-STORY CREEK PRODUCT REVIEWS-
It is not very often that a product is introduced that can truly change the way we hunt. I had the opportunity to use Ozonics for the first time in the fall of 2011 and believe me, I was as skeptical as anyone. Being a midwestern bowhunter, I have seen my share of gimmicks come and go over the years and I was not sold on the idea that Ozonics could actually eliminate my odor to whitetails that were in my downwind direction. So, with my Ozonics unit in hand, I hit the field for an early season Wisconsin whitetail hunt. The light September wind was not ideal for the stand location that I was headed to, but I figured "what the heck", lets give this Ozonics a fair test right out of the gate. I was set up on a small food plot that had a bedding area just to the southeast. A narrow travel corridor connected the two and that is where I anticipated the majority of the deer to appear. The northwest wind lightly brushed my face as I sat on stand. After an hour or so had passed, I began to wonder if Ozonics was in fact a hoax, another high dollar scent elimination scheme that I had fallen for. But then, about an hour before dark, there they came. Not one or two, but 7 Does and fawns. Now, any good bow-hunter knows that any deer can be fooled at any given time but a mature doe can throw a wrench into any hunt if she detects even the slightest distress scent. I sat and waited for the inevitable, I was sure that one of the 4 mature does would be alerted to my presence at any second and all that would be left was a distress snort and a 7 white flags exiting the far end of the food plot. But as time slowly passed, I began to realize that they had no idea that I was there. They fed comfortably and without a care for over 45 minutes while the wind direction could not have been hitting them any more square in the face.
I did not harvest a deer on that evening, but I learned that the Ozonics HR200 had permanently earned a place in my pack. Throughout the season I had encounter after encounter with mature deer that could not pick up on my human odor. The Ozonics unit itself emits a light ozone odor that the deer would occasionally pick up on, but it did not alarm them. So, my final conclusion on Ozonics is that it is a very beneficial tool to the hunter that needs to get close to wary whitetails.
