When I first met my husband a million years ago one thing I wasn’t used to was his family’s lifestyle. They were outdoors-men. I had grown up mostly in the city and suburbs and I just thought that meat came from the store and why in the world would you want to go out and kill your own, let alone eat things that were WILD!!!
Fast forward about 25 years and I’m fully immersed in the lifestyle. In fact, even though we are cattle ranchers, there is very little beef in my freezer, it is mostly wild game.
My husband and teenage girls are the providers in our household when it comes to wild game. Personally I am not a hunter. I tried it, it just wasn’t for me, but mostly because I can’t sit still for long periods of time. BUT, I am a hunting coordinator! What is that? I’m in charge of getting the clothes ready, shopping for things that they need, getting everyone to bed, waking everyone up early to hunt, getting licenses, and of course preparing and cooking the end result!
The hubs and our youngest were out in the stand last night for the first day of youth rifle season here in Oklahoma. You can tell by Nan’s face that she’s just as excited to be spending time with her Daddy as the opportunity to shoot a big buck. That is one of the best things about being in a family in hunters. The experiences help bond the relationships in a way that I can only pretend to understand.
One of my jobs as the “hunting coordinator”, is to make sure that the family can #hideyourstink . What does that mean? Part of hunting is that you need to make sure that the wild game cannot smell you. You have to be a “scent ninja”. I wash their clothes in a no smell detergent, dry them with a no scent dryer sheet, and then take their clothes outside. One of the things that I really don’t like is the no scent sprays that they cover themselves with on the way out to the stand. I tend to get a little nervous when spraying synthetic things on their skin and hair. Enter the Hunter’s Kloak Electronic Mist System!
The day before bow season started for my husband, I hoofed it over to our local Wal-Mart and picked up this great system!
From the Wal-Mart website, here are the specifications:
The Hunter’s Kloak mist system is a game changer when it comes to the reduction of human odor. With Hunter’s Kloak you no longer need to spray yourself with scents. The electronic mister is rechargeable and reusable – simply replace the scent cartridge. The rugged exterior is water resistant and built for the hunt.
- Mist travels naturally on the breeze.
- Can be used with concealment and attractant mists.
- Time control mist flow: Delay options of 3, 6, 9 and 30 seconds.
- Lanyard included for easy transportation or to hang from a blind or tree.
- Rechargeable and reusable.
- Water resistant.
My husband used the Earth scent for his first trip out. He used the lanyard to wear around his neck on the way out to the stand. He said that it was completely silent and was pleasantly surprised at how easily he was able to get it all set up and ready to go.
He hung the Hunter’s Kloak system on his stand and got to the business of hunting. I texted him a few times about it and he said that he didn’t even notice it, besides the light mist coming out of the system. The wind started to blow slightly and he watched as the mist went downwind.
A little while later, I received this picture. He was covered in does and they didn’t even notice him at all. For him, it is a total winner and he has already asked me to get more cartridges for his hunting season here, as well as to take with him to his Elk hunt in Montana next month.
The overall consensus is that the lead hunter, Hubs, gives his seal of approval and the “hunting coordinator” also approves greatly because of the fact that the system is a great alternative to sprays .
Get busy and #hideyourstink!
