The bacon spray works well too from the company Ralph mentioned. The scent is amazingly strong. I'll have to try the shellfish spray this year along with the bacon. Thanks for the tip Ralph.

bearscents are awesome! Shellfish and Bacon has worked well for me in the past while in Saskatchewan. The outfitter swears by the bacon, however I shot a bear over the shellfish I put out after he got done rubbing the tree and rolling on the ground where I poured it! That was an interesting skinning job! Those guys are great to deal with too! I know they go to the Wisconsin deer and turkey show, they may do other shows as well?

I have had pretty good luck with the products from Bear Bomb. The sow estrus worked pretty good around active baits relaxing the sows as well as bringing in the trolling boars. I also used their beaver castor as well as the hickory which smells just like bacon cooking in the fall and spring.

I'll definately look at the bearscents stuff for my next hunt. Getting around their nose helps a lot.

burnt honey is a deadly attractant. another thing we do is to dilute honey, corn syrup or even mallases into a spray bottle and spray around the bait, tree stand, and the trail. works pretty good.

I bought the bacon scented attractant this year, but I haven't used it yet. Some of the best Maine guides use it so I figured I'd give it a try. I have a location selected so I'll put together a plan for this year's season. Wish me luck.

beaver is by far the best bait but cooking grease spread around the bait site works well to bring in new bears from far away as the bears spread the grease all through the bush
