    Ok, I'm convinced

    Richard, don't knock it until you've tried it

    Going through all the trouble with the pine needles, leaves and weeds and such for scent cover sounds like a lot of bother to me. It might be easier just to shower now and then and of course it does help somewhat to change your shorts at certain intervals and your socks too if you are often walking through cow crap. But then if you are not in the habit of changing your shorts, you could probably forego the stroll through the cow crap and save some time !!

    6P, I'm not understanding why you're making such a big deal about using cover scents. Just play the wind correctly and it doesn't matter what you smell like. As far as the other methods, I see you've been pushing your use of fire smoke on this site for at least 6 years. Don't you think it's time to give it a break? I've got no problem with you hunting the way you want. My problem is in your self proclamation that you're the expert when it comes to deer hunting. The rest of us are also killing deer every year. It's really not very hard so please stop acting like you have some kind of special knowledge.

    Nothing wrong with that strategy, I just don't think it's necessary. And I actually agree - proof is when you put them on the wall. That's why I believe scent control is massively overrated. I've been paying less and less attention to it (other than keeping the wind in my favor, I do that religiously) every season for the last 4 or 5 years, and I have been very successful over that time period. Why should I go to extra work to try to eliminate or cover up my scent when I'm killing mature bucks without doing so?

    I've heard of guys doing that. Never been that concerned with scent control, myself. You can do whatever you want, but I am plenty successful without purposefully walking in crap.
