Anise has been a long time attractant for bear hunters all over North America. Well I have discovered it's just not for bears. Anise and vanilla extracts have a powerful scent and I found over the years that deer, moose, fox and all other kinds of animals will come in to the scent of these 2 aromas. I have been testing this year with each one separate and combining of the two. I have had surprising results by placing them in areas that don't have a lot of deer movement and after one week I have new deer movement.
I simply soak a cotton ball and pin it to a tree and set up the cam and watch'em roll in.
