Generic Scent clothes??

3 posts in this topic

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.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
