Baking Soda to Cover Your Scent

26 Nov

Baking soda, the same stuff that deodorizes the fridge and is the key to scent-control system before a hunt.

Take a soda shower.
The stuff can rub your skin raw if you use it straight, so mix a few tablespoons with some liquid no-scent soap.  Sometimes showering with straight unscented soap, can still leave an odor.

Make a soda-and-clothes lasagna style.
Use baking soda like any other powdered detergent to wash your clothes. Dry them, lay a few items in a plastic tote, sprinkle a layer of soda on that, put in another layer of clothing, sprinkle more soda, and so on until the tote is full. Then place an open box of baking soda in with the clothes and seal the tote up.

Sprinkle your boots.
Obviously, your feet are one of the smelliest body parts because they’re constantly sweating inside your boots,   If boots are wet with perspiration after a hunt, put them on a boot dryer and then sprinkle in some baking soda.  You’ll have very few animals cut your track after applying this tip.

    Checked out your lodge, awesome! I went to Ontario this summer, fished McKay Lake. How near are you to that? I caught small fish, and not very many. I’m interested in some 40″ pike and 25″ walleye like you’re advertising 😉

    When is the best fishing? I probably care more about catching big fish than I do about hunting, but if the dates overlap then I like the idea of doing black bear/fishing combo. I’d love some more info.

      Our trophy size fish will be active during August & Sept since they are looking to bulk up before cold weather sets in. The sizes that you’re looking for are successfully caught during those months. The good news is the last week of August and first two weeks of Sept is also when we run our bear hunts. Contact us any time when you’re looking to book either a fishing trip or combo bear hunt/fishing trip. You won’t be sorry in the least.
