What is your favorite scent removal for hunting?

Field and Stream did a study a few years ago and found that most scent covers don't work. Best thing is to be downwind of likely animal approaches.

I'd say hunting downwind. But I do spray on cover spray to possibly help out more. I buy the earth scent cover cause it smells like dirt, and I'm in public national forest usually hunting in different positions on ground.

I think, if you get upwind, they will smell you anyway. You can try, but the scent removal stuff never worked for me. I just try to play the wind to my favor.
If you smoke, use a cigarette. You can watch the smoke and see where the wind is blowing and swirling. I don't smoke anymore, so I use those talc wind direction indicator bottles. Someone on here once suggested a bottle of bubbles. I think that's an awesome idea.

I spray down with scent killer before I head out. However once I get to my area I spray my boot soles with coon pee and then spray all the trees around me from my ladder stand with coon pee as a cover scent.

By the time I walk to my spot I am usually sweating especially in bow hunting weather. I think hunting the wind and a good cover scent is your best bet.

I keep all of my hunting clothes in a Hunters Specialties scent bag all year with some fresh earth wafers thrown in. After several months in the bag it will take several washes to get the smell out. I also use the spray when heading in and again when I get to the stand.

Store your hunting clothes in Cedar branches in the bottom of a plastic tote. Keep the wind in your face or at a cross. That's what I do.

Thanks for the responses. I ended up purchasing Scent Killer for laundry detergent. I plan on buying a bag with the earth wafers to keep my hunting clothes in. Great idea.

Never bought into the scent cover / killer. The only thing that has proven scientific data is ozonics generator. I spend to much money on guns, ammo, optics, feed, blinds that are air tight, etc. to buy the ozonics.

There is a lot of convincing left to do for me to think that something I put in the tree about me kills all my scent. Not for me.

DO like the indians, sit in a TP with hot rocks in it until your sweating to death then run out the TP and jump in cold water.

Hiding scent from a deer is like hiding a dog biscuit from a bloodhound. Or blood from a shark.

Unless you've had your anus, taint, armpits, nose and mouth surgically removed, and don't shed dead skin cells or hair, they're gonna smell you.
