Just when you think you’ve seen it all…

I’ve been hunting whitetails for over 45 years now and I thought I had seen it all. That was until a couple of years ago. There are those out there that seem to push the boundary between creative genius and peer insanity. And while I have to give them an A for effort and an A for ingenuity. I have to give them an F for utter foolishness.
I heard the two hunters coming long before I saw them. In fact, I saw several deer running from the hunters before I even heard the hunters. Although both of these fellows were wearing camouflage, they were hunting with the wind at their backs.
When they approached, I suggested that they might do better if they hunted into the wind instead of with the wind.
"We don’t have to worry about the wind direction," the taller one said, "we are wearing scent controlling underwear and we sprayed ourselves down with scent shield."
"Very well." was all I could reply.
I guess they didn’t know that most human scent comes from our breath and the sebaceous glands behind our ears.
They went on their way and I looked for another place to hunt.
Good Luck and Good Hunting,
