I’m always asked while speaking at shows or working events exactly how a hunter can remain scent-free. I first chuckle a bit, and preface my explanation by saying “it takes a lot of work.” If the people seem up for the challenge, I’ll elaborate.
Sometimes they’ll reply “I’ll just keep playing the wind” or “I can’t afford that fancy stuff” and move on. But for those who stick around, those dedicated hard-core hunters who want to become better at their craft, here’s how I describe a perfect, scent-free day.
Human scent-control needs to be pursued on four levels, with the first being internal. We are what we eat, and need to keep that in mind well before the season starts. Ideally, the hard-core scent-free hunter will up their intake of chlorophyll-rich odor-eating green vegetables.
