Default Vanilla and Evercalm

Tried the vanilla this weekend, as well as evercalm. Sprayed everything down with vanilla including my pop-up, release and bow sling, boots too. When I got to my parking spot I would coat the edges and bottoms of my boots with a layer of evercalm, as well as my pop-up window openings. Skittish east Texas Deer couldnít even tell I was there. Multiple mature shooters in range throughout the weekend and never got busted bc of scent. Had three deer within 5 yards of my pop-up including an old doe, which usually I cannot get a deer to even come into a set-up with a pip-up blind. Anyways, take this as you wish but itís a success from me

I have not tried the Vanilla, but I am a TRUE Believer in the Evercalm. I have had numerous deer dead downwind of me and never been busted..

Cow patty works best for me. Pick some up and put it by your stand, step in it, wipe alittle on ya pants. Works better than anything else I have used. The fresher the better

Glad you gave it a try, been working for me for a long time.
Sitting on the ground this weekend I had a doe nearly get close enough to touch.
And I saw 4 of the best bucks I've seen on my place in 30 years. All of them were down wind of me on multiple occasions.

I used to use vanilla. Never had any issues. I personally think scent free and you are fine. That said, I use some cover scents. I prefer Deer Dander to Evercalm. Same price but lasts a lot longer. I use both though.

The area you hunt makes a difference too. Hill Country deer are more used to people and smells than say the ones in deep East Texas.

Scent killer isnít completely effective for me. Thatís why I tried vanilla. Iíve been busted too many times using scent killer alone. I wash everything in scent killer, keep it in a separate box, then evercalm on my boots and vanilla on everything else!

I've only used evercalm on one hunt at the end of last season and it worked great. Had a couple does come in and feed at 8yrds. We finished up eating the last steaks from her last night

I've used Evercalm many times with success around what are typically skittish deer.

A word of caution: **DO NOT LEAVE IT IN THE CAR, IT MELTS** One late October weekend I left my pack in the truck and the pocket that had the stick of Evercalm in it wasn't zipped all the way...well the truck got a bit warm that afternoon and the stuff melted all over the seat. Clean all you want but you'll never get that smell out...it's been 6 years and when the humidity is just right my truck reeks of it.

It did, and like a dummy I threw it away because I didn't want it making extra noise in my pack. Lesson learned.

So, when using a particular product....how does one know if it really works or not?

If they spook it was more than likely your movement. If they are calm.....they may have been anyway without the product.

I had trouble getting mature bucks to come within 100 yards of me, I saw multiple, as well as deer eating corn at 20 yards not hardly paying attention to me.

Short answer, you don't. Long answer, it's a game of trending. As with any good science you're only supposed to change one variable...my scent control game remained the same, my hunting tactics remained the same and the only thing I changed was smearing Evercalm on the legs of my feeder when I walked in. I noticed a change in the trend over the long term and that was deer who typically either avoided feeders or were very skittish around the feeders seemed more at ease and I tended to have more action at the stand.

So let me get this straight?



For years here we have been told that vanilla needed to be conditioned into our deer's corn or the area over time so that when we sprayed it on ourselves they did not freak out because it was a new smell. It was to be a smell they were conditioned too as food or not threatening while they ate. Now we are being told that we can just spray it on anytime, walk in the woods one weekend and mature bucks will now close the distance they have been hanging at for all the previous hunts?

Considering I started this two weeks prior to hunting by spraying the corn, Iíd say itís a pretty effective method. Me as well as multiple others have not had much luck getting in range of solid bucks on our place in Woodville in the whole time Iíve been on the place. (13 years) I had 3 deer within spitting range of me in my pop-up this weekend, when usually they scent you long before you ever see them. I picked this us from Gar Guys thread on pressured deer, so you can nay say all you want, but then again we arenít hunting San Angelo deer

Well while you were licking vanilla off your windows you forgot to mention the corn part prior to the hunts... I would have not commented otherwise..


Good luck on shooting the smartest deer in the whole wide world..

I sprayed myself liberally with a very strong mixture of vanilla extract and water before walking to the blind. A little forky followed a nubbin buck to my blind while the nubber was sniffing my vanilla trail to where I am. Forky even licked the stairs. Neither spooked and and approached downwind of me. Impressive.

I've been using evercalm, for years when it was first called "deer herd on a stick".
As you have discovered, it really works. About ten years ago or better, I had a young buck so close to my pop up, I could have reached out of the window(it was closed) and patted him on the but. He never had a clue.
I never leave camp without it! Oh, I didn't mention I just bought a stick a couple of hours ago

Tried the vanilla thing today. 2.5 oz vanilla diluted with 10 oz water in a 12 oz scent spray bottle. After raking a spot out of the leaves and setting up the pop up up. Climbing in and getting settled. Had a doe come in at 10 yards smelling everything trying to find out what/where it was. Works pretty good.

I was impressed with the results as well. Whatever it is they donít associate it with danger!

It was crazy. I have pretty much given up on taking a bath in scent free stuff. I do wash my hunting clothes in it every so often just to keep the foreign odors down to a minimum and just learning to hunt the wind. I did neither that day and she came and walked right down the trail I used for access. Never alerted to anything. Just a sniffing around at the ground and in the air. It was Kool
