I did not read all the comments, but I've smoked my clothes for 15+ years now. I use wood from the shag bark hickory as well as throwing dried leaves in the smoker. Then I place the clothes, pack, anything that I hunt with in the back of my truck with the tonneau cover closed and let it smoke for hours. Prior to going to bed, I then put everything back where it belongs. As far as smoking my clothes go and fooling deer.
For the past 13 seasons I smoked up all my stuff. While not eliminating the human smell...the carbon on the clothes works to mix my scent and cover it as much as possible. I take scent free showers first and then I'll even go so far as allowing the smoke to make contact with my hair, and skin. So the past 13 seasons, I was able to get multiple deer per year...a couple of booners and decent bucks. Year 2021-22, I decided to forgo my smoking practice and went scentlok...I took scent free showers, keep my scentlok in totes that were scent free as well. That year was the only year in my 20 years of hunting where I did not get one deer on the ground. Probably because I was picky but also due to several deer winding me.
This past season, I went back to smoking my clothes and killed a decent buck and three nice sized does. Is it because I was less picky or because I was smoked up? Don't know...but I'll keep smoking my clothes and my body...like the native americans did.
