    Scent Control

    How do you keep your scent down when you're chasing animals in the backcountry? Seems like it is pretty tough as I have never hunted the backcountry, only scouted.

    scent control in the backcountry?

    Keep the wind in your face, young grasshoppa.

    If you have a bunch of money for something that likely doesn't do anything, you can use "scent killing spray" and all of that other stuff.

    sometimes I think whitetail hunters would buy and rub dog sh!t on themselves if one the "celebrity" hunters said he kills more deer by doing it.

    I use the dead down wind concentrate packets and fill my spray bottle up with creek water so I don't have to worry about carrying a bunch of bottles with me. A little tip, unscrew the sprayer off the top of the bottle and empty it by spraying whatever is in the vertical tube, when temps freeze overnight your sprayer will still work in the morning. Now that being said, I also use horses a lot to hunt and there is not enough scent spray on this planet to get rid of the smell of a sweaty horse, do the best you can and always use the wind.

    Lets see.....I'm not sure if this point has been touched on yet but ........Wind in your face is the only scent control that is 100% effective 100% of the time and it doesn't cost you anything other than a little planning.

    Yea, what BB said. I am always checking the wind with a little "windicator" bottle. I never hunt big game with out it, even the slightest breez will carry the powder and give you the wind direction.
