    I'm sitting in a ground blind last night, and can't stop farting. My wife made this AWESOME butternut squash chilli a few days ago, and i've been having some like every day. It's so good I can't help it. Anyway, it's like every 1/2 hour to 15min at least, and it stinks in the blind. Am I just wasting my time hunting at this point. I mean, if I can smell it so strongly, a deer would be overpowered I would think.

    I was actually able to call in a doe to within bow range, but I wasn't hunting for doe's last night. I already have some venison, so I'm only after big bucks till after the rut. She blew and took off after getting within 30 yrds of the stand.

    Anyone else have any other experience like this?? Does that smell spook deer, or is it just human scent that sends them running. How bad is farting in the stand.

    Thanks

    deer will react the same way to your farts as I would. They will run the other way. Next time, take beano before you eat the food. Any foreign smell would spook an animal. Cow crap in the wrong place would put them on edge.

    That's kinda what I was wondering. I've seen guys step in cow crap on the way out because they say it's a good cover smell that won't spook the deer. I also know some people will pee in scrapes or right out of the tree, and others carry it out in a bottle.

    cow crap is a good cover if there are cows near by. but if you are 700 yards from the nearest cattle pasture, the deer are going to know something isn't right.

    I have a serious problem with this as well. I have tried everything, even eating just fruits and low fiber veggies days before the hunt. Best I can do is 3 hours and staying downwind. Let er' rip and I am good for another 3 hours.
    Beano has no affect on me. I have tried.

    Human urine does not affect deer in the area that I have hunted, but that noxious odor coming from your @ss might just send them running! Play the wind so you can let it "rip" whenever you want.

    I hold em in...not the most comfortable thing sometimes, but not worth the risk. I spend so much money every year and even more time just to try to put antlers on my wall and a little meat in the freezer. Would have to have to live with the fact that I got winded because I wanted to release a bit of pressure.

    My farts smell like roses, the problem I have is that there are no roses in the woods that I hunt. :poke:

    Just spray some estrus doe urine on your backside, It may send them bucks into a frenzy of Rutt Kuma Sutra, and you'll have a big one in range in no time.:deer:

    Fart into a bottle and quickly seal it up. Makes a great Christmas present at the end of the year as well.
