well Big E so far no luck on bagging that bear, season ends this wed-(19th), havnt even heard hide nor hair of one. but now that cold weather has set in and snow has blanketed the ground im wondering if they chose to bed early for the winter. I dont think that im gonna be able to get back out before season ends, so i just gonna have to wait till next sept for him. But i will try the vanilla thing again when season comes again and hopefuuly will be a succesfull one..Good luk to you on the rest of your hunting season.
Oh yes Billii, Vanilla is a great attracting scent.
I have used it for years on wild pigs and have had the occasional black bear come to it. Its not legal to hunt Bear here but they do come to vanilla.
There is also a product on the market called "'nilla killa". It says its for Deer, Bear, Wild Boar, and Coyotes. I have never had a deer or coyote come to it though.
I even saw on TLC Channel that Vanilla was the #1 scent that attracts men also. Not chanel #5 (spell?).
All of us, at one time or another have gone on a hunting trip and had what we call “Blue Bird” weather. Warm evenings and almost hot days. We hunt in our t-shirts and enjoy the sunshine. We are way up in the mountains and have a whole week to hunt. How could it get any better?
That is, until we score on that big buck or bull. We work to get it out of the field and skinned as quickly as possible to cool it down. But try as we might, we just can’t get...
