It comes as no surprise to anyone, I love to bear hunt.  Therefore when I had the opportunity to review Big Bear Scents products I couldn’t wait to try them out.  Our hunting lease has some bear on it, so I thought I would try it out there.

I received the Gel Formula in the Star Anise flavor, and the trigger spray in both the Cinnamon Roll and the Star Anise flavors.  The Gel is used to start up a bait site; it can be squeezed onto trees, brush or anywhere else for a long lasting scent source.  Plus it holds up to the weather!  The Gel comes in 4 flavors; Star Anise, Blueberry, Caramel and Cookie Dough.  The spray can be used at the start or to refresh the site when you are hunting.  It comes in 14 delicious sounding scents, such as:  Star Anise, Bacon, Blueberry Muffin, Butterscotch, Caramel, Cinnamon Roll, Cookie Dough, Fruity Loop, Honey, Maple Syrup, Peanut Butter Cup, Raspberry, Toasted Marshmallow, and Wild Cherry Bomb, and 1 scent that only a bear could love, and I am pretty sure they do; Beaver Castor.

The day that I started using the gel, there were several bears and many hogs that came into the site.  When I was able to hunt the lease, I sprayed the Cinnamon Roll spray on the tree trunks, low brush and even a few rocks.  The last was to determine if the bears were truly attracted to the spray or if there was something else in the tree attracting them to that place.  I was pleasantly surprised to have the game camera getting pictures of the bear and hogs licking and otherwise working over the rock!!

I was able to hunt the lease for 6 days during the season.  Unfortunately the temperature was in the 80’s and 90’s and I was also dealing with a full moon.  The animals were all nocturnal.  While the Gel and Spray did not bring the bear into my stand during legal hunting hours, I did have nightly pictures of several nice bear.  The Big Bear Scents can bring them in, but it cannot make them come out during the day.

One word of warning though:  DO NOT use these scents when you might be hungry.  The cinnamon roll scent is so authentic, that my stomach growled with hunger the whole time I was in the tree.  I kept having images of the local doughnut shop and a hot cup of coffee going thru my mind!  Yes, I stopped on my way back to the hotel for a cinnamon roll!  I just couldn’t help myself!

An added bonus to bringing in the bear was the amount of feral hogs that were attracted to the scents.  In one area that I had drizzled the Gel, the hogs worked the area over so much, that it truly looked rototilled.  Of course, this will only work in places that already have hogs in the area.

I have many days of bear hunting to look forward to this season, and I will definitely be using the Big Bear Scents.  They have created an easy and effective method of drawing in bears.  I also will be trying the scents out on more feral hog hunts in the future.  Even though they are not designed for that, I am not against using anything that works!  Check your local hunting regulations for the legality of using these scents.
