What’s In Your Vehicle?

By John Eberhart: Being detail oriented when scouting, setting up locations, and laying out seasonal and daily hunting plans is critical to success in HCHP (highly consequential hunting pressure) areas. It’s no difference when preparing to go into the field hunting.  For hunters like myself that have to travel somewhere to hunt, I’ve put together Read More

Pre-Season Speed-Touring

By John Eberhart: The topics of the previous two posts were pre-season scouting for new locations and then preparing them. This post is for hunters that scouted and prepared their early season locations during post season and now need to know if they’re worthy of hunting. Since 1998, I’ve been calculating bowhunting statistics on bowhunter Read More

Proper Preparation For New Pre-Season Stand Locations

  By John Eberhart: This post goes hand-in-hand with the previous “Scouting Smart” post; ideally they should be done during the same day. While differing amounts and types of hunting pressures influence when, where, and how mature deer (especially bucks) move, those differing pressures should also directly influence how and when hunters prepare new locations Read More

Caring for Carbon Alloy® Garments

By John Eberhart: The bond of human emitted molecules to activated coconut carbon, treated carbon and zeolites (3 substances making up ScentLok’s Carbon Alloy® liner) is a weak bond that permits regeneration or thermal de-adsorption using low temperatures.

Why Use Activated Carbon?

(Activated Carbon is used in our exclusive Carbon Alloy® technology for maximum odor adsorption) By John Eberhart: I was fortunate to already have some basic knowledge of what activated carbon was and how it functioned before purchasing a ScentLok suit, but most hunters that don’t own one, definitely are not. So please allow me to Read More

Putting It to the Test

By John Eberhart: Even during the stone-ages, wind direction influenced how animals that relied on their sense of smell for survival were hunted and during the first 34 of my 51 bow seasons, the same basic stone-age principles of “hunting the wind” were it! Sure, there were some sprays and precautions that would help, but Read More

The Reality of “Hunting Pressure”

By John Eberhart: If you hunt phenomenal hunting land with little competition, feel fortunate and be proud of your kill accomplishments, but don’t assume you’re somehow a better hunter than others hunting in more heavily hunted areas with differing types of pressure criteria. Unless defined clearly, which it never is in hunting film or media, Read More
