Storage of hunting clothes

9 posts in this topic

I have been thinking of storing my bow hunting clothes in my garage because added room I have. I'm wondering thou, I should be concern of the exhaust fumes of the cars or the lawn mower, weed whip, etc. drifting into my scent loc clothing or I'm I being to over the edge in this thinking? Your comments would be welcome.

Thanks.

Put them in a large tupperware or similar tub. Wally World, Target, all the big places carry them.

Ditto!!! I just get a couple of the large stackable totes with lids that seal.

I give the clothes a scent free wash, air them outside, then place them in the bin loosely. Some guys like to throw in a scent wafer or something, but I just close it right up. No mice, no mess and no contaminating scents.

Last fall a Fleet Farm near me was selling Super Big Ziploc Bags for really cheap. I bought those, washed my clothes in baking soda, packed them away in the ziplocs, and put them in a rubbermaid tote. Very cheap and easy.

Thanks guys, good advise as always!! I will make a point to grab either plastic tubs or bags that seal.

What ratio do you use with the baking soda/water?

I use baking soda just like you would detergent in the washer. I'm sure that is what da_chise was refering to.

I use dry bags (like those made for the BWCA) for storing my hunting clothes. They are totally scent free and can sit in the back of the truck without getting wet.

Same here, dry bags for me. I'll take all my essentials (mask, gloves, outer layers, etc.) and throw them in the bag with either a natural earth wafer or a pine wafer or both. Seal it up and you'll have no smell issues come fall.
