Deer hunters go to great lengths to cover their scent so that they can not be smelled by their prey. They may use scent eradicating sprays or cover up scents or even store their clothes in special bins that keep the human scent at a minimum. It is common knowledge to stay downwind from the animal that is being stalked so that scent does not alert the game to potential threats. Even special soaps are used that will keep the human odor to a minimum. However, very little discussion has gone into researching the odor of the human breath. And with some of the deer hunters that I know and the halitosis that they are suffering from this should be of much more of a concern. Think about it for a moment…if you can smell your husband’s bad breath from across the room, don’t you think that deer, with their heightened sense of smell can smell him from much farther away? One way or another the hunter in search of the deer or the “dear” will have difficulty being successful. So if you want to be more successful with your dear hunting, brush and floss to help to eliminate human oral odor (HOO). And be sure to visit Gerlach Family Dentistry, a dentist in Louisville Ky., to ensure that your HOO doesn’t get in the way.
