    go to walmart or any drug store go to the section where they keep the travel size stuff.buy the travel size baby powder its cheap 75-85cents it works great and you turn the lid to close it off its perfect for bow hunting.

    I always keep a piece of sewing thread with a small bird feather on it on my stabilizer.

    After you use up the baby powder put corn starch in the bottle. You won't smell as fresh as a babys butt but thats OK.;)
    have a good one

    Baby power smells too strong ,You might as well stand up and yell . try dumping out the smelly stuff ,wash out the bottle and refill with corn starch . NO SMELL.

    I'm like Scott. I keep a small turkey feather tied to the end of my bow. I also put one on a branch below my tree stands to keep track of the wind at ground level.
