So I saw this at Academy Sports today.. It says Scent Control on the Bottle, but it says to spray the branches around your stand and in your area to replace your scent with the scent of acorns.. Wouldn't this be considered Baiting, and then be illegal on Public Land?

If not it may not be a bad idea since I am setting up in an area with oaks for opening weekend of Bow Season...

Thoughts?

Not baiting since the deer can't eat it, might work as a cover scent but thats all!

Well if that's the case then you open a whole different grey line.. The acorn syrup that you pour on the ground for attractant is not "eaten" either but is also not legal. Or am I incorrect on this?

I'd say if you pouring a syrup on the ground that's baiting, this is a COVER SCENT used to cover your scent not attract deer. Just my thinking.

I would think the syrup they would lick it like a mineral rock. So baiting is consuming.

Word for word from the 2015 Public Hunting Lands booklet.

"Baiting — The placement of minerals, vegetative materials, or other food substances used as an attractant for wildlife."

I don't think Cover Scent falls into this category. I believe you are good.

Ok. Always good to get others thoughts. The directions say do not spray it on clothes but around your hunting area ect.

But you are not spraying it for them to lick or consume just the smell of acorns vs a hunter.

If I am hunting imbued an oak tree I don't see the harm. But I will double up with my normal scent control.

I am thinking it is a waste of money overall.. One becuase you cannot spray it on your clothes, and does not WORK as a scent cover, and two to spray it around the area to get that "acorn scent" is pointless as it is not enough to attract deer into the area like bait.

I am thinking another gimmick that is trying to ge tmy money.
