When I was a beginner, I thought all that stuff about scent control was nonsense. As a matter of fact,it wasn't until I was 30 years old and picked up a bow and became a believer in scent control. I was just so stubborn I wouldn't listen to anyone. Then, my friend introduced me to bowhunting and that is when I finally became a believer. It was amazing that i was hunting in the exact same area as I did the prior year and I went from seeing one deer the entire gun season, to seeing multiple deer and quality deer everytime out. Anyways, I was just curious if there is anyone out there that still thinks scent control isn't necessary?
