    What is your guy's opinion on scent-lok gear? Does it really work or are you just spending way more money than you should for camo?

    Wash clothes in baking soda with borax. Air dry outdoors, place in plastic bags add optional pine branch. You wash in ivory soap. Stay upwind. Scent-lok is overrated, I seem to remember a study done a few years ago that indicated scent-lok was making false claims.

      Clothing is the Cost$$$ I don't know any one in my Club that uses Scent-lok..so I can't say any thing about it.

        I don't use any scent reduction products and I do just fine. hunting gear is already expensive enough, there's no need to spend more money than you need to.

          PAShooter is correct they were sued over their claim of being "Scent Free" or some claim similar to that. I think it is overrated but that is my opinion.

            PSShooter nailed it. Better things to spend your hard earned dollars on.

              Spend your money on ammo and junk food. You'll get more out of it.

                Hey guys, when I was younger, I worked part time three nights a week in a night club.
                I had every possible smell on me at closing time. Such as cologne, customer cigarette smoke, perfume from hugging the lady friends that I knew and an alcohol beverage at closing time at three in the morning.

                I would rush home change into my hunting clothes, grab my bow and didn’t have time to take a shower. I then drove an hour to my hunting location.
                I walked an hour in the woods to my eighteen foot tree stand. I wore rubber boots and I climbed up the tree with strong rubber gloves on.

                I saw plenty of deer and I never heard a deer snort me once.
                I could have been covered in Limburger cheese, and they wouldn‘t smell me.

                The secret is to hunt a high tree stand and being down wind.

                  Wash your clothes in one of the scent removal detergents and bathe with one of the scent free soaps or body wash or at least do both with non-perfumed products and watch the wind. Scent Lok has been proven to be marginally effective. No reason to go into the wood smelling like a gas station diner to tip the critters to a strange smell that puts their other senses on higher alert.

                    The tallest stand I hunt is about 7' above ground.
                    I do not use any specific "scent" products for myself or my clothing.
                    I kill deer every year. (So far!)
                    What little camo I do have, I usually purchase when it goes on clearance.
                    The only critter I camo up hard for is turkey and they couldn't care less about odors.

                    Nope! No scent-lok for me!

                      My opinion is scent-lok is only good for lightening your wallet. Like others have said, use the scent free hunters soaps, get rid of the smelly laundry detergents, and keep your hunting clothes away from the gas station. I also feel many commercial cover scents are unnatural and can alarm the deer.

                      Camo is way overrated. I would venture to say more deer have been killed by men wearing checkered wool, or good old Carharts. Just sit still!

                        The guys who wear it may have more success but my personal opinion is that they also hunt harder and play the wind, terrain and everything else to a higher degree than average.

                          When this question was asked before, someone responded if it worked really well, every drug runner would be wrapping his goods in it to frustrate sniffing dogs.

                            On the other hand, it couldn't hurt.

                                Body cam footage shows Floyd wasn't murdered. The cop kneeling on his neck might have been negligent, but his actions did not kill Floyd.
