Great discussion here .
In my above post I ASSUMED the subject at hand to be the products that are on the market that claim to eliminate scent, which I can’t believe work . I too believe the deer has the ability to separate scents as does the dog . A New England biologist did extensive studies on coyotes and claims their sense of smell is 100,000 times greater than humans . I doubt that the deer is much less , considering its ability to find an acorn under about 4-6 inches of rotting , moldy leaves on top of wet soil filled with innumerable scents of rotting debris , which is in the woodlot downwind of a large hog farm .
I totally agree with Smithhammer on the end of the day statement about WOODSMANSHIP.
