to all you guys that use scent wafers, I have read that some people put them in bow cases, rubbermaid tubs with their clothing...how long do you leave the scent wafers in the case or tub before putting into its container to revive itself? thanks

They last a long time without having to be "recharged". I throw 2 in my bow case and they'll pretty much last all season. If I open my bowcase and don't smell 'em then I'll swap 'em with fresh ones. I don't store any with my hunting clothes because I don't want my carbon clothes to adsorb them but I do pin one to my hat everytime I go.

1 week with my clothes and 3-5 days in the bow case. My bow case still has the smell from last year.

i use the "previous seasons" discs that go into containers, bowcases, etc.

i usually have quite a few here and there. they add up quickly.

I bought 2 packs before this year. I put two in the plastic tub with my hunting clothes and every time i go hunting i put one on my hat. Like cornfed said they last a long time before recharging.

I have one on a hat I wear, in the bag with my clothes, and my backpack. I never thought about placing some in my bow case. I'll do that tonight! I replace them whenever I can't smell them. I sometimes put one in my jeep because I like the smell.

I usually use them for about 1 to 2 days on stand then they get tossed into the rubbermaid boxes at the end of the season i throw all the old ones out a toss a few brand new ones into the box.

They work great. I started using them last year and I didn't get busted by any deer. That's the first time that happened. I use the fresh earth scent.

They are a great little item, as everyone has said they last a long time and give off great scent. I use earth with my clothes, in my bow case, in my truck and my day pack. Wouldn't go without them.

i haven't

changed mine out since last year and its still going strong as of this past weekend. not sure what everyone else uses buti but the earth scent in it.

rodney,

from what i've been told and understood (while i worked in plastics for a few year we made items with scent in the plastic also), it is because the scent is made into the product case, so when you put the old waffer in it the scent just goes back into the plactic of the waffer kind of like osmosis. thus"recharging" it.

I have them in the back seat of my truck, I love the smell. I have the same problem, wife hates the smell. She doesn't drive my truck usually though.

rodney,

your right the little case doesn't smell as strong but you also got to remember there are other waffers in there to. those plus the case will add together and "soak" into the old waffer.

Gottem in my truck as well. I store them in my clothes box as well as my bow case. Which reminds me to get a couple of fresh containers.
