I just spray me some brute on every morning and head to the woods.
Deer are curious animals and will investigate unknown things in their habitat

I know people that has hunted longer than 30 years. That does not make them a good hunter like age has nothing to do with wisdom. Having said that, I have hunted longer than 30 years and have killed big animals throughout the country. Cover scents do work and proven by many. Maybe itís you?

That is a valid opinion.

Maybe, but I have tried them and gave them an honest try too, and can tell absolutely no difference in seeing or killing deer. Scientific experiments with dogs, which cannot even smell as good as deer, have proven also that they do not work. People using cover scents were busted the same as the ones not using them, time and time again. No questions or guesses. Just facts. If a deer is downwind of you, it will smell you, regardless of your cover scent. A dog sure can. I'll go with the scientific experiments and my own experience, and we will agree to disagree. They are not a thing that you need to kill deer. Nor will they help you do so, except for maybe the positive confidence factor.

Who needs cover scents anyway when you can put on a hecs suit and walk up and grab a deer.

Exactly. I put mine on and walk up to them all the time. I smack the far out of the littluns, and cut the bigguns throats with my pocket knife.

I also throw down by beer cans there so they smell it , that way when I hunt and drink beer the smell won't spook them.
It's so easy even a redneck could do it.

I used skunk sent once. Had two different deer stop in their tracks and walk the other way. Things not to do before hunting , fuel up your truck or stop at Waffle House . Your camo will smell like waffles and hash browns.

Which will not make a durn bit of difference. Deer aren't a bit scared of waffles and hash browns. They actually would probably come up and eat them if you piled them on the ground. Waffles and hash browns aren't deer predators. Deer are scared of human scent, not human breakfast. If they can smell waffles on your camo, they can smell you too, and you need to pay attention to the wind.

They’re all a joke and waste of money. Cover scents
Cover suits all of it. End of story. Y’all have a good season!

I prefer not to pay for a cover scent when I can produce my own for less. Maybe I should have this in the homebrew section, but my current K cup cost from amazon is approx. 30 cents per cup. I try to drink at least two before I go in the woods. By about 0900 I am ready to produce and distribute it evenly around my stand. Results have been excellent.

I thought the scent line was less than 10 feet. If you are above 10 feet in a tree , they can't smell you anyway. Is this true
