Just curious to hear about others' experiences. sorry, i know this doesn't help sell scent control products... but i really only use the sprays on my boots any more. last season, i had pretty good success just smoking myself down before hunts after getting busted repeatedly the prior year (when i was exclusively using sprays). pre-season, i hung all my gear in the ground blind, fired up the smoker, and let it marinate. then i would just do a quick maintenance smoke-down before heading out on each hunt. I noticed that i would still get winded by deer from time to time, but in a much calmer way. no blowing, stomping, or bolting. most deer would resume what they were doing I'm pretty sure i actually read about using hive smokers on this forum a couple years back, but didn't see any recent discussions in my search.
