Scent lock clothing??

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

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
