Cover Scents and lures
Like all mammals, humans have a certain smell about them that most other animals can detect and recognize. Most game animals associate this smell with danger, and will stay away from it. This can make it more difficult for hunters to get close enough for a good shot. Cover scents are natural or man-made substances that mask or cover up the human smell. You should begin your scent control efforts by bathing well with unscented soap and shampoo. Use scent-free deodorant and avoid any lotions or perfumes. Wash your hunting clothes with laundry detergent that has no scent and no fabric brighteners. Store your clean clothes in plastic bags so they will not absorb unnatural smells from your house (like bacon, solvents, wood smoke, etc.). When you go into the field, you may want to apply some type of cover scent to your boots and/or clothes. There are hundreds available. Be sure to read and follow label directions. 
Lures or attractants are natural or man-made substances that are designed to lure or attract game animals. Most of them smell like food items or like the musk produced by animals during the breeding season. In either case, it is important to use an attractant that is found naturally in the area you are hunting. For instance, the scent of apples may cause alarm to a desert bighorn sheep that has never smelled an apple before. 

Tips for use of scents:
Apply cover scents directly to your boots, clothes, or skin (by label directions). DO NOT apply lures or attractants to your clothes or equipment. Instead, apply them to the ground, branches, leaves or vegetation within shooting range of the place where you will be located. Animals have keen noses, and may be able to locate you by smell if you apply the lure to your clothes.
Use the scent of food items that are found naturally in your hunting area.
Birds have a very poor sense of smell, so cover scents and lures are not usually an issue when bird hunting.
Check local regulations to be sure that the attractants you are using are legal. Most states allow the use of scent products to attract game, but some products may be considered to be bait, which is illegal in some areas.

Decoys
Some hunters use decoys as an another technique to help their hunt. Decoys are life-like models of animals that are used to attract real animals into areas where hunters are waiting, usually in blinds. Waterfowl hunters have been using decoys for hundreds of years, but many other types of hunters are using them now as well. 
Simple decoys can be made by painting blocks of wood or plastic bottles. Or you can buy extremely life-like plastic or foam decoys of most animals at any store that sells hunting supplies. You can even buy motorized decoys that move by themselves (these are illegal in some areas). A few things to remember about using decoys safely:
Always check your local hunting regulations to see if decoys are allowed.
Always conceal your decoys while transporting them from one place to another. If you wear full camouflage and carry a life-size deer decoy through the woods, another hunter may only see the decoy and shoot at you.
If you are hunting on the ground with a decoy (as in turkey hunting), set-up with your back against a tree or rock that is wider than your shoulders. This will help prevent you from being shot if another hunter sneaks up from behind and shoots at your decoy.
If you are hunting on the ground with a decoy (as in turkey hunting), be sure you have a clear line of vision to your decoy and 100 yards beyond it. This will allow you to see another hunter stalking your decoy. If you see another hunter, (especially if he/she is close to your "line of vision"?) call out to them in a loud, clear voice. 

If you are calling over decoys and then decide to move to a new location, check carefully to be sure that no one is stalking your decoys before you move.
