I don't mean to hijack the thread but what do you guys use instead of scent blockers?

I've never even bought a bag of corn .........probably because baiting is illegal here,I'm not a farmer,don't have a garden so I have no use for 1 .
The camo makeup I use comes off with soap and water .

Nothing,,,I hang my hunting clothes on a clothesline after I wash them (doubt it really does anything but makes me feel better) and hunt the wind.

It's not bait, it's spillage. If the grain is scattered down a tractor path or a path to a livestock pen, no one can call it baiting. There are no laws against hunting over crops left in the field or spilled while being transported.

You don't hunt right over the spillage. You hunt the trails going to the spillage. If you shoot a deer over the spillage the rest of the deer will go nocturnal when they feed on the spillage.

For dove hunting I have seen people plant sunflowers. A week or so before dove season opens they bushhog the sunflowers. The crop wouldn't grade out as acceptable or the market closed before the sunflowers matured. Both are acceptable farming practices and can not be called baiting.

In wisconsin the game wardens will confiscate your firearm maybe your vehicle if they catch you sitting or walking with a rifle bow handgun or shooting deer near "spillage" or with seed or feed in your pockets pack or vehicle to include empty packaging.

Nothing just stay down wind. Deer have superior sense of smell. To a deer if you use blockers you smell like a human using a scent blocker. Scent blockers are used to seperate hunters from their money. There is no way to get around the issue of scent other than staying where the buggers can't smell you.

I've done a few things for scent cover that seem to work OK.
Smoke the clothes over a campfire.
Store them in a container full of leaves.
The best bet is to stay down wind.

Some interesting ideas, and I agree that the deer have a great sense of smell and I have never used scent blocker.

I just don't wash my hunting clothes with soap and I let them dry outside in the open air.

Seemed like a good idea at the time, until they started trying to shoot me out of my stand....

Some of the more dedicated deer hunters here in Australia use Eucalyptus oil which is an extract from our native gum trees to hide their scent from the deer and some face paint or grow a beard or use a hat to cover their faces while stalking/laying in wait near any wallows or game trails.

Using a scent/spray that is a more natural smell to deer or game will certainly go a long way to covering up any man "smells".
