3 Best Scent Eliminators for Hunting

Hey there hunters and welcome to my post where we will check out my three best scent eliminators for hunting to hide with this year.  As we are all aware, our hunting trips can be way more successful if our target game cannot detect our presence. A hunting ladder stand helps hide our location, but remember that animals such as deer have a strong sense of smell and if they can detect our scent, it’s game over.

For this very reason, we may need to buy scent eliminators.  And as usual, there are a number of options out there so to help you out, I have had a good look around and come up with three decent options below. 

Let’s check them out…

My three recommended scent eliminators for hunting

I will review these in more detail below, but if you just want to get moving without all the carry-on, my recommended products are listed here for your convenience:

What are scent eliminators for hunting?

A hunting scent eliminator is a product that helps to reduce the effect of human scent during hunting. They assist in hiding your scent as you sit in wait, and especially useful when used in conjunction with an attractant such as an electronic predator call etc.

These products work in a similar fashion to bathroom deodorants that use chemical molecules to absorb bacteria to prevent body sweat formation. That said, it is always preferable to use an environmentally friendly product for this purpose (such as a scent eliminator spray) as this reduces the chance of prey detecting the chemical odors as well.

What should you be looking for?

The following factors should be considered as you look for a good scent eliminator for your hunting needs.

  1. Type
  2. Environment-friendly
  3. Effect on human skin
  4. Additions

Type

Scent eliminators come in various types and function differently:

  1. Soap: Before going to your hunting spot, you would apply the soap scent eliminator as you take a bath. The product helps remove body odor as long as possible.
  2. Spray: A scent eliminator in the form of a spray can be used. These products work similarly to deodorants, which you must spray on your skin and even your clothes before going hunting. These products generally have accessible dry technology, which allows them to dry quickly on your skin and clothes.
  3. Stick: This type of scent eliminator is a standard stick that can smoothly glide through your skin to conceal all of your sweat odor from the animals out there.
  4. Sheets: These scent eliminators wrap around your body, keeping the animals in the woods from smelling you. You must keep the product with you at all times in order for it to effectively remove human odor and keep you safe from animal attacks.
  5. Ozone emitters: Ozone emitters are currently one of the most popular types of scent blockers. To keep the hunter hidden, they cover the air and remove the smell from your body and clothes.

Environment-friendly

It is essential that the scent eliminator does not affect the environment, or your skin negatively.  There are several products on the market that contain entirely organic ingredients. Additionally, animals can also detect foreign chemicals so always read the labels carefully when selecting environment-friendly products over other artificial substances.

Effect on human skin

As above, if you have sensitive skin, there is the chance of harm from scent eliminators as well.  You can always try eco-friendly options as above, but if not, check the ingredients of the scent eliminator to learn more about its chemical composition. 

To accomplish this, you must first understand what allergens affect your body and then only choose a good odor eliminator that is safe for you.

Additions

Other potential additions include:

  1. Easy-to-Dry: This feature becomes possible if the scent eliminator is equipped with easy-to-dry technology. It will be a hassle to hunt with moist skin or wet clothes, which is why this factor is important.
  2. No stain: Staining our clothes is undesirable because it damages the fiber. In buying a scent eliminator, do not forget to look for this feature.
  3. Mounting system: This feature applies to a fan-type scent eliminator. The mounting system helps you attach the product to a tree quickly and easily.

FAQ

Do scent eliminators work for hunting?

Short answer – yes. Much like a deodorant, a good scent blocker can remove all odors associated with the hunter. They either work by blocking the smell as the source, or masking it with scents more familiar with the animal.

My three recommendations broken down

So based on the information above and my own experience, I recommend the following options:

1. Nose Jammer Field Spray Natural Hunting Scent Eliminator 

This first product I have on my list is scientifically developed to jam the senses of animals in the woods with natural odors. The product also dries fast and will not stain any of your clothing. See its specifications below:

  • Brand: Nose Jammer
  • Type: Aerosol spray
  • Environment-friendly: Yes, the product uses organic compounds.
  • Weight: 0.7 pounds
  • Dimensions: 8.5 x 2.28 x 2.2 inches

Other inclusions:

  • Ease of use
  • Quick-dry product

Why have I chosen it?

By using this scent eliminator, you are no longer worried about the wind movement since it overwhelms the olfactory gland of your target prey. Animals will only smell a natural odor, giving you a good hunting advantage. The aerosol applies to anything from clothing, trees, boots, backpacks, gear and tree stands, etc.


2. Scent Thief Trophy Pack

My second option is a complete set of scent eliminators for hunting including a laundry detergent, hair and body wash and scent-eliminating solution. The science behind this product is it blocks the sense of smell of animals meaning they will only detect familiar scents of the wild. See its specifications below:

  • Brand: Scent Thief
  • Type: Laundry detergent, field spray, hair and body shampoo, scent-eliminating water
  • Environment-friendly: Yes, the product is free from harmful chemicals.
  • Package dimensions: ‎11.57 x 8.14 x 4.88 inches
  • Package weight: 5.5 pounds

Other inclusions:

  • 100% money back guarantee

Why have I chosen this?

The manufacturers incorporated their patented “No Smell” technology in each product which blocks the ability of the animals to sense your scent as you stay in your hunting location.  The product continues to function in adverse conditions such as rain and high winds although under these conditions, it is advised to use the scent eliminator several times throughout the day.


3. Ozonics HR-230 Scent Elimination Device

The final item I have for you is a one-button system that eliminates odor-causing bacteria in smoke, oils and human sweat – amongst other things. It is designed specifically for hunters, ensuring that nearby animals will not detect you. It is also completely silent and will not reveal your location. See its specifications below:

  • Brand: Ozonics
  • Type: Ozone emitter
  • Environment-friendly: Yes, the product is free from harmful chemicals.
  • Weight: 3.2 pounds
  • Dimensions: ‎10.16 x 7.52 x 4.65 inches

Other inclusions:

  • Battery charger
  • Tree-mounting system
  • Two modes of ozone output

Why have I chosen this?

This ozone-emitting machine deals with your smell effectively, no matter what direction the wind is blowing. It employs a patented in-the-field ozone generator that deals with human scent at the molecular level meaning deer and other prized targets will not detect your smell. This device works effectively for hours, and when in operation, no alarming sound is emitted that would scare away your prey.
