As summer comes to an end (I hate that phrase) a lot of people’s thoughts start to turn towards hunting, particularly deer hunting.

That means you have to take precautions so that you do not smell like you whenever you enter the woods!
There is nothing that says “danger” to most wild animals than the scent of a human – and for good reason – generally, when hunting, the goal is to kill an animal!
