Past clothing, there is the multitudes of washing and descenting products to catch the unaware.

    Clothing; Worked 50 years ago and works today, dull clothing. Dull, checked flannel shirts and jackets use to tromp the woods and timber. Some of us wore black and brown face paint for both face and hands. I was wearing a old black ball hat, wore out army jacket and faded blue jeans when I took my first deer. So close was he that there was hair all around my arrow.

    Washing products; For bathing, Ivory soap is hard to beat. For clothing you can't be Arm & Hammer baking soda, just wash and let air dry. I store mine in a thick plastic bag after a shot spray pump of some cover spray, acorn or earth scent.

    Yes, I have camo clothing, most bought by my wife for me. She is a treasure. My main object to cover, my hands and my face. Those el-cheap-o camo cotton gloves do the job. The only thing I do is cut off the index finger so I can feel the trigger of my index release. Face, found this place that had the pulling over camo screen netting on sale. Bought 3, still using the first. Want to use camo clothing, mix them, Mossy Oak with Real Tree. That near bright hardwood crap is good for something, I just don't know what for.

    Lures; 12 to 14" off the ground the scent is picked up by the near constant ground air. Where do deer have their nose? Mostly to the ground. The only time I see them with their nose up in the air to catch the scent of what might be danger. More than a few bucks have come by me looking more like a Beagle on a hot bunny trail....

    Stands; They don't have to be on top of the Empire State building. My tall tree stand seat is not 7 feet off the ground. I just have good cover and I use the thickest tree I can find near game trails or crossing points. A two wide Oak goes a long way of breaking up your outline.

    Bow; My bow is where I can grab it and not reach out to break my outline or make unnecessary movement. Mostly, it's right in my hand. Most of my bow hunting has come after I turned 50 years of age. It amazes me that today healthy "kids" are wimps. My primary hunting bow weighs more than hunting bows today and has a ata of near 38". I don't have trouble packing it near all day and not one problem in the tree stand or stalking. I do my home work to the tune of something of 38 deer in the last 14 years most all of them on our 31 acre farm/home site.
    K.I.S.S. applies to hunting as well.....

    And for hiding hands, I use brown Jerseys
    They are about 50cents/pair here,

    I've killed several deer and 1 turkey wearing dark blue jeans.....

    Yesterday here, I'm letting all the week-end warriors have the woods for the week-end, going out in the morning. My favorite spot is being logged right now, so that will messed up for the next couple of years, but I'll just go up the valley further, longer ride, but thats ok. About 70% of the "bowhunters" here will be finished by tonight, and hang their bows back up for another year. They are the same crowd that stop by Darimart on thier way out of town for that 12 pac that will be thrown out along side every road in the woods. And they wonder why gates get locked.

    Well, the fire are all but out now, under control. But all logging property is closed for hunting, FIRE DANGER signs on all gates. Not going to get in much elk hunting this year, deer, I can hunt in the late season.

    Finally found somewhere nearby to day hunt. About 20 miles south east is a large track of BLM timber, mostly cedar, some fir. So we ( Es and I ) finally get to go out and get a little hunt on. We get out there after passing several locked and posted Weyerhaeuser gates and find that the BLM track doesn't have any fire warning sings out.

    We were succussfull, but it's Elkslayer's story and he trird to post it this morning ..His laptop is dead, so he logged in on my computer, but forgot to click remember me, and by the time he had finished writting, re writting his tale, and attaching pics, he had timed out. When he clicked Post Quick Reply, he had to sign back in, lost it all. and has to re type the whole post.
    So look for a post later.
