Ask Dave: Does scent eliminating clothing really work?
By David E. Petzal and Phil Bourjaily
Does scent eliminating clothing really work and if so what clothing would you recommend for the extreme heat of Florida’s archery season? --Marc Nelson, Jacksonville, Fl.
I've never used it, so I can't answer with any real authority. However, I can't imagine anything that would keep me from stinking, and since the clothing would have to seal up tight to prevent the fumes from escaping, it would be hot as hell.
I'm highly unconvinced about the need for scentproofing, head to toe camo, and all that stuff. The two best deer hunters I've ever known stank of cigarettes and wore bluejeans and red-and-black wool coats.--DP
