Generic Scent clothes??

Recommended Posts

Bassboy1645

Was at a mall sporting goods place last night and while "looking" at hunting gear i caved in a purchased a set of moisture wicking camo longjohns that are scentshiled or something like that?? Its not scentlok and its way cheaper. It was like 30 for the shirt and pants. Does this generic scentlok stuff work?? im gonna find out for sure next fall im guessing but anyone have any experiences they feel proves or disaproves the claim?? thanks!

The topic is always a point of debate every fall. Yes it works, but it can't replace a proper scent reduction regiment. In other words, don't plan on the clothes being your only way to cut scent. If you treat it like another part of scent elimination it will work. I don't use any of the carbon clothes and I've seen plenty of deer within 10yds.

Sounds like you found a great deal on hunting clothes. Go for it.

It doesnt hurt to have all the protection that you can have but you cannot get careless just because you are wearing it. Over the years I do believe that you can get away with much more with the doe's than you can with a mature buck.

My son and his buddies all see more mature bucks than I and they all go to every extreme to see them. I dont do nearly as much as they do and it shows in the number of deer at close range.

I would say got for it and do all the other things right and you will be better off for it.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
