Getting closer to nature isn't always easy—especially when you're fixing to shoot it. A neat way to get closer to that big buck of your dreams is to put on a charcoal suit (no, not the one with the chalk stripe and lapel, that's for another kind of hunting.)
Activated charcoal acts like a sponge to absorb odor. A layer of finely ground charcoal traps your odor and prevents it from becoming airborne, where a buck can detect it. When combined with other scent-removal techniques you can make yourself invisible (aromatically speaking) to the species of your choice.
