I helped my buddy on the September archery elk hunt in 6a several years ago and we were into elk 13 days out of the 14 day season.

A few times they would be running right down the road in front of the truck. We were into elk 5 out of the 5 days we hunted. It was her first time hunting so it was hard for us to get a decent shot, she was used to bench shooting and had a hard time adjusting to the scope.

I'm too tight to be buying a bunch of scent loc, which I don't believe in. So this is a good and cheap alternative. I like it so much I even toss one in my backpack to help cover the...
