    Ok, I have a problem I have never seen posted before. I am very strict with my scent control. I have tried several different brands of body washes, laundry soaps, deodorants... But I have a problem with them all irritating my arm pits. I don't know if I just have sensitive skin or what, but they feel raw all hunting season. I am just about to the point of just going back to my everyday stuff. Does anyone have any input on this? Anyone ever have this problem?

    Have you tried arm and hammer or even a dove unscented antiperspirant? The "women's" brands are formulated to be more gentle on skin and achieve the same effects of the manly man sticks. No judgement here.

    I have the same issue, spent the last several seasons trying different brands with no success. Last year I went back to my everyday stuff, decided to stop worrying about it and it worked out fine.

    FWIW, I can't use anti-antiperspirant. Straight deodorant is OK. I had the same reaction as you, BigDaddy.

    Arm and hammer ULTRA MAX unscented works great for me I have sensitive pits and works like a charm.

    Try getting higher up in tree....works for me. (18'-25' depending on cover and terrain)

    I may use some Dead Down Wind spray on my camo once in a while.
