    Im a first time hunter this year and I was wondering the best scent lok or scent Blocker for the money. Charcol or carbon, you tell me.

    well we useactivated charcol(i think)

    one thing i am thinking of doing is getting the scent blocker underwear and just descent my other clothes and when i get out to the hunting grounds just put it all on but i also wanna try that dead down wind stuff... like a enzyme that kills bacteria that makes human scent....

    but the kinda clothes we got had a little ad on it when we got it and it had a little scratch and sniff thing that REALLY smelled like acorn but when u put that little patch of the scent blocker stuff u COULD NOT SMELL IT

    but for a beginner hunter I WOULD ADVISE U TO ALWAYS KNOW THE DIRECTION OF THE WIND... u dont need scent blocking stuff if u CAN STAY DOWN WIND OF THE DEER


    but i am 90% positive we use the clothes with the charcol liner in them....
    but i will find out when i go back down to my dads.(cause thats where they are) sorry i aint 100% sure but i will be soon

    hope this helps...

    Jeff


    P.S.
    if u do get these clothes KEEP THE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO WASH THEM...

    oh and i do know that to activate the charcol u need to put it in the dryer for 20min
    and that makes it work

    jeff gave you some good advice, know the wind direction and keep this to heart.... "If the wind's in yer face... hunt another place".

    i dont use scent blocking products such as the carbon clothes or the chewing gum breath odor eliminator. (the very idea of the latter i find funny) I do however take a bath, use unscented deodorant, and wear clean clothes. I harvest plenty of deer.

    best of luck to you and hope to see a pic this fall of you and a ten pointer. :)
