Scent Killer. Been there seen that.
Used to years ago... I don't even use the crap anymore.
Most likely lack of pressure, but we do overdo it.

I don't care if if it turns my bow pink. I'm spraying!.
Been ANAL about my scent for years. Takes a HUGE amount of commitment but....
If you alert ONE deer at the wrong time, could be a whole season wasted.
My bow gets sprayed with nothing, ever. I don't use any of that stuff. I hunt high, and with the right wind though.
Nope. I don't spray my bow or my arrows with scent killer/eliminator.
I don't believe it is necessary. Truth to tell, I didn't use a scent killer on anything for any of the deer I've gotten.
If I think about it I do. I spray the bow sling I carry the bow in mostly.
i might actually try this...
seems simply enough, just making tea...
LOL I know what your saying but I live in NY. I could sweat in an igloo, no matter time of year it is!
I dont even spray myself down with scent killer...
No, haven't in years. I do leave my bow and all hunting gear outside on the porch during season though.( I basically live in the woods)
Deer are not afraid of the smell of your bow. If you left it sitting on the trail over night with a trail camera watching it, you'd get pictures of deer smelling it.
I remember several years ago a piece of paper fell from the readers digest I was reading in the stand. I thought seriously about getting down to retrieve it cause I was afraid it would spook deer. The first doe that came down the trail actually picked it up in her mouth as she tried to figure out what it was. They are afraid of the smell of you, not your gear.
I only spray items that can absorb liquid and/or odor. Clothes, backpack and things like that. The 3D spray I use feels sticky when it's on my hands and dries so I don't like the idea of the spray drying on my bow and being sticky. I also think the bow is one piece of equipment the least likely to absorb scent you don't want. Everything else is 1000 times more likely to absorb scent. I also mainly hunt out of a blind and use an Ozonics unit. Being I'm a smoker, (not while I'm hunting), and the temps I regularly hunt in and sweat through, I need all the help I can get. It was 97 out here Saturday evening and probably close to 110 in my blind. I really don't know why I even bothered hunting.
I do sometimes. Not as much as I do with my clothes
