The main reason to use a cover scent while hunting is to mask the human smell from the animal you are hunting. Animals in the great outdoors rely on their sense of smell to keep the protected. This especially goes for whitetail deer. Their sense of smell is much stronger than humans and this brings up the importance of using cover scents. The most common cover scent product is usually a spray like scent that you simply spray your hunting clothes before hitting the tree stand. These cover scents will usually have a moss or dirt smell to them and makes you smell like the surrounding you are in. These cover scents help mask the human smell that collects on our hunting clothes and helps bring that buck of a lifetime in range.
