Scent Control/Wood Smoke
I was wondering if anyone has any insight on the effect that wood smoke on your hunting clothes has on game? Does it alarm them? Do they not really show much reaction?
I've heard differing opinions on this. Some say the scent of wood smoke on clothing does not have any effect on game--meaning they will not become alarmed by it as they would to natural body odor or other scents. Some even say it helps. Others say any "camp" odor is cause for alarm to elk and deer, unless there is smoke in the area from a distant wildfire. Does anyone have any opinion on this? I ask only since I will be camping solo on a few hunts in Sept. and if conditions get nasty and cold, I may light a small fire.
Thanks in advance!
