    Just saying..... Scentlok in bags. Dressed in field. Showered with scent control product. Young buck in no problem. He leaves. 30 min later deer states snorting 60yards away what should be be upwind, but no noticeable current yet. Runs off blowing Big bodied deer. End of morning hunt

    If only I had ozonic

    Looking forward to 10mph west wind this evening.

    I just started using one and I'm not sold on it yet! Me and a few doe's had a moment opening morning. They couldn't figure out what was going on but they sure knew something wasn't right! I learned the hard way the battery needs to be charged after every hunt, mine was dead when I shot my buck Sunday afternoon.

    Too hot for me yet. I moved a couple stands this morning in preparation for cooler temps this weekend, sprayed down b4 going in but by the time I was finshed I was sweating buckets. Hope we get a hvy rain to rinse my scent out of the woods. Hats off to u guys that can take the heat.

    This breeze is nice. I've hunted 4 evenings now and this is the first with a nice consistent breeze. Hope the buck that was in here at 7 this am comes back...
