Thread: Hunting clothing storage

  1. #1

    Hunting clothing storage

    How and where do you guys store your hunting clothing? I just purchased the thing below and was going to store my stuff out in my screened in porch. Might throw some branches or something in the bottom. My only concern (cuz I'm way anal sometimes) is that with the weather outside here in IA it might not be the best place to store 3k worth of Sitka gear. I want to keep it in the best condition as possible while still controlling the scent. Do you think the weather can mess up clothing stored outside? Tips? Suggestions? thx

    i use a portable storage closet that they used to sell at cabelas. i picked it up in the bargain cave about 6 months ago. it's awesome and i can run the hose from my log6 into it and hit with some ozone too. i also will keep my pack in there as well.

    Ziploc Big Bags XXL. i have no idea why more people don't use them. They hold up great and keep scent out. You can leave them outside and it keeps your clothes dry. I take my stuff right out of the dryer and straight into the Big Bag. I add an earth scent wafer and I'm in business.

    Saw this thread the other day http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showth...highlight=tote

    I use a rubbermaid container but mine's not that in depth. I usually just throw some baking soda in with the clothes and between the layers.

    These Iris totes are manufactured on the same molds as the Scent Lok units, only these are 1/2 the price (no carbon pad) and come in a brown color instead of green. They hold at least four hunting suits, and will stack up nice to get them out of the way; plus you can take it with you to put your suit on in the field. And if you go hunting where a plane trip is required then the size of the units are nearly perfect specs for "checked bag" size restrictions so you don't have to pay extra. Because they only come in a set of four, the extra one or two you may not need will make great Christmas gifts to your hunting friends and family.

    I use a wardrobe vacuum storage bag. It has a hanger hook on the inside and outside. You put your clothes in it, zip it up, then suck out the air with a vacuum. It keeps out air, smells and dirt.

    I usually dig about a 6 foot hole in the backyard and bury all my hunting clothes. Keeps them smelling like earth.I mark the spot with a big rock and dig them up next fall.A few of my hunting buddies have started to do the same thing. We also save money on buying bins.Only thing is sometimes if it is real cold you gotta get them in before the ground freezes or the snow comes.

    I tried that one year but got too close to the septic tank & they smelled like crap all season. Now I just hang them from the garage rafters in leaf bags.

    Also use the Ziplock bags XXL or XXXL whichever come 3 to a box. You can dry them with scented or unscented dryer sheets and put them directly into the bags.

    During the hunting season, I use a large tote that I put weatherstip tape around the top so it seals tight....with an earth scent wafer in the tote. During the off season, everything goes in XXL or XXXL Ziplock bagd.
