All I can add, wash your boots, I wore only rubber boots at least knee high... wash the hell out of em, dump baking soda in each one. Scent lock stuff is a joke really, at least IMHO. But wash the clothes as you do. Then stick it in scent free bags... we used trash bags all the time and had no issues, but put a number of cedar limbs in them. I use coon urine all the time too.. I prefer it to fox... just a mist on each sole every so often on the walk in. I then would take skunk scent, and open the bottle and just dip a clean toothpick in it, just about a quarter inch or so, and then put the tooth pick out. You just barely want that odor.
Bottom line... we never could fool hogs.... SOBs just have a nose... deer OTOH... all you do plus some... and the silver scent killer stuff. BTW I'm a FIRM believer that if you could... you'd be WAY better off to be a vegetarian for 2 months..., AND we always took chlorophyll tabs. And we brushed our teeth good with baking soda before going out.
Other than that there was this stuff called Pit Stop years ago... it was teh BEST underarm scent killer I've ever used...
but back to bags and clothes... cedar limbs in. Don't forget your towels... waste of time to do all that showering and then dry off with a house towel thats had soap and static sheets in.. and DON"T dry the clothes in the dryer... too many other smells in there.
Good luck. Saw a 110 or 115 inch deer( I hate score and record books but it gives something to compare) 2.5 year old Sat Am. Thats it. Only went finally last night again..... and saw nothing. Acorns abound. And we have a horrible domestic issue between the FIL and MIL right now... he needs to stay away is all I can say. My life is upside down right now.
