    i grew up hunting whitetails in northern wisconsin from tree stands never having an issue with scent. I have moved to idaho and taken up elk hunting which as we all know is not something that can be done in from a tree stand. everyone swears by the new scent lok technology i just dont know if its worth $250 for what seem to be long underwear. any input?

    Actualy you CAN hunt them from a treestand. But I'd invest in the "suit". They work believe me.

      they can be very effective, as long as you properly clean and store them.

        I own a ScentLok suit, but I wouldn't swear by it. From a scientific standpoint, the carbon fibers in the suit that help you refrain from exposing your scent can only be 'reactivated' at really, really hot temperature....a temperature that your dryer cannot attain. In any case, I still wear one b/c it is likely that it does help at some level..and it gives me a little extra confidence. At the end of the day, just hunt the wind direction and thermals; it's your best shot at not being busted.

          As an Idaho hunter I can tell you that what is more important than scent control is learning to correctly count pts on a deer or elk. (count 1 side) there is nothing worse than hearing an eastern hunter call his 6X6 bull elk ,a 12 point bull.
