To answer your question, I try not to, but if I have to I do. I guess to funniest story I have from hunting was last year while sitting in my stand, I had to, as you say it "break wind". Well I look around a bit to see if I could see any deer, and there were none around, atleast I though there were none. As soon as I did it, from behind my stand I heard a doe blow at me. I did everything I could do to keep from laughing. I know a guy that does that all the time, and he wonders why he does not see that many deer.
But may call attention to your position in a tree or blind. Nor have I seen were human urine spooks our deer. Last saturday, natured called. Sunday morning the area had been pawed and scraped and urinated in by at least two different bucks.
About a month ago, my buddies and I were hunting out of an elevated blind (read: Hilton on stilts) and we had 3 young pigs eating corn below us. I was filming and we were not planning on shooting these 3 small porkers so my buddy decided to "test" the effects of farting around pigs. Upon the explosion, and it was loud enough for them to hear clearly, the largest boar backed up quickly and tried to get his head high enough to see into the stand, then snorted and went back to eating corn. The stand was shaking from our silent belly laughing but the pigs were pretty much unphased.
These were young pigs and I am sure the same "test" we offer different results around deer or mature, hunted boars.
