I was getting ready for rifle season and found these. Probably from the early 1980’s or so. The cedar still smells exactly like cedar but the corn smells like moonshine lol.

Not sure what will end up getting me, but death by mudbutt is not the way I'm going out.

Burnham Bro's in one of their books wrote about Cedar as a cover scent, they would just peel the leaves of Cedar tree's, crush them in their hands and rub it all over. Worked then and works now.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

My uncle used a mixture of King Edward cigar smoke and Carling Black Label. He was not without habits, but he was thrifty.

Back in 1963 I build my mother an old fashion cedar chest to store her homemade quilts and stuff. When she passed I got it to store my hunting gear in it. I noticed it did not smell as much as I remembered so I lightly sanded it before I stored my stuff in it. I "still" hunt a lot with gun and bow and am very aware of scent so every year about two weeks before season starts I pull out all my gear and lightly re-sand it to get the max benefit of it. Two years ago I had a doe and fawn walk within 10 feet of me and never knew I was there. For those who might be interested I was in McCoy's yesterday looking for some wood and noticed they had some aromatic cedar stock that smelled pretty good. You might try getting some, sanding it a little and put it in some kind of storage system with your hunting stuff. Let me know how it works if you do.

I do the same thing. My brother built a cedar chest for me, just for that reason. I've had such success with it, now all the guys in the camp have one.
