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.

    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂
