    I drag a wick soaked in Fox Urine....seen it work to mask my boots scent. Deer ignore it.

    I take Balsam needles and rub crushed needles on clothes and hands. When setting up a trail cam, this technique works great to keep bears from smelling your scent. Its a cheap to use.

    i spend a lot of time hunting back in my country of origin,Ukraine,where we usually do a group hunt
    i always wash my hunting clothing with scent control UnderArmour washing fluid and i use odor spray from Basspro prior to going into the forest
    i get lucky pretty often shooting a wildhog or a deer and my guys always wondering how come?
    that stuff isnt available back there and i keep my secret

    Everybody is concerned about removing the scent from clothes and boots, but in my opinion, the biggest source of human scent comes from breathing (more specifically from your exhale) which you have no control over. All scent killers and masking products work on clothes but nobody talk about breathing. So we just minimize the scent using scent killers or using masking products such as cedar scent etc....
    As far as scent removers, I would rather using odor remover detergents which I think works better than sprays. For masking I usually use cedar scent spray or put a branch of cedar tree in the dryer.

    I wash my clothes in scent free detergent, buts thats about it. When hunting for deer, I ALWAYS, take into consideration the wind. thats the key for me.
