Has anyone ever used it? Is it worth the money? Any advice would be greatly appreciated

I personally dont use any of the wash products for your clothes.My wife washes my clothes with out soap and then I will place my clothes in a bag of leaves from the area that I hunt in a bag and let them soak up that smell of the area.Another thing I will do while walking to my stand if there are cattle in the area is to walk through the cattle dung and get it on my boots to help reduce my scent from my boots.I have no idea if this works as only the deer would know.I just try to reduce my scent as much as I can.

One can also let your clothes sit outside for a few days to reduce any household scent they pick up while hanging around.Dont use scented soap while you hunt or hair shampoo,after shave or anything that has a scent to it.This will also help reduce your scent from your body.You can even take it to the point where you watch what you eat during hunting season to help reduce the odor that your body releases.Probably the most important thing to do while hunting is to put the wind in your favor.

They always seem to come up with a new gimik to sell hunters to reduce scent.You can do alot yourself without spending alot of money.

I am not saying these products dont work,just that there are other ways to do the same thing.Some people will do all the good things and put there clothes on that were in the house while cooking food.Now you smell like a kitchen so what you did to your clothes wont matter.

What gets me about scent elimination in general is no matter how clean and scent free I am and how slow I walk to my tree stand in warm or cold weather with minimal cloathing on, I will be sweating big time by the time I am situated in the stand. Most of the time I am dripping sweat so I know the deer can smell the sweat!

I guess staying scent free all over your body helps as you walk to your stand at least, but I will be sweating for sure by the time I place an arrow on my bow rest. confused.gif

Ditto. I wash everything in baking soda and water in the washer, hang the clothes out to dry, and then keep them in one of those giant ziplock storage bags with leaves and dirt. I wash the clothes after every 5-6 hunts but I am usually wearing a base layer underneath that gets washed more often.

Not sure if this helps all the time...but I spray myself down prior to walking in the woods...and then I'll give myself another spray over when I'm at or in my stand.

Can't hurt...so I do all I can to stay scent free. The clothes and boots in a giant container is a must!

fin! i have that problem too. some of the things i have done to help are; give yourself a little more time to get to your stand, and sneak/stalk in and stop once in a while to cool down. another thing i do is too keep all hunting clothes, and clean regular clothes in a plastic bag. then part way to the stand i will change.( i use a back pack to carry most of my stuff anyway.)

i spray my clothes with a scent eleminator,then hang them outside for a few day. then place them in a plastic bag with leaves etc. i hunt from the ground only!! and this has helped me over the years.

To avoid sweating so bad, carry most of your clothes to the stand and then put them on. Give yourself more time so you can stop and cool off. And get into better shape.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
    • Fish Head
      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.
