Best way to use the cover scent and attractant.
First put your clothing hunting gear the night before into a plastic tote also put a rag with the oil on it in with the clothing, seal with the lid. Next day remove the hunting gear along with the rag with the oil and proceed to your hunting site. Set out the rag about 20 to 30 feet from your hunting blind or stand. Also remember all attractants need the scent carried by the wind to the deer's nose, also the hunter scent is carried to that deer as well. With the pumpkin seed oil, it could be applied to the hunters skin area including the face and hands. If you can eat pumpkin pie you should not have any allergic reaction, test a little on the fore arm first. You'll find most other scent cover recommend to not apply to skin. Big difference and advantage with the pumpkin seed oil. Our oil we make on our farm in Michigan using a special blend of different types of pumpkin seed, we obtained different kinds of seeds we planted from around the world. These varieties were observed on our farm to which the deer damaged the most to eat the seeds. Some of the types we could not stop the deer even with a high Joules volts of shock electric fence. Our pumpkin seed oil are all natural not an essential oil which many cover scents an attractant are made from, many use a chemical process to extract the scent. The deer know the difference. One last instruction when using the pumpkin seed oil. Use the scents only when hunting, don't leave it in the hunting area when you are not there. When the scent is left for several days deer may visit the scent several times and not be rewarded with food. After the deer get no reward of food after several times they will ignore the scent. If you want to use it for camera views, leave it out for only a couple of days then remove.

Deer and animals don't find food by accident, they locate by smell. Our pumpkin seed oil has a strong scent that bring in the deer, both does and bucks. It's like ripening acorns in a tree, deer can smell them over a mile away then come to that area, our scent works the same way. Use on scent strips, cotton balls or scent containers. Place high enough off the ground to avoid deer contact. After each hunting day remove scented material, and place out for the next hunting day - that keeps deer from coming to your area when you are not there. Scent lasts for several hunting trips.
Several states have talked about the banning of deer urine for hunters to attract deer and there possible containing chronic wasting disease prions and effecting the deer herd. Our family farm has come up with a safe and natural alternative scent product . It similar to having ripening acorns in an oak tree having the scent bring in deer from a long distance to see if any are available. We are pressing pumpkin seeds into oil. The odor or scent from the pumpkin seed oil acts the same way. The best thing about it's use there is no food to eat no muzzle to muzzle contact deer don't linger in the area to leave droppings or urine, once like acorn if they are not found available they move on. The pumpkin oil scents are deposited on absorbent materials like scent strips, cotton balls, or scent wicked containers. They should be put out the day when hunting and retrieved at the end of the hunting day. This keeps deer from coming to the scented area when you are not there and keeps them coming several time looking for food and finding none. They may not keep visiting the area with a disappointed outcome. Store in a sealed bag to be used over several times. By the way it has a pleasant smell.

They may have been eating corn or clovers then have a new food smell, the pumpkin seed oil come across the nose, out of curiosity alone they will come to investigate where the scent is coming from, both does and bucks come to find the source of the scent.
One story I would like to share on how we recognized how deer love this food source. For years we always had deer tear open the pumpkins to get to the seeds, but lately we had something unusual happen. On our farm we grow watermelons also a cucurbit, we grow mainly seedless varieties, but to have proper pollination we add every fifth plant that is a seeded varieties, for the past three year when the deer come to eat the melons they only eat the seeded ones. To me that shows the importance of the seeds to them and by smell know which ones have seeds. We have found a safe scent product that can be used and have no more of comingling of deer that would have naturally occurred. It just bring same deer that are naturally together to an area that can be viewed or hunted.
