After camo Cover sent
In my 26 bowhunting years I tried all I could find as cover hunter
Some seams working fine other not but how to know if game escape because of my odor or anything else I remember a red deer so close from ( on the ground) that he touched my arrow with his nose I saw deep in his eyes
Of course was a young one but I still remember this very close Impressive encounter
For years after trying lot of sent cover I deduced that the cover feels cannot be same in every region
In Canada I used to enclose my hunting clothes in a plastic bag with a spruce branch after have washing them with backing soda
Here in South France first game is wild boar and this animal is known and recognized for its fantastic smell. So I put to soak all my hunting clothes including shoes hat gloves socks in a baking soda bath
I rinse with clean water and sprayed My sent cover Then I keep clothes in an hermetically close bag
What is my sent cover made with ?
I use three common fragrant plants in my area :
Lavender, thyme and pine that I boil in water ( 2 hours )and I filter multiple times
I have the best cover as possible natural not chemical Spray chemical cover a mask or scarf that you will wear on the face you are guaranteed to cough for hours
Obviously, if I go hunting in a region these plants do not exist in the wild I do not use it
When I ‘m hunting in an area where I know I will come back I collect specific plants to the region to prepare “ regional” scent look
So I bottled several French regionals odor And after backing soda shower before in the woods it works

Vinegar works better than baking soda, especially after diapers have leaked, or doing construction @ 90*. Believe me I’ve done both and the vinegar beat the baking soda hands down. Also like to put a bag of cedar chips in the dryer. Both the vinegar, and cedar are frugal (not cheap) and easy.
