I'm a teacher that resides in Michigan and mainly hunts in Michigan and have used ScentLok activated carbon lined clothing for many years after reading about scent control from John Eberhart through his first book Bowhunting Pressured Whitetails. I have taken several nice bucks that were or at some point had passed downwind of me and have had mature deer downwind of me within all distances on so many occasions I can't count them. There is no question that the reason for having so many deer downwind without spooking is because of using properly cared for ScentLok clothing. I know that because it didn't happen prior to using it.

A memorable out of state DIY hunt in Nebraska put my ScentLok gear to the ultimate test. On the second morning this buck bedded at 60yds with 2 other smaller bucks. Winds were swirling but mainly in my favor. They stayed bedded for 4hrs and at 11:30 the other bucks got up and came through, and continued past me directly downwind without spooking or even raising their noses to test the air.

I grunted and snort wheezed as I was directly between the big buck and 2 smaller ones and that was just enough to get him up and move to within 30yds. I made a well-placed shot and he only went 30yds before stopping. Man he was pissed and he didn't know what hit him, and then he tipped over. Had the 2 bucks that passed down wind winded me and spooked or the bedded bucks caught my swirling scent I would surely not have capitalized on the opportunity to stir the pot and draw this buck in.

Thank you John for all your help in showing the proper care and thank you to ScentLok for making high quality outdoor gear that actually performs as it states when properly cared for.

January 12: My Scentlok Success: Jason Eubank

In Northern Virginia I hunt in a heavily pressured area for both rifle and bow season, so I knew it was going to be challenging. The spot I have permission to hunt is 10 acres of open horse pasture with a small pond in the center that's surrounded on all sides by oak and cedar timber. The deer frequent this pond in the middle of the night so morning hunts are iffy due to the lack of entry approach routes.

On Nov 7th I left work early and was in my tree by 12:30pm at the corner of the field where does had been popping in and out of the woods giving me about a 10 yard window of opportunity. At 1:15pm I saw one of the biggest bucks I'd ever seen in the woods stand up, stretch his back and take almost the same trail out which was at that moment, directly downwind of me as the wind in the field corner swirls in all directions regardless of what the prevailing wind is and he never smelled me.

He turned broadside after I performed a soft grunt and I had about 24inches of space for the shot opportunity. My arrow clipped a small sapling and he didn't spook very far, but ended up stopping behind some cover making another shot not possible.

I couldn't stop thinking about this buck and on Nov 9th I packed up food, water, and other goodies for an Eberhart all-day hunt.

I was hunting in a well-used transition travel corridor between a bedding and feeding area when this 9 point came in from the opposite direction of where I thought the deer would come from. Of course it was during the rut when as you know, nothing is carved into stone concerning routine deer movements.

At one point he slowly passed by directly downwind at no more than 20 yards and after using ScentLok and clean rubber boots for so many seasons since reading and implementing your scent control regimen amongst other things, I wasn't concerned about getting winded. He passed through my downwind side and I ended up shooting him with my recurve at 11 yards.

There's no doubt I never would have gotten this opportunity without properly caring for and wearing ScentLok as he would have winded me when he passed 20 yards downwind through an area I couldn't shoot. Why do I know that? Because it used to happen with does, bucks and even some fawns in the past.

2008 was the second year I started taking scent control seriously after reading two of your books. I remember specifically that the wind was blowing in the "wrong direction" because I chose a stand based on deer movement instead of wind direction that morning. A friend of mine wanted to video for me and I made him wear my extra ScentLok suit.

This 2 0.5 year old buck came cruising and seeking at around 60 to 70 yards downwind of us and I used a can-call to bring him within 8 yards and then made a perfect double lung shot. He was technically downwind 75% of the time he was in our sight and never once acted spooky or suspicious and after the fact, the camera guy couldn't believe it as he was a bow hunter also. At the time he was my best Michigan buck. Was it a coincidence that I shot my best Michigan buck the year after making the switch to the Eberhart way, ScentLok and a complete sent control regimen? I think not.

*Sidenote' The very first year I started properly caring for and wearing ScentLok correctly and using the Eberhart method of bowhunting (2007), I took a 3 1/2 year-old eight point on Wisconsin Public land and a 2 1/2 year-old seven pointer on Michigan Public land! Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of me with those bucks other than after they were mounted.

July 21: Scent-Lok Technologies: Successful Partnerships Never Smelled Better

ScentLok Technologies teams up with Traditions Media to celebrate an iconic hunting brand's storied past, compelling present and exciting future

Flash back to the year 1992. Science was driving new technologies at a rapid rate.

Take, for example, the must-have videogame console that ruled the decade prior; the Atari 2600 was discontinued after being outdone by the graphics created by competing brands. IBM introduced Simon, the touchscreen mobile phone and personal assistant, considered today to be the first ever smartphone. UNIX released ViolaWWW, the first popular web browser.

Now ponder the technologically advanced devices that have replaced those newfangled products of their age. What was once high-tech is considered archaic by today's standards.

But not all of it.

It wasn't just new-and-improved electronics that were being fashioned in 1992; a Michigan hunter named Greg Sesselmann conceived a solution for keeping a deer hunter's aroma from wafting through the woods that same year. No, not by covering it with a few spritzes of foul-smelling spray-which was the only option up to that point-but by creating an all-new hunting suit that was able to capture and contain scent before it could escape using activated carbon.

