Scent lock clothing??

10 posts in this topic

Scent lock clothing, do you use it?? Would you buy it again? Base layers or jackets and pants?

ive got the jumpsuit kind. just couldnt justify spending another 50ish just to have seperate pants and top. plus, theoretically it should be more scent containing since theres one less place for it to escape. I like it. Dont know how many more deer ive seen because of it, but it does help you keep on the ball about scent control and prevention.

Last year on opening day of bow season I had 4 bucks walk into the wind from 400 yards away. They walked right under my stand at 5 yards. Two 2.5 year old 9 pointers and a fork and a five. They walked right under my stand and never winded me. I take many precautions to make sure I am as scent free as possible including my scent look suit. I don't know if the scentlok suit was the key to the circumstances or not. It certainly didn't hurt. Regardless I was impressed that 4 bucks would walk by at that distance without smelling me. Id buy it again in a heartbeat.

i realize there are lawsits happening. However I am sold.

I think that it works very well. My only problem with it is that I get way to hot in it..just sitting in my stand not walking just sitting there feels like a sauna..but I have had a number of deer aproach from down wind.

I use it and love it, never buy it preseason, always post season, its much cheaper. I have a hard time playing the wind because the deer can come from well, just about anywhere. Also, in the bluffs, the wind likes to swirl and there are updrafts and downdrafts. Its very hard to play the wind, I am very cautious about scent. Since starting to use it, I have not been busted by smell. However, I also have a pretty strict scent regimen including showering with scent free soap before every hunt.

I exclusively use Scent Lok while bowhunting as I've had very good luck with it. I've definately noticed a difference since I began wearing it.

People have to remember though you can't just wear a Scent Lok jacket and pants expecting the deer to not smell you. Head/face, neck, hands, and feet all emit scent and you have to take care of all areas to ultimately keep your scent to a minimum.

I have used Scent Lok for 5 years now and love it. I am actually going to replace mine this year. Not because it doesn't still work, but the technology is much better now. I have the Savahna suit and I think I am going to get one of the fleece options. I don't have scent lok blaze orange or heavy jackets, but I do wear my Savahna suit underneith my heavy bibs and jacket and it seems to work very well. I touched a spike with my barrel 4 years ago. Thats how close he was. Ever sense that I have been a firm believer that it works.

you also have to shave your entire body all of it every inch if you really want elimanate scent you lose on average of 100 hair strands every hour also hair holds more scent than any other part of your body

    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
    • Ya I don't know do I dare say I almost like it better than deer hunting... Cant sit with him tonight but came up with a game plan wouldn't be surprised if he sticks one tonight  
    • I am still hunting yet Moose. I go to Nebraska in a few weeks. I am archery in mn. starting to see more active birds. Going to wait and shoot a tom. Nice having 4 birds already on the team. How does a guy post pictures right from your cell phone to here so I can post Dillons info on his tom.
    • Went out today in the metro areas without any luck. Didn't even see any ramps in the usual spots, and I thought they were earlier than the morels.
