Hey Mr. hunter, You stink!

I read the magazines. I watch the TV shows. I hear the chatter from buddies who know more about hunting then I’ll ever know.

People can talk about hunting, how fast their bows are, how good their camo is, how they love their new treestands — but one thing remains clear to me after years of hunting whitetails, you’ve gotta beat a deer’s

If you want to bag a mature buck like this one, you'll have to beat his nose first.

nose first.

People have 5 million olfactory receptors in our noses. Deer have 297 million. You get the idea about how important being scent-free can be.

For some reason, though, being scent free for some hunters gets pushed to the back burner when they prepare for the season. And I have no idea why. We all know that beating a deer’s nose is the first objective if you have any shot at being successful.

Just this past week I started on my scent-free wash — three loads in all of everything from coats, bibs, liners, hats, gloves, bags and shirts. If I wanted it to be scent-free, in the washer it went with Scent Killer Autumn detergent. What’s the Autumn secret? I have no idea, but it looked good on the shelf I suppose.

So, while you are busy gathering up your gear for the season, and checking last minute equipment, don’t forget to do some laundry. You may be glad you did.
