Editor’s Note: This past week I went to a Deer Expo and met some interesting people, scouting out what outdoorsmen needed to know about hunting, new hunting products and hunting places to go. This week I’ll share with you some of the people I’ve met, and what I’ve learned that may help you and your hunting buddies have a more fun and successful deer-hunting season this fall.
One of the interesting people I met was the brand manager of Portland Outdoors, Wes Sherouse, who explains that, “Our company is made up of several awesome deer-hunting products, including Top Secret Deer Scents, Bio-Shield, Scent Defense and Fog Zero.”
Top Secret Deer Scents:
“Top Secret Deer Scents is an oxygen-free deer scent from collection to bottling,” Sherouse says. “The doe urine we collect comes straight out of the doe and goes into the bottle. This fact is important because when urine hits the air, it takes on oxygen and begins to break down into ammonia. So, the process our company uses insures that when you open a bottle of Top Secret you’re getting the most-fresh doe urine available to lure in bucks.” Learn more at https://www.topsecretdeerscent.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/TopSecretDeerScent/.
Scent Defense is a product that kills human odor, repels insects, fleas, ticks, mosquitos and bedbugs and is DEET free. Scent Defense products are available in a detergent, a field spray, shampoo and others. https://www.topsecretdeerscent.com/
According to Sherouse, “This USA-made insect, pest and mosquito repellent comprised of all-natural ingredients, including oils, is DEET free. Bio Shield contains neurorx, a registered formula created by pharmacists that works on the neuro transmitter Octopamine, found only in stinging and biting insects that controls the heart rate and metabolism of insects. The neurorx breaks down the central nervous systems of these insects and causes the insects to be repelled. Bio Shield is safe to use around children and pets. One reason we’re so high on Bio Shield is that it does repel ticks that spread Lyme Disease.” Go to https://www.bioshield-rx.com/ to learn more.
