    So much for the smell driving away all deer.

    Yeah, I am still careful about this and always make sure myself or anybody hunting with me doesn't defecate or urinate in the general area I"m hunting. But then just when I think I'm the guru of all deer hunting, I'll see a buck sniffing at a pile somebody left. It makes no rhyme or reason. I've seen what I believe to be it working both ways. Might just be the timing. Maybe they don't give an Aeronatical Intercourse when in Rut.

    All jokes aside, if you dress like that and go on my lease, you will wish you hadn't been born. You will be eaten alive by things you never knew existed. You will wish you could cut off your legs. You will be inundated by chiggers and red bugs of all kinds to say nothing of Tics and right now mosquitoes. It is NOT a good experience. This brush country around here is full of all kinds of insects. We wear long socks and long pants no matter how hot it is. One thing, if you don't want to stand out to deer, don't wear blue jeans. A deer can see the color blue. at least wear something Olive drab or camo. And never white, such as an exposed tee shirt. When you see white bobbing up and down it can appear to be a deer's tail end. It's just a good idea not to tempt fate.

    And around here, if we're hunting on public land we are required to wear 400 SQ. Inches Blaze Orange. When I go with the Nilgai hunting crew down close to the King Ranch a Blaze orange vest is required not so much by the state, but by this group of hunters. Because they drive the Nilgai and we don't want to shoot the drivers or vise versa.

    Some people just don't tan worth a damn. They'll burn red as a lobster but then they turn white again. I suspect Cabrito Boy is like that.

    Tans are overrated and not particularly healthy, what with skin cancer and whatnot. Gingers freckle easily - and if I remember correctly, freckles can have a tendency to turn malignant.

    But I hear you about not going into "the bush" with bare legs - even I wear long pants under such conditions. I'll **** about it, but it beats the alternative!

    Yes, people from the northern British Isles have a lot of Ginger genes. They burn easy and don't really tan well. And yes Tanning can be dangerous if you're susceptible to skin cancer or Melanoma which fair skin people can be.

    I'm pretty fair skinned myself. I have a lot of German in me but my dad's side is mainly Scot Irish. I burn easily but don't tan worth a damn.

    Yeah, I stay out of the hot sun as much as I can. Most of my day time outdoor activities are in the fall and winter. I really don't give a damn about getting out in the summer sun.

    What? Not a fan of a rescue parachute inflated behind you while hunting?

    I watched a deer bed down 50 yards from me one day. For the next TWO HOURS he laid there. After an hour I was growing tired of his presence. Lit up a smoke. Then another. And another. He never smelled a thing. He finally got up and fed my way. He was a little fork horn I had zero intention of shooting at first sight. After the Mexican standoff, my mind changed. I hit him with an arrow, but unfortunately we never found him.

    I have run a chainsaw chunking up old birch logs for camp firewood..and had to set chainsaw down and pick up rifle to shoot a nice 6 point one time.
    Used to see lots of dear when in woods logging, they would stand around the edges of the cuts waiting for a chance to come in an nibble on the fallen top limbs.

    They ache all right. Just a little higher in the stomach area.

    That's Crap. I've had deer walk in while I/we were smoking. As a matter of fact, we would joke that cigarettes being smoked made deer come to us. Because it happened on multiple occasions.

    Not crap in my experience. Cigarette smoke is a sure way to an unfilled deer or elk tag where I hunt. Perhaps the deer around your hunting spot are accustomed to it.

    Seems like one of the best ways to attract antelope is to shoot one and start dressing it where it fell. I've done this several times and had other antelope come up to watch. Mike (Linefinder) even shot a doe while I was gutting out a buck I had just shot.

    The deer around my parts are way to educated I guess....I have come to the conclusion you can try all the no scent clothing and scents you want and it doesn't matter around here. They get down wind of you and it is game over. I have found while bow hunting that only way I can be successful is to hunt the correct stand vs. the wind.

    I shot this little feller a couple years ago while puffing a cigar. No bare legs, though.

    Yep, I have had that happen when dressing deer.

    My sentiments exactly for pretty much the entire planet. Similarly, the more I look at my trail cameras, the less I worry about deer knowing that I had been somewhere. I have pics of a whole herd of late season deer standing right where I had been walking around less than an hour prior in my stinky duty uniform. The evidence points to them knowing full well when a scent is residual versus when the actual critter (person, in this case) is in their immediate vicinity.

    When I'm smoking, I face upwind and look mostly in that direction, with just an occasional glance downwind. This guy was downwind, but the wind was swirling and I was up about 10 feet, and across a creek from him. He knew something was odd, and was moving slowly away, but didn't get too excited about it. Also, he was with a doe, so he was probably a little bit distracted.
