That is a generous offer! PM sent. Thank you! :)

Badtoys, have you decided what scent combinations you would like me to start the study with?

No rush. I am just tying to figure out the right order to run the test. Do you have your starting point chosen yet? scents are listed earlier in this thread. You got first dibs. ;)

Do you want that as it is listed here, or alone?

Never tried the vanilla thing nor peanut butter, but many years ago while deer hunting with my ex-father-in-law,
he had taken along a small can of peanuts to snack on. Just a few minutes after he had opened his can of
peanuts, a nice buck walked by. Well, from that day forward he always had a can of peanuts with him
when he went deer hunting. I can't say that he took more deer while eating peanuts, but he felt that it had worked
for him once and was therefore something that he added to his arsenal. At first I smiled and just chalked it up to
harmless superstition/coincidence, but after thinking about it, I realized that maybe the smell of those peanuts,
especially since they were salted, did act as a scent attractant. Who's to say?
It isn't what happens to us, it is how we deal with it, that matters most.
