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.

    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
