About the only thing I use is the Sent-a-way detergent for my clothes and I may use some B.A Tree "oak-acorn" sent on my hands, hat , boot bottoms, and face. Thats all I use. For the 10 point I shot the other day I just used the detergent w/o cover sent and I just made sure that the wind was hitting me in the face! My unlce has always told me to keep my face pointed in the wind if I wanted to see any deer. With all the HUGE! bucks he has haggin on his wall I felt that I should listen to him. As many of yall know now, it worked in my favour. Look at the post entitled "Don't tell your buddies where to hunt". As I watched him, he was 1/4 into the wind as well as walking straight into the wind following a doe that had been there earlier that morning. Hope this helps somewhat.
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
