    Buddy of mine called and told me he had to wear his hunting boots to change his car oil and when doing so accidentally spilt oil on them :stickfight: He wanted me to post and see if you guys think deer will be bothered by it or anything to get it off real good. Thanks

    Since he was crazy enough to do that, I'd go make a big mudhole in the yard and stomp around in it for awhile. Wash the boots off and repeat the mud then washing again, then a full out scent shield application after they dry.

    I'd pressure spray them off at a local Car Wash then proceed to walk thru a pile of fresh fallen persimmons,then spray some scent-killer on them! :cheers: :blah: :blah: :blah:

    If deer didn't like oil and gas they wouldn't cross the road from all the smell of the vehicles.

    florissant mo.
    I have had deer walk right by my four wheeler. I would think that it smelled like gas oil and rubber. sometimes i think we tend to give deer a little to much credit.

    I wouldn't want to lay an oil scented trail to my stand. Last thing I want is deer skirting my stand because of dirty boots. I'm not a scent free fanatic but I do take controlling ground scent serious. I play the wind religously because I know there is no such thing as scent free but if I walk to my stand with the smell of anything other than leaves or dirt on my boots deer will notice.

    Got any cow fields around? Plenty of "stuff" to walk through there to remove the oil smell.

    Lawdy, it's a wonder any deer are EVER kilt! They can smell you when you're getting up in the morning. They can see you 20' up. They can tell if you've used scented dryer thingies.
    It's a wonder the men who settled this state completely wiped them out without camo, or baths or even long range rifles, ain't it?:claphands:
     
  17. tell him to hunt next to a gas station and he will blend right in :D
