I believe the most important part of using scent elim. spray is on your boots before walking in. If it is warm I carry in my heavy close, dress up and spray down before I climb up and thats it. Just keeping your close free of foriegn odors is key which you are doing. If you can stay fairly scent free then I believe that if the wind swirls a bit or they cross where you walked in it will help. Deer that get straight down wind are almost always going to bust you no matter what.
