    all the years I chewed Kodiak...that never bothered deer... loud spitting...ya sometimes they heard that. (and funny as hell when your bud thinks he lifted his face net high enough to spit...but didn't quite make 'er.

    Smoking was similar... never had a deer bust me for scent of cigarette smoke. (they did bust me for movement while smoking, though). My brother and I called cigarettes deer calls because you knew when you lit one and were not really ready to operate your gun or bow that you'd see Bambi wander in :)

    I always have my lip packed, but I don't spit, so no bother with the face net.

    I have always chewed when hunting. I too have had deer come up and lick either the base of the tree or the leaves of where I was spitting. I really don't think it bothers them. They are curious as to what it is but not spooked by it. At least that is what I have observed. I need something to calm me down.

    I started chewing in 1966 while overseas. (it was extremely unhealthy to light a cigarette at nite). Quit in 2002 because my gums were so bad that now I have all false teeth. But I always chewed when I hunted deer. (never spit), and it never seem to bother them. Chewed Skoal Straight and I always figure it over powered my humans breathe.

    I quit about 3 months ago. I also had deer come right under my stand sniffing the spit.

    What on earth is a Zen breath??? :laugh:

    Is that like taking a deep breath except for having a joint between your lips???:biggrin1:

    Listen to you, "take a deep breath" It's so easy to say when you don't have a 140 class ten yards away, is hot on a doe and is beating the crap out of any brush around him. Then you rush the shot and miss low. I should have just taken a deep breath. Kind of like trying to get rid of my target panic. All you have to do is put that little pin on that tiny dot and squeeze the trigger. Sure sounds easy. :frusty: :frusty:

    Yeah I have been chewing for about three months.
    REALLY helps me calm down, Never had Kodiac though, up here in Canada is Skoal or Cope..

    I usually go for the cope long. <3 the sandpaper :peace:

    Mum isnt to crazy about it, but she figures I will keep my mouth shut and get in less trouble. only thing is since im underage I gotta get a three day scruff to buy the stuff.

    It really helps me shoot, or at least I think.. and it aint bad when your in a stand or on the stalk.

    Kyle,

    Good job Gator eye. I chewed for 20 years and have now been tobacco free for 5 years. Did'nt bother the deer at all..............it was the fella down the road that had his lower lip removed from cancer that bothered me. Life is too short. Please if you dip try to stop find something else for the nerves guys. :peace:

    Good for you to have quit, that stuff will eventually tear your mouth up bad.

    To say thast it helps you shoot is a terrible excuse to use something that will someday kill or disfigure you.... Life is too short find another vice.
