This may have been addressed before, so I apologize, as I am kind of new to this. Obviously the best thing to do is to stay out of the wind/downwind, but when the wind is not totally in your favor, what are the best cover up scents or methods that you guys use to cover your scent?

I've used fresh cow shirt, as long as you don't sit in a blind or get back in your truck soon after.

Cover up scents are only effective on [censored] sapiens (LoL ok Hemo sapiens). Deer have no problem picking up your scent only need a few molecules. If sitting in cow shirt makes you stealthy, go for it.

Can you really cover your scent? Just hunt the wind and be done.

Maybe not a coverup scent but an attractant imitation vanilla extract made by Bakers. I have sprayed a lot of it and killed a lot of hogs while using it.

I have a boar nut sack I cut off a big boar. I rub it all over myself every time I go hog hunting. Works great, give it a try and let me know how it works for you.

So here is my take on it... The best form of scent control is to play your environment as well as take advantage of what you can control.

Scent free detergent, soap, deodorant ect. There are some Scent Eliminators that work and some that don't. The one I use I made and I know it works.

But it does not matter how much you prep, spray, or what clothes you buy. If you do not play the wind you will eventually get busted.

There is NO tricking a coyotes nose that is for sure, some deer who are accustomed to certain cents don't pay it attention but you will not fool them forever.

Bottom line is use all the stuff you want for extra protection (an animal circling you down wind you don't know about, wind shifts in a tree stand, ect) , but your number 1 form of scent control is being aware of your surroundings, environment, and wind direction.

I don't think you can trick a hogs nose.

I use Polo - the deer think I am a Chris Chris from Big D and won't hit where I aim. False sense of security!

Sorry Sapper, but the first thing that comes to mind when I read this is “tea baggin”. Sorry that was just too easy.
