    Has anybody used Dead Down Wind products ? What are some good products for scent control ? I've mostly used scent killer and baking soda.

    I use any scent free laundry detergent, dead down wind dryer sheets, then I dust my clothes in carbon and I use dead down wind field spray. Never ever got busted using this combo even with a buck 10 yards down wind.

    I use HS products. I leave my clothes hang outside especially if I can catch a good rain on them. I let them dry and then they stay outside all season.
    Personally, I didn't have luck with DDW. That was just me. I hear a lot of people use it and love it.

    I had good luck with Carbon Synergy this year. Before that I used Scent Away and DDW, both worked fine.

    I use Scent killer gold, and dead down wind. Scent killer is my favorite, but I like them both

    I like carbon synergy too because they have some silver added in but I found that any old activated carbon works fine and it saves you money.

    I have used Dead down wind, Bone Collecter, Scent-Away, amongst others. No personal preference for me. Just be smart and play the wind.

    I have been using Dead Down Wind products for about 4 years now. I really like their products! Their Field Wipes are a "Must Have" to me. Their deodorant is the best I have ever used and I use it a lot before, during and after hunt season.

    I use vanilla extract and water in a spray bottle. Works fine for me.

    Be careful what you eat the night before and the morning of the hunt.
    Garlic is not a normal scent in my woods.



    (of course my neighbor who smokes while hunting still gets a deer most years???????)
