I dont pick up that chemical smell at all, not saying it isn't there, just saying I don't catch it. I kill my share of decent bucks, but I wasn't trying to give credit to this, just wondering if anyone else used it. I read it in a hunting mag years ago and decided to try it. I like it.
But I've long ago given up on using any type of gimmick to solve a scent problem. I belive its impossible. Im good friends with a prominent hound tracker here in Michigan. Hes done a lot to change my hunting habits more than anyone but Eberhart.
The dog and deer comparison is valid, with deer having a strong edge to boot. I truly belive nothing can fool them.
If it's working for you then keep right on doing it. Why change if it's working?

Anybody besides me wash their hunting clothes in Pine Sol? It has I believe 17% pine oil and its very strong. I use one or two cap-fulls in the wash, and hang dry my clothes outside if at all possible. I have said in other posts that scent control is a fantasy, and I do believe that. This is easy enough to do though, so why not? My hunting lands are full of pine trees everywhere, and many types at that.
Bro, wash them in apple juice. They'll try to climb the tree to get at you.

I remember back in the 80’s my dads friends putting splashes of vanilla extract on their boots or on some cotton balls that they’d clip on a tree limb & killing deer

My Uncle does this every season and I give him crap about it constantly because he smells like a candy store but it literally is like Pavlov’s dog when the bell rings and I’ve seen deer walk directly to his stand multiple times when he wears this stuff.
