    Well, to be fair to you, he does hunt a lot of private land. I don't know the ratios, but I suspect it's a bit more private than public. He spends a lot of time talking about how to get permission and maintain relationships, and he's been doing it a long time. Also, I suspect his dedication (including entry and exit strategies, getting in early and staying late), the way he works to pick the right time to hunt the right way, and what I take as his reluctance (at a minimum) to hunt somewhere he can walk to without boating, wading or crawling are more important than the ScentLok. I mentioned he hunts high, 25-30 feet. He actually mentions that 35 is fairly routine. You can get away with a lot up there, especially since he's setting up for close shots.

    That's my take too, he's covered up with the stuff whenever he's hunting or prepping, except during Winter scouting. I can't see me wearing it in Aug. or Sept. when I'm hanging stands or checking cameras. 90+ deg. and 75 deg. dewpoint, I can barely handle it in shorts and tee shirt. I guess that's why he has all those p & y bucks from public land and I only have 2.

    Way out in backwoods Nebraska, a man's wife went into labor in the middle of the night. Their son went to fetch the doctor, who arrived just in time. To keep the nervous father-to-be busy, the doctor handed him a lantern and said, "Here, you hold this high so I can see what I'm doing." Amidst a lot of cursing and shrieking, the doctor delivered a health baby boy. The father was relieved, but the woman still seemed upset and agitated, so the doctor apologized for all the cursing and shrieking. "No, No!" yelled the woman. "I'm having another one!" Sure enough, within minutes the doc had delivered another baby. "Now don't be in a great hurry to be putting down that lantern, young man! It seems there's yet another!" cried the doctor, as a third baby began to appear. The new father grabbed his chest in bewilderment and yelled, "Do ya reckon they're attracted to the light?!?"

    LOL... I'm flipping back and forth between his two books mentioned above, and also doing some reading on the blog he's been writing for ScentLok lately, which he claims he's not being paid to do. (I'm not trying to insinuate anything there, just sayin'.) Contrary to what I said previously, I did find some discussion of ScentLok care in Precision Bowhunting hidden away in the chapter on his game plan for June, July and August. The book is laid out as a year-long look at his preparations and his hunting strategies and tactics. This period is grouped together, whereas the rest of the book is month-to-month. Apparently, summer is the time to take care of your ScentLok, if you didn't do it right after the season ended. This is because Eberhart is getting ready to "speed tour" some of his areas in late August, to make minor final preparations like trimming summer growth and checking for fruit and mast, and he does this in full scent-control mode. He goes out in the middle of the day rather than in the cooler mornings, so as to avoid deer moving early and late. I'd burn up just standing in the shade if I were wearing ScentLok in August, forget about doing any work-- even in the mornings--but God bless him. No earth-shattering clothing care notes in this section either, but I think it's worth mentioning that in this book I picked up that he feels if you're not in "full ScentLok" you're doing it wrong. This means the gloves and head cover, in addition to the outer layers. I'm not sure ScentLok makes underwear, but if they do, he's wearing it. I haven't seen him mention it, but I believe SL also offers a mouth cover. He uses a ScentLok backpack for hunting, and his son mentions going back to his car to change into his "hunting ScentLok" from his "scouting ScentLok" when he got the feeling he should be hunting a particular property right then, when he had gone out merely to check a place he hadn't been in a while. (It was September and the original plan was to prep for early-to-mid November.)

    A mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a Harley motorcycle when he spotted a well-known heart surgeon in his shop. The surgeon was there waiting for the service manager to come take a look at his bike. The mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey Doc can I ask you a question?" The surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take valves out, fix'em, put 'em back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks, when you and I are doing basically the same work? The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over, whispering to the mechanic....."Try doing it with the engine running!"

    OK, just read an article in Aug. D&DH by Eberhart. He's not doing anything different with the carbon clothes from what I read. He states that an independent study was done during the ScentLok lawsuit in 2012 and that provided evidence that carbon clothes work and they CAN be regenerated in your home dryer. He says that he takes care of his clothes, keeps them locked away in a scent proof container, wearing them only when he hunts. Also he does all the usual stuff with the rest of your gear, spraying down, washing everything you can in scent free wash etc. But he said places on your body with hair can be a breeding ground for your scent. So you should shave your beard and your armpits. He didn't mention your head or your..........um......you know where. Not sure I'm going to take the plunge and get waxed and look like Mr. Clean to go bowhunting. You can't argue with his success though.

    We could call it the "S" car, for "silly" or "shenanigans". Then if the thread really gets to rocking one day, we can say, "Wow! Look at that S car go!"
