JK! I Use Hunter's Specialties scent removal items (Soap, shampoo, deodorant, laundry detergent, spray, etc...) and rarely get winded, even when the deer are in the wrong wind. The big deal, after your careful removal of "unnatural smells", is to make sure you don't move abruptly, very slow motions to grab your drink or switch seating positions. These are the most important parts of not getting "busted".

Spray skin with hydrogen peroxide and put baking soda in your hair. Even then the deer will smell your breath. Watch the wind direction. There is nothing fool proof or completely effective to prevent molecules from escaping your body.

Hunt the wind is BS anymore, hunt the stand the dear are moving by. With todays technology in scent covers theres no need to hunt the wind. You dont even need scent lok, just wash your body in scent away soap and hair and then wash your cloths in UV scent killer soap and spray down in the mornings with scent spray. I also use fresh earth scent waffers. I had last weekend 2 does come in front of me at 1 yard off my tree base and I was only 12 feet up wind blowing right towards them and they never even looked up. Hunt the wind is dead people, hunt the dear
