I'd rather be lucky than good anyday of the week. After seeing this sounder act spooked and skiddish, I realized that I've been wearing the same hunting clothes 3 nights in a row and I stunk to high-hell! They definitely we're picking up my scent, I'm surprised that they just didn't drop dead from the musky aroma coming from my sweaty clothes. I started to get very anxious because my shooting window was disappearing quickly. I finally had a chance for a clean headshot and was surprised to find that my 1 shot actually went through the head of the first hog and entered the lungs of the hog behind the first one! Dumb luck but I'll take it...
I may never get a two'fer again so I'm soaking it up now..
A big CONGRATS, and you will get more. We actually try for twofers. We just wait to line them up. They generally are just milling around and it can be done, but if they are skittish and running everywhere we pop the first one and hope another will stop for a curtain call.

Excellent on the hogs! I think I have gotten two-fers twice now. It is always a bonus!
As far as you being the cause for the hogs to be skittish, unless the wind was blowing right at them, then maybe not. Lots of things can cause hogs to be skittish. They are raising their noses to find out if they can smell a threat. If they smelled you, then likely they would be gone. They may be spooked and skittish, but there are lots of things that may cause that other than you.
To be honest, I am not sure that wearing stinky field clothes isn't a more natural scent for the field than clean clothes.
