I contend that climbing a tree and shooting a deer in 5 minutes is much more difficult challenge than hunting for a month straight before killing one.
I love when people say "I hunt the wind, that's all I need". I always find this comical.
First, anyone with half a sense of what they're doing while deer hunting is playing the wind. It's deer hunting common sense 101. Wind is blowing from stand into area you think deer will be coming from or moving to on their way to you? Don't hunt that stand. Okay, we got it.
But when happens when you're hunting hill country where the wind is NEVER constant? Or what happens when a buck is coming in and you're undetected because you're so good at playing the way and you get a little swirl of wind that kicks back in his direction? Or what happens when a deer simply comes from a direction you don't think they're going to come from?
My point here is that "playing the wind" isn't as simple as people make it out to be. Wind direction is rarely consistent and never a guarantee. That's why I prefer to take every possible precaution I can just in case I get into one of the aforementioned situations. For me that includes scent eliminating clothing, soaps, sprays and anything else I can get my hands on that may mean the difference between success and failure. It doesn't mean that I'm not "playing the wind".
None of the above is "an easy way out" or make the person lazy, its just an additive to be successful. I was just asking opinions as to whether ozone is effective. I've concluded that it is, so you don't need to stir things up.

I've used a gnarly O-Zone Gen on my car once. Definitely does kill smell, but if you inhale too much of that stuff it gives you a gnarly headache.
