    What is the best scent elimination spray?

    After using numerous scent elimination sprays over the last few years I would like to know what you think is the best one out there. Are there any that just don't work? Right now I use Primos and have had good luck so far. What about you guys (or galls).

    I always go with whatever is cheapest and assume that none of them actually do anything I'm quite pessimistic when it comes to believing the marketing of many hunting products. Yet they still get me to buy some of it !!

    Scentkiller is what i've always used, and i've liked it. For fun I think i'm gonna try dead down wind this year just so i can say i've tried other stuff.

    Thumbs up Dead Down Wind

    I'll try not to turn this into a long drawn out post...but I read some info on another post about a certain chemical being used in another product that was supposebly harmful and not to be sprayed on the skin......so I did a little research.

    Dead Down Wind is the only product out there that is 100% ALL NATURAL, no harsh chemicals, no masking scents, just sound science. They are using nature against nature to fight human odor. I used some of their products last year and was pleased with my results...so this year I'm gonna try their "3 step system". They have a complete "kit" you can buy that has everything you need to be as scent-free as possible.

    Dead Down Wind gets my vote.

    Good luck and good hunting

    Absolutely nothing wrong with your thinking...more people should question things and not blindly follow. I too have had a few "duh, why did I buy this" moments in my day !!

    Dead Down Wind for me.

    I've had several deer come in from down wind and didn't even know I was there. Even had one sniff the climbing sticks on my tree and still go to eat corn.

    I have tried Dead Down Wind and it seemed to work as well as the rest but I cant understand how a scent eliminating product would have a scent? It does more than most. Shouldn't it be scent free if it worked?

    I use Dead Down Wind, but always back it up with a dirt bath and pine branch scrub when I get close to my area.

    Another vote for the Apparition Scents product.

    Also NO ODOR by ATSKO is very good.

    I only use scent killer autumn formula to spray myself down with, but the secret is I leave all my hunting clothes and gear in a large tote that has dirt scent dryer sheets in it and I throw dirt scent wafers in there also and leave them in there all year long works great. in fact I even had a nice up and comming 8 point this past weekend come and sniff my rope in my stand then proceed to bed down 40 yards away from me for 45 minutes he never knew I was there.................

    yall are nuts.. but i have to admit pretty dang funny though.. i have used scent killer products in the past but Wally World had the Primos on sale at the end of last season so it got the nod for this year. I did not know that Dead Down Wind was all natural and that is never bad for most things. I was hunting last night and had 5 does come with in 35 yards.. 4 went by down wind no problem.. one blew and ran about 40 yds and went back to eating, not sure if it was me she smelled or something else.. i had farted about 3-4 mins before she showed though.. could of been just clearing her nose..
