Complete Odor Management In and Out of the Woods

For over a quarter century, ScentLok has been unlocking the secrets of successful scent control.

When last we met, the truck was parked and outerwear being donned a stone’s throw away to avoid picking up whiffs of exhaust and city life. Prior to that, care was taken to banish scent with ScentLok 3X Shampoo and Conditioner, 3X Liquid Body Soap, and 4X Laundry

Detergent – the pregame.  

Now it’s Friday night lights on Saturday morning – gametime.

You’re an odorless warrior. It’s predawn and there’s a generous half-mile slog to the glory stand. Not time to let your guard down. You did everything by the ScentLok book to this point. Carbon Alloy treatment is working its magic, but perspiration will soon be underway, brow to boots.

Whitetail geek and ScentLok Marketing Manager Steve Allie takes layering very seriously, especially when it comes to making your way to the stand. “A lot of hunters put on their complete outwear set before taking a step into the woods,” says Allie. “That’s a mistake. You’re going to sweat and produce unwanted odors and also make yourself colder when you get situated in the stand. Whenever possible, walk in wearing your base layer top and pack in your outerwear and layers to minimize perspiration.”

To that, Allie suggests wearing gloves and try not to touch anything walking in. “You have the potential to leave scent on everything you touch,” he implores. “I even put a burst of ScentLok 4X Field Spray on my boots before making the trek.”

While the spray is out, he also mists the inside of his hat to kill odor, as human hair traps scent like none other. In fact, most human odors come from the face and head. “Beards are stinky,” he quips, recommending that you put on a facemask instantly, long before settling in the stand or saddle.

Freakish about scent, Allie goes further. “I use a field foam to treat my face and neck.” His choice is Illusion Phaze, which helps eliminate new sweat and bacteria acquired during travel. 

What about gear like the bow? Allie treats them as well. “I spray down my bow, arrows, phone, and glasses with OZ NFuse Ozone Sprayer. Basically, anything you bring into the field from normal life needs to be treated. I use the OZ NFuse on items that you don’t want residue such as your bow, phone and other things you handle.”

A Few Parting Tips

Again, taking whitetail hunting as serious as life and death, Allie is highly strategic about entering and exiting the woods. “Have multiple entry and exist points from your stand based on the wind,” he says. “You always want to be walking into the wind, or at least quartering against it. And it might sound elementary but steer clear of your shooting area, too. Again, it’s about not getting detected.”

Allie goes on to say exiting is equally as important. “You for sure don’t want wind blowing into known bedding areas. That can really disrupt their behavior and ruin the next day’s hunt.”
