    Only reliable way I know is to keep the wind in your face. I just heard from a guy at work that keeping some weed in your pocket helps...most likely just a stoner move though.

    I know a guy who kills elk pretty much every year for the last 15 or so years with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth the whole time. He laughs at us when we use scent blockers and such. Just always be down wind. He says he can see the smoke and knows what the wind is doing every moment of the day.

    Point is, it doesn't matter what chemicals or scents you use. If you get winded, it's game over.

    playing the wind is good but what happens when the wind changes ? the weed thing could be true but the o met and old guy at the mall and he told me he was a heavy smoker and the tobacco scent on him helped him a lot while hunting.

    You either change your setup, or you get busted. That's hunting.

    Even if all the scent blocking stuff worked, you still gotta breath

    Im with murdy ^^ Im betting that over 50% of the time, we hunters are getting busted because of mouth breathing and the associated odour de' jour of the last meal or whatever eats were last in there.
