    So being rather novice still at this point... I know about trying to be scent free and such, but what is the vanilla doing here? Does it act a bit like an attractant or is it acting as a odor mask, but not to scare off the deer in the process?

    Or am I way off on the possible usage?

    It acts as a "soothing" cover scent.

    Ok... that is kind of what it seemed like it would be.

    Thanks!
