A-Way Hunting Products' Apple Scent Web contains 300' of apple-scented "string" you can spray out to 15' to avoid tainting the area with human odor. The scent activates upon contact with the air and gets stronger with time. Moisture reactivates it so it works for days. Contact: A-Way Hunting Products, 989/435-3879, www.awayhunting.com.
Buck Bomb's Acorn Rage Bomb is an aerosol fogger containing 5 oz. of acorn scent. The scent can be delivered in short "bursts," or you can empty the entire contents of the can by locking down the nozzle. Once airborne, the smell of acorns travels up to a quarter mile with as little as a 3 mph breeze. Contact: Buck Bomb, 1-866-850-6653, www.buckbomb.com.
Buck Stop's Sugar Beet Buck Beads are biodegradable granules infused with the irresistible smell of sugar beets.
