Moment of Truth: Scent Control Tips for Your Stand

Moment of Truth: Scent Control Tips for Your Stand

It should go without saying that anytime we're in the field we want to conceal our presence as much as possible. But what some bowhunters don't give enough consideration is how to effectively conceal your presence after you've left, especially when it comes to your treestand and gear. After all, it only takes one whiff of you to alert a mature whitetail and turn it nocturnal, or worse, bump it from the property.

One method to remain invisible in the field, whether its preparing for the season or the hunt itself, is by controlling the scents around your treestand site. Proper scent control can often be the difference between a moment of truth, or completely missing out on the buck of a lifetime.

In this Moment of Truth, Bowhunter Editor-in-Chief Curt Wells provides tips for remaining invisible to deer, whether you're there or not.
