Just wanted to share one of my current inventions in the bear baiting tricks and tactics.
What you will need:
1 bottle of Maple Syrup
1 bottle vanilla extract
1 can of tropical punch Kool-Aid
1 small box of butterscotch pudding mix
1 bag of butterscotch chips (for cookies)
1 bag of brown cane sugar
1 cup coco powder
8 cups of water
small cooking pot and stove
2 tbs lemon extract
Step 1: place 8 cups of water into your pot of mass destruction and bring to a light boil
Step 2: Add 1 bottle of Maple Syrup to water stirring continuously until you feel no "resistance" in the liquid.
Step 3: Add 1 Can of kool-aid, 1 bottle of vanilla extract, 2tbs lemon extract and 1/2 bag of brown cane sugar to liquid and stir vigorously until the mixture is consistant and smooth (should feel very little resistance when stirring).
Step 4: add 1 cup of coco powder and 2 cups of butterscotch chips and butterscotch pudding mix. Stir frequently until the chips have dissolved and the consistency of the liquid is smooth. (Watch your heat so that it does not foam up and boil over).
Step 5: remove liquid from head let sit for about 3-5 minutes (until slightly cool)
Step 6: using a milk jug or 2ltr bottle pour your liquid mix into said bottle for storage.
Uses of this liquid:
(some instances this liquid mix can be used for but not limited)
Soak some cotton shop rags (clean) in the liquid and tie some 550cord (or other string/roap) around the rag and hang from a tree to get the scent in the air
drill a small hole in a 20 oz soda bottle and feed a string through the lid to act as a wick then hang the bottle with the string (approx 2-3 ft in length) from a tree.
Using a spray bottle spray the mix around your bait site on foliage, the ground, trees, barrels (or create a game trail and spray the mix down the trail to help guide the animals into your station giving you a better edge on shot zones).
Feel free to add other ideas to this (I am sure you could freeze this mix and use early in the season with it melting slightly allowing slower scent release).
Also you may want to use a strainer to remove any "larger debris" that may clog up a spray bottle
