    I bought my fleece suit more for its comfort and warmth than the scent elimination factor.

    I may get shunned for this but we this actually take this with us on every deer recovery. Saves a whole lot of time and work. Maybe it's just me.

    I've seen it used about 3-4 times. I thought it took more time and made a bigger mess. But hey, if you like it who am I to judge.

    I have a friend that has carried one of these for years... of course, he hasn't killed a deer in years so has never had the opportunity to actually use the damned thing!

    I've never let him use it on one of mine. I figure they've been violated enough already with me putting holes in em they aren't suppose to have!

    H&S Pee bags-- Had several given to me by an out fitter once .. Claimed he didn't want you peeing out of his stands or in the hunt area ever... First use of one produced a nasty mess all over his stand!

    Never did tell him about it for fear he would stick me on the back 40 stand where no one sees anything....

    Got one of these as a gag gift for Christmas. I'm going to try it out this year just to see how bad it really is.

    We have used these for a while and they are pretty handy if you aren't splitting the pelvis. To each their own I guess.

    Xtreme Stabilizers made by 60X. He's shipped 2 to me so far and has not got my order right yet and they look like they were built by a 3rd grader. Glue dried all over the end caps a runs in the paint on the caps! Probably the worst customer service I've ever had too! My original order was placed on June 7th and I'm still waiting for what I ordered and paid for!

    Dog house ground blind, way too small to bow hunt out of.

    I agree with Sam on the Buck Bomb, have yet to see it actually work! I wouldn't include this next one really as the worst, but the pricing is the worst....Scentblocker, Under Armour scent block, etc clothing. As mentioned, any edge does help but playing the wind is key!

    Someone gave me the Primos bloodhunter spotlight as a gift and I have yet to find it to be useful

    Its a great light just not for blood tracking... and don't drop it in water. What it is good for is taking out a yote in dim light.

    Are you referring to the scent blocking power of the clothing or the clothing itself? I love my under armour. I had a big 3 in 1 jacket and bibs, I went to the under armour and am just as warm and it's about as thick as a hooded sweatshirt.

    As far as scent blocking, if you're relying on that, well you're going to get busted.
