Wool hunting smell

Good Afternoon,

I was wondering if anybody has a tip for getting the wool smell out of my hunting wools. I know some you will say " buy different hunting clothes", but I like the hunting in wool. I know there are other things I need to do to sneek in on a buck worth shooting but, that wool smell has to tip them off. Any suggestions?

Wool hunting smell

Make sure you use a good cover scent. Doe estrus, etc. Just make sure it is fresh. Buy it just before the season and look at the dates on the package.

Thanks Woof....I thought about doing it before maybe I'll give it a try or I'll just give up the wool and buy those expensive pants and shirts. Thanks Again!

wearing wool

Hey RK, try using one of the "scent blocker" sprays. You can buy one in a pump spray bottle and it is easy to use. Just spray your clothes before going out in the woods. I like wearing wool too, don't give it up.

Wool hunting smell

I haven't found a reliable way to get rid of that wool smell. Once it is wet, if I can smell it, then I know every animal on the mountain can smell it. My only hope is they think it is just wet sheep.

People have been wearing wool forever to hunt in. I guess it works without de-stinking it.
