Tip of the Day: Cover Your Scent with Tea Made from Leaves

An excellent cover scent to mask odors that emanate from your hunting clothes can be made by boiling a few handfuls of leaves, bark, and coniferous needles gathered from your hunting region in a gallon of water. Let the mixture boil until the water volume is reduced by half. Wet your hunting clothes with the resulting concentrated "tea," then let them dry before going hunting. Your clothes will now give off the scent of foliage that occurs naturally in your area.--Jerome B. Robinson
