How to make your own scent killer

On the Beverly Hillbillies, Granny never would share her recipe for moonshine.

But Gary Pat Craig doesn’t mind sharing how he makes a homemade brew to cover his scent while deer hunting.

“It’s not original, but it works. It’s a killer,” Craig said. “And it’s much more economical than the store-bought stuff — especially when you hunt deer as often as I do.”

Craig starts with a gallon bottle and 16 ounces (2 cups) of distilled water. He then adds 2 cups of 3 percent peroxide that you can find at a pool supply store or some hardware outlets.

He then add ¼ cup of baking soda and an ounce of non-scented shampoo.

Shake it up good and put it in a spray bottle. Use liberally right before you go into the woods.