A small company was born in Muskegon, Michigan that year, and 25 years later, ScentLok Technologies remains the clear leader in the product category they invented. Today's diverse line of ScentLok apparel using patent-pending Carbon Alloy(Registered) technology is the most effective odor-adsorbing clothing available.

Since day one, the folks at ScentLok have never taken shortcuts. Whether developing new products, rebranding and entering new markets, engaging with their customers, or building one of the deepest and most respected pro-staffs in the industry, ScentLok has insisting on doing things right, which is why they've partnered with the established outdoors PR pros at Traditions Media to represent their hardworking brand and products.

"Everyone at ScentLok is ecstatic about teaming up with Traditions Media," states Nick Andrews, VP of Marketing for ScentLok Technologies.

December 28: Scent-Lok Technologies : My Scentlok Success: Marc Ellerbee

I had been wearing the same hunting clothing for six years and it was time for not only a change, but for an upgrade in garment technology. After considering several different brands I just wasn't sure of which to purchase. This year I came across a podcast interview with John Eberhart and once I heard his story, decided to read his book "Bowhunting Pressured Whitetails."

After deciding to try his scent control tactics and because I live and hunt in the warm weather climate of Georgia I purchased a ScentLok Savanna Quickstrike Coverall and took care of it as John suggested. It's rare for hunters in Central Georgia to pass on 2 0.5 year old bucks and there was a good buck that everyone was calling Curly in the area I was hunting.

I patterned Curly by setting up a trail camera on a primary scrape area very close to where he must have bedded because he visited it right after dark on multiple occasions. On November 9th there was a cold front coming through and rain was predicted until just before dark. I set up 25 feet in a pine located on the edge of the bedding area and wore my ScentLok Coveralls beneath my rain suit that per John's scent control advice had to be washed in scent free detergent before each hunt, and sat there for several hours in the rain.

At 4:30 I saw a descent buck chase a doe through the field downwind of me and into the timber.

The buck in the photo was taken in 2013. I was hunting along a well-used deer transition route and in this particular location a deer could pass by from either direction, however since learning how to properly care for and use ScentLok clothing through John Eberhart's material, it really made no difference to me which way they came from as I had deer downwind of me on many previous occasions without incident.

When I saw him moving towards me was the first time of the hunt that I noticed which way the wind was blowing and guess what, it was blowing right at him, he was directly downwind! Never smelled me, never lifted his snout and I shot him at 12 yards downwind.

It's actually pretty funny that after so many years I don't have to pay attention to wind direction. That used to be a big part of the getting an opportunity puzzle. Not anymore! Ho-hum.

Turns out ScentLok works for me as I had one of my target bucks from last year dead downwind of me at less than 30 yards for five minutes before circling upwind and walking into my shooting lane at 25 yards which is where I shot him.

I had a ScentLok QuickStrike coverall on as a base layer, a Rivers West waterproof/windproof jacket as a windbreaker jacket, another ScentLok suit as my exterior, ScentLok touch tip gloves and a Scentlok Savanna headcover with drop down facemask wore beneath the hood of the QuickStrike coverall. I also had a clean insulated hat on top.

I used my 44mag since it's a bow set up with a 30 yard max shot distance. There's nothing like an all-day sit from 1 1/2 hours before sunrise to 5pm when I shot him.

December 15: Scent-Lok Technologies: My Scentlok Success: David Ferianc

I've been bowhunting for 26 years, and in the last 8 seasons since discovering John Eberhart's books and seriously implementing the Eberhart Way of bowhunting and his ScentLok scent control regimen have taken 7 P&Y class bucks all of which were 3 0.5 years old or older. In my previous 19 seasons I took several year and half and a few 2 0.5 year old bucks and all their antlers are in a box in the corner of the garage. The before the Eberhart Way and after results are nothing short of shocking as all 7 of the after the EW bucks are mounted and on my walls. Implementing what's in his books, articles and videos has changed me from an occasional subordinate buck killer to a consistent mature buck killer and it happened immediately.

I attended his workshop in September and it was by far the most enlightening and informative piece of the consistency puzzle. Since implementing the scent control chapters in his books I haven't even considered wind direction and your workshop added more info on the topic.

A recent kill was yet another feather in the cap on how a proper scent control regimen negates wind direction. I watched as this mature buck casually came in from 150 yards directly downwind and never even paused while closing that distance to 22 yards.

Since 2011 when I first read John Eberhart's books and watched his DVD's I have been preparing my 154 acres in NE Texas for bow hunting. We are surrounded by gun hunters that drive 4 wheelers in 30 min before sunlight and leave stand shortly after sun up. To say they alter deer traffic with the way they hunt would be an understatement and it affects deer on my property as well as the deer on my property also travel through theirs.

One thing that has changed how many deer I see within close distance is my scent control regimen which I began implementing after reading John's material. I stopped using cover sprays and invested in both a complete warm and a cold weather ScentLok suit and some airtight Totes to store them in when not in use. I now have deer directly downwind of me frequently and they don't know I'm there.

Military deployments and overseas work has kept me away from bowhunting for a while, but everything came together again this 2017 bow-season as I took the attached early afternoon Texas 10 point.
