    Can someone tell me if Ozonics is worth the money? I'm really trying to control my scent this year and I have a friend who swears by his Ozonics. I need some input/insight

    The science behind it is definitely valid. However, I just don't see how it can be effective used in a treestand, there are just too many factors that you can't control. I do think it could be effective in an enclosed ground blind.

    Why not use the search bar on this sight. There has been some decent discussions on the product.
    Personally after two years of using it I woudnt hunt without it.

    I got a ozone machine for the house. 15 min of run time and the basement was no longer musty smelling. Need to shock the house to kill everything. But no doubt it works.

    Wouldn't use Ozonics if they were giving them away. Seriously.

    So when are you going to be allowed back in the house since the "smell is gone?"

    I don't have the Ozonics, but did purchase the ScentCrusher bag. I love it. I think it definitely helps, especially when you are gone away from home and can't wash your clothes.I know this is a duh statement, but nothing works as good as playing the wind in your favor.

    If every hunter starts dumping ozone in the woods it won't be long before danger is associated with humans and ozone. I'm going to use ozone to treat my clothes which is enough to kill any scent but not be an overpowering aroma that the deer will only get wise to.

    I set up a tent out in the yard before I hunt I have an ozone machine with a 30 minute timer, I keep all my clothing and equipment in the tent. I run the machine while I am in the shower go out and it is all good. I do all I can to eliminate scent and have different stands for different winds but ozone helps to make sure I am as clean as I can be. Do not normally get busted by even the old does.

    I have not tried ozonics in the timber and not a big fan of toting an ozone generator in the tree with me. Also do not like the idea of a constant stream of ozone pouring over me. Ozone has a very distinct smell and I figure if I can smell it the deer sure can. I did however make a scent free closet and run a much cheaper ozone generator in it to treat clothes and gear. It is an awesome investment!!!!!!!! I use to keep my clothes and gear in totes but now when I get home from a hunt I put them in this closet and run the ozone generator. Ozone is proven to destroy odors so it works at keeping my clothes and gear scent free before I hit the woods. I know going out that I am as scent free as possible but understand that there is constant residual odor being generated. I just try to hunt the wind even with all the scent control tactics. In my opinion there is just no need to haul a $400 piece of equipment to the woods with. Just my 2 scents.

    Really like that closet you have made. How do you seal the seams and around the door?
