Does Scent Lok really work or is it a bunch of BS?
I don't see how the charcoal can be recharged in my dryer, it just can't get it hot enough. Am I just overpaying for a camo garmet the I can get for half the price and keep in a rubbermaid container with a scent wafer?
I think it works, but I think that the reactivation of the charcoal may be on the shady side. Perhaps the charcoal they use is a different blend but I thought that charcoal had to be reactivated at much higher temps than a dryer can produce. I think that blind selection according to natural terrain and wind direction are much more effective than Scent-Lok. My dad swears by it. I've been just as close to Whitetails without wearing it and have not been scented. I keep my garmets stored with a small amount of dried twigs and dirt.
I don't know about it being TOTAL BS but almost.It's not cost effective and as the ad states and most people miss "It works on 99% of REPLICATED human odor" That means it's tested in a university research lab for "man made" body odor.What about smoke and gas fumes? Cigarette smoke?
You already answered your own question.....Buy a regular set of camo, wash it in a very mild soap..air dry it by hanging it out to dry and then store it in a snap lid container with/or without a scent wafer. Don't put your camo on until you are out in the field to minimize any corrupt non natural odors. I pack mine in a snap lid container and instead of a scent wafer ,I put a few cotton balls litely moistened with cover scent or buck lure in a quart size zip lock bag with a few small holes stuck in it and put it facing away (slits/holes) from my suit in the container so the camo doesn't wick or absorb the scent directly into the camo cloth.This works great for me for 20+ years of archery hunting.My average shot distance has been 15 yards or less....

The only way to hide your scent completely is to stay down wind. Old school, but it is the most effective.
I never needed it to get the deer I hunted*... I don't see the justification for needing it if I don't need it*...
i dont think its worth the money if u sweat very munch just climb higher
don't bother with scent lok. people say it really works. trust me, i know from experience it doesn't work enough to pay the extra money.
live in western PA, and damn proud of it <((((><
