Wats ur favorite attractant?


Boar

Recommended Posts

Kinda slow talk so i thought id try an get some chatter going, onwats ur favorite attractant. Im not talking bait but attractant for those that use. an if ya dont use a comercial atttractant wat do ya do to open a site an get the sent out.

I myself like to use the carmel extream to mix with grease or the green death, the green death is a butterscotch concentrate, an each are sure to pull bear of your bats hundreds of miles away. I also found a new bait site that has some interesting stuff, there is a poweder that ya mix with any bait to sweetin things up, is supose to be 100x sweeter than sugar, comes in different flavors an ya just sprinkle it on the bait as yu bait. Now I did out of ordinary of course an took a 35 gal. drum an layer doughnuts, sprinkle raspberry flavor then mor pasteries then srikle an son on till barrel was full, the covered in carmel grease, OMG, cant wait to see wat happens. LOL, funny, as I was doing this, my wife had came acroos the yard from about 75 yrds away in the garden to see wats smells so good, no lie! If this stuff attracts my sow then oh baby! Wat do u guys use an do,

Well ill start this off boar, I use grease from a restraunt that smells so good like fried onion rings. I also use the same carmel extreme you mentioned, along with some sprays I spray in trees like Vanilla, smoke and anise they all work great. Peanut butter works good globbed in the brush too...

I certainly like the green death in the frier grease that you told me about last year. We have a whole bunch of pie filling to try this year.

A few years ago we had no problem getting a bear into our campsite when a small tub of margarine was left on the table. The bear didn't touch anything else. It must have filled up on the margarine.

Has anyone ever tried the scent ball approach?Do they work? Also, has anybody made their own instead of dropping $40 plus on one of these things?

Oh yea, bought a bunch of them an yea they are awsome. Got tire like ya said of droping close to 70 with shipping. I havemade my own,got tired of that to0. I soak a bag of bread an pasteries in grease of carmel extream or green death, an hang it high, an it really pulls them im, cheaper an less work.

Yhe carmel extreame I think is four oz to five gal. but u can thin that out. for the money I like green death, an there is no ratio for mixing its from a trappers supply catalog. I alway bring in a bucket of grease about a third full to dip my scent sack in an i just give the grease a good squirt be i leave to go. the stuff is so concentrated a little gose a very long way. If ya want the web site for green death i can get it to you. later baor

Been thinking about some of these attractants and the green death has me curious. These all smell great but if sprayed on bait do they give a bad taste or not. I never spray the the scent i use on the bait for that reason.

Boar, do you think green death tastes ok if put on bait? I might pick some up the next time im at the inlaws in owatonna.

Ive never tasted it, but wen things come in such high concentration it usually dosent tates good, an attractant is just that, ment to attract, then ur baits take over. I tell ya cant go wrong with this stuff to open a site. I use it continueously throught out baiting, but just to soak my grase bag then hang it back up high. Now if your interested in some stuf to sweeting ur bait, I can help with that too, Its a fine powder that you sprinkle on any bait an is suppose to be 100 times sweeter than sugar. A little gose along way. BUT..... This is the second year using it, last year I tried it a little an really didnt notice rusults cause last year I had more bear come in late season after the natruals were gone, dont think it was the powder but the fact i was open for bussiness. Which of course I preach hard. Now wat I did with this powder, was take two barrels with clamp lids, I put in a layer of pasteries, cover with powder, bag of gummie bear, then pastieries, powder, gummies. Until barrel was full, the I poured 5 gal. of fryer grease over it all. Two barrels, one with sour apple sweetner an one with rasspberry sweetner, this stuf is feremnting into some pretty outrageous stuff, I open the lid an wanna dig in. So this year I'll have better info from this stuff. If you interested I can PM the web site to ya. But still ya cant go wrong with green death, the have another I want to try its called hardcore which is an intensive cherry attractant. Both are ment for coon an bear an if ya havent had coo at your sites before you will with this stuff, so build a tight crib or use a barrel on Privy land. Later boar

Grab a pint of green death and some strwaberry extract in owatonna yesterday. Now just trying to find a good squirt gun and the right ratio to mix it.

Boar, wondering if i should mix the gd with light veggie oil for spraying or does it have enough in it for sticking to trees leaves if its mix with water?

Wat I doo is get a water canon at cabels for 9 bucks an take fryer grease an squirt about a shot glass an a half int 3 gal of grease or so mix it, the bring the bucket into site an launch grease into trees an foilieage. everytime I bait. for suirt gun, Id just take some outa the bucket, makeing sure its strained not to clog gun with particles, strain thru a dish towle should work. Water canon is awsome tho, really get up there.

You can pick up a 32 oz squirt bottle at the dollar store, hardware store for a couple bucks. I use a big super soaker like boar does cause a shoots a nice big stream about 30 feet or so. I will use the squirt bottle to freshen things up before I get in the stand tho.

Boar, I stole a pair of the wifes pantyhose to strain the fryer grease. Worked really slick.

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.
    • smurfy
      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!
    • Wanderer
      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.
    • leech~~
      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣    
    • Tom Sawyer
      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆
    • Tom Sawyer
      Still waiting for global warming to ditch my Lazer Mag, always in the truck for thick, virgin ice.    Don't know if it's possible, or advisable, but thought I would throw a 8" K drill bit on it to lighten it up. Should be an adapter for such a conversion. Careful what you wish for, probably rip my arm off with a shredding combo like that 😂

      Leech I still have my old jiffy gas auger mainly for sentimental reasons. I haven’t used it for 3 years now. The only time I start it up is in the garage just to hear that pop pop pop sound lol   I will never go back and have no regrets going electric. Huge weight saver and with an extension will go through any thickness of ice. Starts first pull every time lol    we were fishing 2 weeks ago Swiss cheesing a slough here in SD on 4” of ice when someone else tried to fire up their gas auger and my buddies and I looked at each other almost in disbelief that someone was still using a gas auger.   pros and cons for sure but I think electric has more pros than cons with advancements lately     
    • smurfy
      any ice thickness reports..........especially on smaller not heavily fished lakes???????   chances are i wont be up till after christmas anyway, but............
    • leech~~
      Let me know when you go again.  I'll being my crossbow and take out the Deer when you kick them up!  😁
