Thats a good looking buck, congrats. That chicken fried backstrap sounds good. I hope to mak atrip to hunt some whitetails in the next few years. I'm just trying to figure out the cost.

Being a bowhunting I've always been fanatical about scent control. Whether it's sprays, carbon clothing etc. I've tried it. The best thing that I have found for eliminating human scent is Betadine.

It can typically be found near the pharmacy in any of the major "one stop shop" stores, and a bottle will last multiple hunting seasons.
