Rick’s Pick- Ozonics

By: Rick Philippi

Ozonics is an ‘in the field’ ozone generator that kills human scent on contact. Let me explain how the process works. Ozonics transforms oxygen molecules into ozone molecules and with a very silent fan, blows these ozone molecules downward and out where it eliminates scent. The Ozone air blankets your scent path, bonds with your scent molecules making them unrecognizable to the animals you hunt.

Ozone is a colorless gas and prominent oxidizing agent that is commonly used to commercially kill bacteria and sanitize. Ozone machines are used in hospitals, restaurants, fire disasters, hotels, office buildings and many other places to sterilize and remove the smell of smoke and mold and to purify the air.

The little machine that eliminates odors from Ozonics.

In a hunting scenario Ozonics is light, easy to set up and easy to use. It will definitely  change the way you hunt.  This device may be used in a treestand or ground blind. I have used my Ozonics unit exclusively this year from tree stands and what has worked best for me is to mount the Ozonics generator approximately one foot above my head and angle the machine slightly downward and facing downwind. You will get approximately 4 to 5 hours of run-time from its 12-volt rechargeable battery; the charger is included in the package.

I used this procedure I have used the Ozonics HR-200 while hunting in Illinois the past two months with positive results. In my eight days of hunting I was not winded one time and had numerous deer approach my tree from down wind and as close as only 5 yards from the base of my tree.

Attached to the tree above your head the Ozonics unit silently bathes you in odor killing ozone molecules.

An important feature and benefit is that the fan that blows out the ozone is very quiet and does not spook deer! On numerous occasions I had deer right by my tree and you could have heard a pin drop because it was so quiet and not once did a critter spook.

Ozonics has a Scent-Free Guarantee. If you don’t see a dramatic reduction in the number of deer down wind thatusually bust you, they will send your money back. The HR-200 sells for $399.00. And all the applicable mounting accessories come with the machine whether you are hunting from a tree or ground blind. Ozonics web site is www.ozonicshunting.com
