Most hunters I know have very definitive views on whether or not to attempt to be scent-free or to use cover scents to mask human odor. Considering the amount of products on the market to put odor in the air, it is understandable if you are feeling a bit overwhelmed when thinking about adding one more item to your arsenal of tools when hitting the woods. Hopefully this review can help out.
I want to introduce the new 30-06 Outdoors MOJO Scent Sticks. There are several convenient features about these scent sticks. Each stick is a non-toxic solid and dispenses easily with a twist of a button. The stick goes on clear and really does stay for days.
Between my husband’s boots and my own, I applied a single scent to each boot. Then I left the boots outside on the back porch for several days. The scent was still there at the end of this time. Add in the fact of the convenience that you can just throw the scent in your backpack and go—no more worry about liquids leaking out or bottles to break. A light touch is best when applying. It doesn’t take much pressure to apply the scent which means a little goes a long way.
Here is a breakdown of each of the five 30-06 Outdoors MOJO scent sticks I reviewed:
Dirty: Seriously, how can you go wrong with a dirt smell in the woods? Yes, it really does smell like dirt! I plan on using this scent every time I’m checking cameras as well as hunting.
Apple Orchard: You are in an orchard minus the bees. Even if you are concerned that there isn’t an apple orchard in the area, you will find it is a great attractive sweet smell. Applying this scent near where deer travel and your stand is located, it might be the perfect pause for a shot opportunity.
Acorn Turbo: As soon as you take off the lid, you’ll know why the name includes the word Turbo.It’s Acorn overload for your nose.You might have to beat back a few squirrels on your way to the stand.
Pine Grove: Smells just like a pine forest or fresh-cut pine. A great scent to use on your boots if you are hunting in pine thickets or if there are cedars and pine in your hunting area. Many bucks use cedar and pine to rub their antlers on and this scent can often be picked up in areas with heavy pine population.
Smokey: Some hunters still use the old Native American method of smoking their clothes and gear as a cover scent. It is also believed by many hunters that the smell of smoke is a curiosity scent without alarming wild life. This product smelled of smoldering brush fire.
The five 30-06 Outdoors MOJO Scent Sticks I reviewed have an MSRP of $5.99 each. There are two additional sticks available which I did not review because they are for use during the rut, the Hot Momma Stick and Buck 9.1.1. which have an MSRP of $7.99 each.
