i couldn't agree more with those who say smell is over rated.
I am the one who posted about how I have watched them cross my path without being alarmed, however I have had a buck that would come in down-wind when I was in a ground blind watching a two track and got "busted" by him three days in a row just before it got light. It was dark, I was in full camo, was not moving...he still would snort the alarm call when he came and then run back the way he had come. My point was, you do not need cover scent on the bottom of your shoes, but the wind sure seems to announce your presents.
Sometimes you get what you pay for, sometimes you only pay more for what you get.
Three shots are not a "group"...they are a "few".
If the Bible is the literal, infallible, unerring word of God...where are all those witches I am supposed to kill? (Exodus 22:18)
