CarboMask-Ultimate Hunter’s Shampoo

CarboMask header

Scent control, or lack of, can be a main concern for many hunters & huntresses. Months of preparation involving hanging stands, clearing shooting lanes or just raking a path to your stand can all be for nothing if the deer pick up on a smell that is not normally found in their woods and your busted sitting in the stand. So with that in mind, I am always on the lookout for products that will give me an edge in the scent control department.

CarboMask graciously sent me a bottle of their Ultimate Hunter’s Shampoo; a scent free, odor absorbing product. I have been impressed by their face paint and was looking forward to trying out the shampoo. Ultimate Hunter’s Shampoo contains activated charcoal, an item widely used in household products designed to eliminate odors. The first time I used the Ultimate Hunter’s Shampoo was after a full day at the office. Earlier that morning, I shampooed using my regular scented shampoo followed by scented conditioner. After drying my hair, I then used a scented hairspray. Sometimes it takes a bit more shampoo to work those products out of my hair. However, the Ultimate Hunter’s Shampoo lathered quickly and only a small amount was needed for my head of shoulder length hair. Some scent free shampoos have tangled my hair and left the strands feeling hard or damaged. I was pleasantly surprised after shampooing with the Ultimate Hunter’s shampoo to be able to quickly run a brush through my hair without producing tangles or knots. My hair dried well and felt smooth. And most importantly-no smell! The hairspray and scents from my other shampoo were totally gone, wiped out by the activated charcoal.

Remembering 9/11

I remember the whole day. I arrived in my office to learn that a plane had hit a building in New York. Standing at the coffee machine my co-workers and I thought why is a plane flying that low? Then the second plane hit. We turned on the news in the office and I’m fairly certain it did not get turned off until we left. I couldn’t reach my husband by phone who happened to be working near the Pentagon that day. The phones were jammed because everyone else was trying to call their loved ones. Rumors that the Baltimore beltway was going to be closed down forced my boss to call it a day. I picked up my daughter from daycare and sat in traffic. I remember trying to remain calm as I got my son off the bus. I didn’t want the kids to panic however that attempt was too late as he blurted out:”Mommy all the other mommies came to school and you didn’t. I was scared.” Later I found out that many parents went screaming (yes, that’s right) through the elementary school, running to their children. I understood their concern, but screaming through a school yelling, “My babies!” never did sit right with me.

The days and weeks after the attack were exhausting. Visiting my church and finding other people with the same blank expressions on their face; the news showing people wandering around New York looking for family members. I remember feeling sad, lonely and tired. And I was one of the lucky people that did not lose a loved one to the attack.

Lastly, about two weeks after the attack I sat in my living room, turned on my TV and purposefully set out to find a movie, a TV show, something that had nothing at all to do with real life. I wound up watching X-Men on HBO. That fit the bill. It’s odd how your mind can find things to help you cope. I wonder if X-Men is on tonight.

Essentials for my backpack

Below are some things that are always in my pack. I just will not go into the woods without them – no matter the season.

Pack of tissues-especially during the spring turkey season!
ChapStick
Flashlight
Some wire ties for attaching a tag
Snips to take care of any branches I might have missed during the set up
Folding Knife
Pen for filing out tag
License and tags
Permission slips
Saline solution-nothing worse than a dry contact lens in the stand!
Reusable rubber coated Gear Ties
Pair of black Red Head glove liners-these work great to use in the dead of winter under heavy gloves or on the spring as a light weight option
Cell phone

Additional items will get added at certain times of the year for different seasons or my weapon of choice but there are some things this girl cannot do without!
