I hunt out of a red cedar tower stand. We have cedar trees around our hunting area to. Their use to that smell so I freshen up stand with cedar scent. Does a great job.
^ X2 here. Clothes should be fresh daily in non-scent and bath with Ivory soap.Am I having problems getting close enough to a deer with my bow because all I do is wash my clothes with un-scented detergent and myself with nothing but Ivory soap? This buck fed all around me and then bedded for over an hour 15 yards from the base of the tree I climbed that morning. I let him walk.

If the deer don't like your cover scent -- that may mess up area.....
Sounds like you have a system that does eactly what you're looking to get done! Great job!Most recently I use Dead Down Wind scent killing spray. Also use all the other steps in cleaning body and clothes plus storage. I do not wear hunting clothes until I get to hunt sight then change before and after done.
Yesterday I tested this method by hunting up wind from scrape and bait pile. One buck and 4 doe came in and stayed. 2 were there about 50 minutes without noticing me. Yes there were mature does. Deer urine used on ground for cover spray but I was 24' up.
Yeah! That is sorta counter productive because all the game goes the other direction fast. You should squirt odor killer in your pants.I just hate when I do all the hard work of descenting.......then I let off a giant, methane bomb!!! .......... Anyone relate...?
You know going hunting in a way is similar to coping with Covid 19. When I go hunting I try to be aware of everything I touch on that day prior so as not to get exposed to unwanted scents. Then if I happen to I try to get rid of it (spray over it) before I head out to hunt. But just in case I carry a small spray bottle of scent killer in my backpack.During hunting season I use scent killing soap almost every shower because you never know when a hunt will go begging.
