    Does a WSM count? That was my brush gun until this last season.

    Well, I guess I'm another that's done it all wrong. The only camo ever on me was my camo jacket under my orange vest. Didn't know you could gut a deer in a tree. Electric Bike?????
    I learned probably 40 years ago you really basically need just 3 things to be successful at deer hunting. A warm coat. A decent gun. And most of all Patience. Woops, 4, a good knife.
    All the rest is macho window dressing, excuses. You don't even have to cover yourself with some kind of stinking fox or whatever pee. Just be there when the deer are, have fun.

    I don't have neighbors. I live on my farm.

    As fr as deer hunting. The first of the season August 15th. I hunt out of towers and well camoflauged blinds and ladder stands. I'm usually wearing a tee shirt/shorts/ and tennis shoes. I carry my rifle/binoculars/cold water and maybe a thermocell.. That's it till the leaves drop and I can take to the woods. All I hunt is private land.

    I don't like to gut them in the woods because of the coyotes, plus, that leaves me on the ground for a half an hour leaving my scent all over the place too. I'd rather drag them off and gut them away from where I hunt. I agree those guys are advertising most of the time, but scent control is no joke

    We use one too and think it is great for de-scenting clothes between hunts. Use a closet in the basement or get a wardrobe and by your own unit on amazon. The zippers on those units get horrible reviews.

    Using a fishing analogy here... some lures are for catching fish, others are for catching fisherman.

    Same principle applies to some hunting gear.
