    We walk in and I'll ride the four wheeler on a trail that goes within a few feet of two of our stands, never had a deer appear to smell the tracks plus they love to feed and make scrapes and rubs up and down this same area. Also I've heard good things about Ever Calm too but feel like I'm supporting high fenced deer farming if I buy it so I've held off. Just personal feelings nothing against anyone else using it.

    I try to find a mudhole to walk through. Mud and water up to the laces. Seen deer cross my entrance path and never been the wiser.

    Which boot are you wearing and which scent killer are you using?

    The ever calm stuff flat out works in my opinion. Have had multiple deer this week follow my exact steps to the tree I'm in and circle under me. It's was on sale for 14.99 at F&S last week as well. But I do still try to be as scent free as possible using all other tactics mentioned before.
