    My first bear was heading strait for my buddies Honey burn. I decided not to burn that day, but could smell my buddies burn. He was far away from me and I could smell. it. I made a stove with sterno and a coffee can. and put honey and anise oil in a smaller veggie can.

    A bunch of good ideas above. I think that anything sweet smelling should do the trick.

    One of my Alaskan buddies swore by burning honey in a can over a sterno stove. I just don't want to fool with fire when other things are just as good.

    I agree with Del. Anise oil is very strong stuff, works great. I have also heard of burning honey.

    Go to the spice section in the grocery store and get a bottle of oil of anise. It is the flavoring in black licorice candy and bears love the stuff. When I lived in Ak the stores was always sold out in the spring and summer 'cause of bear hunters. You can put this stuff in a spray bottle and spray it around or use a scent wick. They also love the smell to cooking bacon. One of my AK buds got his brownie when it came to the smell of breakfast cooking.

    If you can use food scents , try the syrup like scents like buck-lickers. On the contrary, buck-lickers may be considered bait so it would be best to check with your local game warden or the state DNR.

    In Oregon, we cannot use bait or dogs to hunt bear. The rules specifically say scent only. I've heard corn works well as far as bait goes, but since we can't use bait, I was thinking about using the juice from canned corn. Any other suggestions on scents or other methods>
