A hunters clothesline.

Nothing like the smell of the woods.
Before season I leave clothes in woods for weeks.

I've always grabbed a garbage bag full of leaves every fall. And then threw my hunting cloths in a bin of them all winter. It seems to work pretty well. Every little bit helps.

Redneck clothes line edition.

Wrap clothes around trees and tie.

Just be sure to not use a scented trash bag; some have perfumes in them to "cover" kitchen garbage odors.
(It doesn't work. Just smells like kitchen trash doused with really cheap perfume. Yuck!)

That is just a reminder that season is getting a little closer. I bought my hunting license yesterday. Our bow season starts on Sept. 25th.
I live to release an arrow and watch woods grow into chaos and then grow quite as a mouse in just seconds.

I’ve done something similar to this for many years. I drank the kool aid and bought scent blocking camo, packed my stuff in a tote lined with leaves. Wore only rubber boots when hunting...

This past year though I played the wind and planned my entry routes to my stand locations. I shot the biggest deer of my life quartering away at about eight yards wearing khakis, a solid green shirt, and leather work boots. (Mostly because it was hot!)

I still have that camo and use it when it gets colder and I can agree with you that anything you do helps. But I’m not as ate up with doing all of the scent controlling stuff that I used to do. That whitetail nose is just to good...

I agree hard to beat a deers nose.
I bought a full set of scent lok once but it never seemed that I saw more deer using it.

Now I just use unscented soap, baking soda, pine needles and leave my hunting gear in the woods. All that expensive stuff just isn't needed. I do spray my gear with Atsko uv killer after I buy it i dunno how much it helps but after taking a black light to my old realtree walmart clothes glowed bright blue I started using it for every new piece of gear I buy. A bottle last a few years so its no biggie.

I do think camo plays a big role bow hunting.
When I used to wear advantage timber I saw deer all the time.

Hunted for years in mossy oak and realtree after my advantage timber suit wore out and my deer sightings went down and I was busted more. Now I wear Asat does it help help I think so. But it give me confidence that in crunch time I'm not going to get busted by sight.

I have some sitka for cold days but I put asat leaf suit on over it. Im sure I could kill deer in khakis or olive but I wouldn't feel as confident in them.

I definitely won't be buying a ozone thing or scent lok mess ever again. I now assume a deer will smell me and counter it by having camo that is harder for the deer to identify where I am.

Green deception appears to blend in well at least to my human eye. First year owning predator have heard alot of good things about it. Though ill probably wear my asat pants, predator top most hunts.

From a distance It appears brown.

I know deer can't see much green but we shall test it out this fall.

Being im going to embrace the ground game i am looking for camo and cover that breaks up my outline of my head and shoulders. As far as washing it i just use non scent soap and play the wind.
It's all fun and games till someone looses an eye..... then its just fun

Don't get me wrong. I'm not a scent elimination guy! I play the wind, and have cheap mis-matched camo. I just do this because every little bit can help. And my cloths have to be stored somewhere all winter anyways 8-) Once the season starts I will rarely wash my hunting cloths for the entire season. And just hunt the wind.
