I know a lot of people who hunt and fish and I would love to make soap that erases or disguises human scent. Does anyone know a recipe for a soap that would do that?

I've heard of people making soap with deer urine. I am not joking!

For less disgustingness, I believe clove or anise soap?

I would go with a simple unscented castille soap and then use whatever "odor" they want to attract deer with a spray-on.

It's less about attracting deer with a scent and more about covering up the human smell so they don't get scared off when they smell people.

I agree. I'm from a hunting family and I've been hunting before so I know about how it works. I don't intend to make a "deer attracting" soap, but rather one that would cover the scent of a person. I know you can just use unscented soap, but I was just wondering if there were other natural scents that I could use VERY subtly to help mask the scent of the person.

I actually did some research and found that a lot of people who make hunting soap use woody scents like oakmoss, pine and cedarwood. I think I'm going to try that.

Also, I have read that Anise supposedly attracts fish, so I'm going to try a fisherman's soap too.
