Hanging Clothes outside

Recommended Posts

CC Hurl

If you guys are Like me you normally hang your clothes outside to air out when your not in the woods.

Do you leave them out in the rain or bring them in somewere?

Just wondering if the rain leaves an oder affter drying.

Also anyone use them Tinks Carbon bags to put your clothes in? I got some a while back and have not yet used them. I still use the heavy plastic bag and carry clothes into the woods before changing.

Hope your all having a good season so far. I am as i have meet in the freezer as of last saturday morning. Nice doe at 25 yards. Ran 20 and fell. Double lung pass thru.

Gotta love it.

Good luck and be safe,

I hang mine outside most of the time. I keep them in a big old shady tree. Lately with all the rain I decided to try something different. So after they dried I filled a rubber tote full of leaves and stuffed all my stuff except for the bow in it. Last night I had a nice doe come through downwind at 20 yards. No clue I was there. So far so good.

I keep mine in scent free bag from H.S. I wash them with the scent free soap and put them in the drier and straight into the bag. I change before and after entering and exiting the woods. I also take scent free shower before each hunt when bow hunting.

try a cheap tote with a lid from walmart. depending on where you hunt, pines, oaks, field edge, buy the same area scented wafer. like the earth scent, which i use. throw the wafer on top of the clothes and close the lid. clothes may smell strong like the wafer, but shot a nice 8 pointer second weekend at 12 yards. Just from kneeling in the grass on the ground. just kneeling there, no blind! Proved success crazy.gif

this is what I do to a tee, works well for me, except I get the basics put on at home and I will put on a coverall suit that I wash with the clothes as well, takes some of the work out of getting dressed out in the woods, it also makes a good atv suit for not getting stinky, and makes one heck of a fashion statement.

Since I've had two of the HS clothing bags fail on me now, (the seal strip tears loose from the top edge of the bag) I've discovered Ziploc Big Bags. The XXL size works best, since it has room for all my camo, my insulated jacket and the orange vest for gun season.

You can get a 4-pack of the Ziplocs for about 7 dollars and with their double-thick top section, built-in carry handle and double sealer strips, they are much more heavily made than the HS bag, which costs about that much for just one bag.

I wash mine in scent free soap and then again in "dirt flavored" grin.gif Then I air dry them on the line and put them into some of my old river rat drybags from my time in CO. They are the same as the HS scent bags and I already have them. I also sit in a pine so I have a pine scent wafer as well as a dirt wafer. I try to put them where I feel the most wind hitting a certain part of my body on any given day. Seems to work well.

Sodajerk,

you beat me to it but that's what i did. Purchase the 17 gallon or larger bags with handles and they work great. I have a bag just for socks, pants, shirts, hats, and gloves. Then another for bibs and jacket. This is the cheapest way to keep your gear scent free and away from any contamination. I sometimes hang my clothes outside if I know it's going to be sunny and warm but do keep in mind that if your neighbor is mowing the lawn and the smell could carry into your yard from the exhaust.

I'll have to buy one of those zip lock bags. My H.S. bag gets pretty full once the colder season rolls around and I don't want to spend the $ on another H.S. bag.

I washed my clothes a day before the season opened and they have been hanging in my apple tree out back since I took them off opening day. When I go out I wear the clothes that I have sealed in a container and then before I walk out into the woods I put the camo on out of the tree wink.gif

      Ice is going fast!  The sun is high and powerful, we're flirting with 70 degrees and the forecast looks promising. I'm feeling pretty confident there will be a lot more open water then most are expecting.  
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      There will certainly be some areas of open water to fish by the opener! Pike Bay ice is deteriorating fairly fast now. Other small shallow bays are probably not far behind. Cliff

      18 days to opener,  I hope there is some open water we can fish.  our group can't reschedule due to work issues.  Come on Sun/Rain!!!  Our golf courses are just opening up today!!  smh

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On!

      Well monstermoose78 is done ice fishing around here for the year. Why you ask I fell through yes there was 28-30 inches of ice on the lake, but the shoreline nope. Went fishing with @Cret Jigs and we had fun fishing. I cut lots of holes and we got some good ones for the knife. Cret jigs brought a plank for the way out but on the way in I did not make it to the plank. Cret jigs helped me get my stuff to the shore and out. I worry about the guy on the wheeler and they guy who used the plank to get out too. Thanks Cret jigs for a fun day.

      To all you guys who’ve been keeping us posted, thank you. I’m an islander so I don’t have much hope for the opener, but I’ve been reading all the posts (read them year around), including entertaining posts on new gear, and, again, thanks for letting a lot of guys know what’s going on there. The current weather, forecast and web cams, give me hope! I’m thinking I may get back home in three weeks, maybe four. Keep the sun shining, Dick
