I’ve recently started hunting over the last couple of years and while rifle hunting I have tried several scent control products and haven’t been completely satisfied with any particular product. I realize the importance of scent control and have tried DDW, Scent A-way, and Scent Killer. I have even gone to the extent to make my own spray, wash my clothes in baking soda, among other things. This year on my first bow hunt I was hunting private land and I was in my stand when a nice 10 came in through the thick timber. I watched him and as I sat there waiting for an opportunity to draw he turned his head away from me....I then stood up and drew....I couldn’t take the shot though because a small tree with some greenery on it was in the way. About 10 seconds later he turns and looks my direction, all I knew is that I needed him to move 6 to 12 inches to place the arrow in a kill area. As I was holding the bow back for 3-4 minutes I knew something was wrong when I could see him sniffing the air and staring my direction. At the end of that 3-4 minutes he turned and ran back through the thicket without taking a step forward and the rest is history. That day this last weekend has haunted me but also gave me an even greater respect of the Whitetail deer and it’s impeccable scent capabilities. Since then I have done some research and I have found how great activated carbon can be to adsorb odor. I realize that there’s clothing brands infused with activated carbon, silver, and zeolite....but I don’t want to invest the money into those clothing brands yet. I have heard that some guys have taken activated carbon and done different things to infuse it into their hunting clothing. Now, one thing I haven’t seen much of is the success of using these precautions. Are there any hunters out there that have used activated carbon powder that can document the success of it? What are your experiences.....good or bad? Thanks!
