Scent Control Tips for Whitetail Deer Hunting
Whitetail deer are notoriously difficult to hunt. They have an incredible sense of smell, and can easily detect the slightest human scent.

If you’re serious about whitetail deer hunting, you need to take steps to control your scent. Here are some tips to help you do just that:

1) Avoid using heavily scented soaps, shampoos, and colognes when you hunt. If you must use them, do so sparingly and make sure to wash thoroughly before heading out. Get rid of that stinky air freshener in your truck. No need to smell like a Pina colada!!

2) Invest in some quality scent-control clothing. This includes items like coveralls, hats, gloves, and boots that have been treated with a scent-eliminating spray. ScentLok and other popular carbon and high tech fabrics can make a real difference in your scent signature.

3) Store your hunting clothes in a sealed container with a handful of an odor absorbing or cover scent dryer sheets. This will help mask your scent even further. The sealed container will also keep out all the foreign scent you are trying to avoid.

4) Take extra care when handling your weapons and other gear. Wipe them down with a cloth dampened with scent-eliminating spray before heading out into the woods.

5) Use an ozone generator or keep a supply of activated charcoal on hand to help eliminate odors around your campsite. Ozone generators do work but remember it is not healthy to be exposed to ozone for long periods of time. Ozone will also cause rubber in boots and bands to deteriorate so pay close attention to their exposure. 

As you can see, there are a few different ways to control your scent when hunting whitetail deer. Some of these methods are more effective than others, but it really depends on the situation. If you’re serious about hunting deer, then you need to be serious about controlling your scent. Try out a few of these methods and see what works best for you.
