I think here in Jersey scent is not as big a factor as in the big woods in other states. Jersey deer are used to smelling people probably on a daily basis. I do use a carbon scent blocker on my outer clothes. I also use deer in rut scents to try and attract them. Tinks69 and others.
My old man!!!!!! His first deer was a 275lb. 10 point from maine. He was 16 and his older brothers didn't want to bring him but were forced by my grandfather! Anyway he had no clue where to hunt and his brothers didn't help him so he found an old mining shed to sit next to where he could see pretty good into the open woods. Not being into the whole hunting thing he was smoking like crazy and had just taken a dump when out of nowhere walks up this monster 10 point. He shot this deer at about 35 yards with a cancer stick in his mouth!!!!!!! Go figure!!!
one of the guys i hunt with says just bout everytime time he shoots a deer he has a cigerret in his mouth and he hunts from the ground with no blind or no cover scent. he thinks it attracts but i dont think so.
Thats hot !!![up] I dont mind the 35 but i hate waiting for the pics..but i set most of my cams on state land..this year i had 1 stolen and 1 eaten by a bear..so i dont mind loosing a 10$ cannon as much as i would a digital
