Storage of hunting clothes

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
