    Anyone else use natural, rather than store bought, cover scents? I tend to be old school when it comes to deer hunting and have been hunting over 30 years. I usually pack my hunting clothes in plastic unscented trash bags. Mixed among my clothing I put fresh clippings from Cedar Trees. By the time season rolls around the scent is very much impregnated into the cloth. It is strong, yet pleasant, smelling and can be refreshed easily by putting your clothing back in the bag after each hunt. You can also simply rub up against live Cedar Trees while hunting to further refresh the scent if needed. Even better that Cedar is wild Mint. It too not only has a strong scent but I'm convinced the smell actually attracts deer. Using this system I've had deer get close enough to touch, using nothing else, and by just sitting still. Give it a try. It really works and doesn't cost but for the bag.
