    MAN I remember that. Once put it out up wind from my stand. Had to get down. Wind blowing it right to me. Made me sick

    Well, I’ve said this before. I don’t know if the doe and buck scents work. But I like to put some out or a little on the heels of my boots. Even if it doesn’t attract a deer, I feel like it covers my scent some. I try, but it is very hard to play the wind where I hunt. I wash clothes, bath in scent stuff, then spray down. All you can do is all you can do.

    Can’t cover your scent. I’ve tried it all over the years. I’m a slow learner but finally come to the conclusion it can’t be done. Just think of all the smells in nature. If they couldn’t differentiate between them they could never smell you or another deer. So you can pile on and scent but it won’t work.

    Heard a biologist compare a deer's sense of smell to our vision. Just like you can see 20 different things in one room, a deer can distinguish 20 different smells upwind. Yeah you might smile like fox pee and skunk, but you also smell like human. I do what I can to limit my scent but you cant cover it.

    How do you store it? How do you keep it from going bad? I was thinking of doing the same since I have lots of cedars. thanks!

    I put it in spray bottles. It last for a couple of years. Then I make some more.
