    I use the fresh earth spray and the scent wafers!

    Scent killer laundry soap and broken pine needles or cedars will work for you cover scent. A laboratory can't produce what is already made by mother nature. I have found the best cover scents are already growing around my treestand!!!

    You can not cover your scent. What you can do it work on keeping the odors to a minimum. You have foreign odors, bacterial odors, and human odors. The first two can be easier to work on but you will always give off human odor. It's falling from your body continually.

    Animals like deer and dogs can pick out different scents on the molecular level and they can pick those out in parts per million. Just because one scent is strong doesn't mean it will over power another. If it did then a deer could not smell where you stepped walking across a field or woods. If we bend down and smell the ground were we stepped them all we smell is dirt, weeds, leaves, corn stalks, and so on. We can not smell the spot we stepped at all yet a deer can. Even though these scents are undetectable to us they can follow them at a fast pace. Thats because it can not be over powered with other scents.

    I agree with some of the others...best cover scent is to minimize your scent to as little as possible.

    Pistolarrows Custom Scent's (Best Cover Scent)

    Hello Seubank,

    The best cover scent is a cover scent from your hunting area, Pistolarrows Custom Scent's has done just this ! it is a all natural cover scent from your hunting area. Deer have some of the best known noises in the field. Humans have around 5 million scepters and can smell the difference in a orange or apple or can tell if you smoked a cigarette. Deeer have around 296 million scepters and can smell up to 9 different scents at a time. It would be like going to a buddys house that has two dogs and you can smell them, well its his environment so he cant tell the difference. So covering yourself with the animals environment does not alert them to a threating scent. check out pistolarrows.net and see for yourself. They have regional blends based on ecology maps from years of studies from your hunting area ! I personally have tried it and not only does it work awesome and is totally 100 % organic it smells great as well. I took some and put it in a candle that is meant for smell good stuff around the house and it burnt off the scent from my area. worked great, hope this gives you some insight on what works best and how a deer's noise works

    Most cover scents act as a masking scent. I think all we can really do is minimize the full effect of our own scent. I also think that an animal has a greater propensity to smell your breath more than anything else. Ever notice the steam in winter as you breath? The scent I use when putting clothes into storage is just one of those earth scent wafers and that cover up scent that smells like vanilla. I also use a spray scent as a wind indicator, not talcum powder. That way, cover or masking scent travels downwind of you.

    I agree that one needs to start by eliminating as much of their scent as they possibly can but then I apply Evercalm . Nothing better than sitting in the woods trying to find deer and then having deer trying to find you
    Take a kid hunting , it could be the most exciting adventure you've ever had !!

    I just use that Under Armor lava scent eliminator and that seems to work fine. Got a couple bottles at the end of the season a while back for cheap. Work good though.

    +1 on the Evercalm. I tried it last year. Most deer stop to investigate where you rubbed on the bushes or trees walking to your stand.
    Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me,

    I used the bleached bones of bridge trolls smashed into a fine powder. I mix the powder with the finest quality unicorn urines. And simply inject it into my heart. Or I'll just pray about it....

    Oh C'mon that was funny...

    I use Lowes whitetail scents "Buck Butter" Its a lot like ever calm but different application. Good news here is.....every post before mine was exactly right!! Whatever the answer is it works for them..and if my unicorn piss concoction worked it would be what I plugg. good luck and keep life fun!!

    I tried nose jammer and I didn't spook any deer away from me for sent reason. I had 4 does come directly downwind from me last year and I wasn't really focused there because of the wind and here them cross the river. So I'm pretty happy with it.
