    Awesome, so what “ exact vendor carbons” would you recommend? Is there a specific brand etc...that you use? And how do you know so much about carbon? Thanks

    I personally prefer a blend of Calgon WPC with a grind of Darco H2S for mercaptan/sulfide removal (farts). Overkill. Off the shelf coconut PAC is fine.

    Why do I know so much about this stuff. I'm a chemical / environmental engineer and hold a Ph.D. from UW. I've been engineering systems that utilize activated carbon (and ozone) for over a decade.

    Love it when BassBoys chimes in on activated carbon and ozone topics! I just sit back and wait for his definitive words of wisdom....

    Real science trumps testimonials and opinions. I believe Bass science

I'm not crazy on the scent control though these days. Most sits I hunt the traditional way. Important sits I'll do more. I have less important sits these days.

    Those boys over at the hunting beast have worked their way into my head too... I haven’t abandoned scent control but definitely paying a lot of attention to the wind last season!

    Don't let them fool you. scent control works if you want it to. Nothing wrong with no scent control. it's an easy way to hunt.
