Question about scent blockers, clothes?

So Im in the market for some new gear and would like to know if you guys know of a good spot to get a good deal on some hunting pants and what not?

Also, do you prefer one brand over another in regards to scent eliminators, spays and detergents? Im only gonna have a couple sets of clothes over a five day period, so Im gonna need something thats reliable. I know Im not gonna be totally scent free, but whatever I can do to help.

Thank for helping out a noob! Thumbs up

Keep your hunting clothes in a fresh,clean enviourment. A hunting jacket hung on the camp wall when the bacon is sizzleing and the cigar smoke rolling will hold the odor for days.
Just my two cents worth

Yeah thats a given, but I was curious to know what kind of scent eliminator people use. Guess no one has any info share? Confused

Question about scent blockers, clothes?

Even though I'm a firm believer that you can not conceal your scent completely, just cover it up some, I go through all the steps to hide as much of my stink as I possibly can. Not wanting to spend a ton of $$$ on scent eliminators, I wear tops and bottoms of X Scent undergarments from either Cheaper Than Dirt or Wal Mart. I of course go through the steps of washing and sraying and storing and using scent wafers and particularly using the wind in my favor to help mask the scent. No particular brand on sprays and stuff, I think they all work pretty much the same. I also like rubbing against the cedar trees and stepping in cow manure( when I'm hunting close to the pastures). I can say I have had deer come in and lay down directly downwind of me, so something must work. Hope this helps a little

Thanks for your input redride, that pretty much what I was thinking...but its always good to have other opinion's.

I saw some western sage waffers, I think I might have to pick up some of those.

Question about scent blockers, clothes?

i have sentlock top and pants. I think they dont help a lot because I hump alot of ground hunting to me they are like wearing long johns. TR Michele's web site has some interesting info on active carbon clothes and so on. I found it interesting and the contains or xsent type of clothes he talks about actualy working seem to be bettere a friend of mine has a set and it isn't nearly as hot or movment restrictive. I was thinking of getting some. I use scent killer and sprey down with it then wait about 15min and use H.S Scents cover spray pine and cedar, I alos use their waffers. I grab vegitation and rub it on my self as I walk red fur and such. I kick through every pile of elk and deer dropping I find to help cover the smell from my boots. Just dont where them in the house the wife will get mad.

clearwater - I've been pretty impressed with XScent tops and bottoms also, helluva lot more affordable and like I said before Ive had those deer come in and lay down downwind of me. They seem to work well as far as being somewhat insulating when cold and just the opposite when hot. I think well worth the $$. Thumbs up

Scent

Here is what I do. I take a large black contactor type trash bag and fill it up with dirt, pine needles and other plants from the area where I hunt. At the end of my hunting day I stuff my hunting clothes (usually camo) in the bag and change into camp clothes. I tie the bag up tight and keep it out of our tent so that it will not pick up camp odors. I also wear Walmart X Sent long underware. Good luck.

Thats a good idea! No sure I will be able to use that trick though since my hunt is 4th season, and with this storm coming in who knows whats its gonna look like then! Im doubting I will find anything dry.
