Here at The Mod Cabin we have a diverse customer base with varied ideals and interests. One of the things that most of us have in common, however, is that we all respect nature and have an appreciation for it's beauty and what it provides. Everything we handcraft comes from it and our scent blends are inspired by it. Although we are a cruelty free company in terms of our production methods and ingredients, and do not test our products on animals, we also see the importance of and appreciate the support of those who hunt ethically, and utilize their catch to feed their families. For those of us who are not vegetarians or vegans, hunting is a way to stay connected to nature, the cycle of life, and the animals that are nourishing us.
We hope you find this article by Garrett Boop, 3-gun champion and Mod Cabin Man, helpful in your hunt.
Although I was able to fill that particular tag with my rifle, I often hunt with a bow and arrow. I enjoy the challenge of avoiding detection and finding myself within thirty yards of a whitetail deer and their uncanny ability to detect danger with their noses. Avoiding detection by the nose of a whitetail deer involves making your gear and your body as scent-free as possible. Washing my clothes and other hunting gear in non-scented soap then hanging it outside to dry is a critical part of the process. The other, and probably most, important aspect of being scent-free is controlling the odor on my body.
Over the years, I have used almost all of the scent-free products on the market. Most of the products have worked to reduce scent and odor. One problem I have found with almost every scent-free product on the market is the fact that while they are reducing scent they are completely drying out my hair and skin. This is more pronounced when using the products for an extended period of time. Our hunting season in Pennsylvania lasts from the end of September to mid-January and I am often using scent-free products for weeks at a time.
PROTECTION WHILE REDUCING SCENT
While I am willing to sacrifice comfort and looks to be as scent-free as possible, I found Mod Cabin products allow me to take care of my skin and beard while avoiding the additional odors of regular soaps and shampoo. I regularly recommend Mod Cabin Essential products to my friends and family for their own scent control routine because they work.
