Of the many advantages of hunting from an elevated box blind, scent control is one of the least discussed – but possibly most important. Being able to keep much of your scent contained while hunting is a HUGE perk when it comes to chasing mature bucks, but it’s important to note a key word in this sentence. Much.
Just like with all scent control tactic and products, a box blind will not completely eliminate your scent. With that being the case, it’s important to keep scent control in mind even while hunting from the comfort and containment of a Redneck Blind. Here are 3 scent control considerations that you’ll want to keep in mind this next hunting season.
Being fully enclosed, box blinds can typically contain a large amount of your human scent – but only when the windows are closed. That said, consider keeping the windows on your blind closed while hunting, and only open the necessary sides just before a shot. Practice getting the windows open slowly and quietly to ensure that in the moment of truth you can get them open and into position in time.
While a box blind can contain most of your scent, there’s still always a chance that some human odor will drift downwind. To mitigate this risk, practice your normal scent control regiment just as if you were hunting from a tree stand. Wash your clothes in scent free detergent, keep your clothes in a scent-tight container, and spray down with a scent eliminating spray before heading in to hunt.
In addition to a basic scent elimination practices, you might also want to consider additional measures such as an Ozonics machine or cover scents – which can all be used in tandem with a box blind. Redneck Blinds actually manufactures a special mount that works perfect for attaching an Ozonics machine to the outside of your blind. If you’re using a cover scent like Nose Jammer, spray this on the downwind side of the blind, along the outer wall.
