The same old hunter i know that uses one Q tip of doe estrus also uses one Q tip with a drop of turpintine (pine scent) for cover scent and swears by it. He also showed me to crumple up wild ginger or sasafras leaves and stuff them in your coat or rub on skin. this does work i've tried it and plan on trying the turpintine trick this year!

never used turpentine as not natural scent in my area.  i feel bucks in my area would go on full alert and retreat back the way they approached when they smelled it.  i have placed cedar pine needles in my containers that i place my hunting clothes in when i hunt in cedar pine area swamps though.  believe now that the more scentless i can be the better.  its not always the scent of a human its the concentration that they get that makes the difference.

Never heard of using turpintine...but have heard a bunch of old timers swear by using Old Spice??!!?? Only thing I can figure (never having tried it and never going to..who wants to smell like an old guy while hunting?) is the musk odor gets their interest up??!!?? @--0--0117
