaper.

If yall guys have any cheap thing's you doo or make please post.

I thing that I found that is real expensive it clover seed. If you buy it buy the pound at a nursery it's about 2 bucks cheaper than those 40 buck bags of seed. Witch I will never buy.

This year I will try to buy some real earily like to see if it's cheaper. When the season come close the prices go up.
