Our pheromones are a combination of putative human and ape pheromones. They are impregnated into a special plastic that will hold and emanate the scent for 3 weeks in the field.
This formula was used on the successful ‘Skookum Expedition” which yielded the famous “Skookum Cast”. It was also featured in the television shows “Close Encounters”, “Sasquatch, Legend Meets Science” (Discovery Channel) and many other expeditions.
Directions:Use rubber gloves to avoid scenting yourself. Place wire or string in hole of tag and place 6 to 8 feet above ground to keep small animals away. Put in front of camera traps, DNA traps, etc. This scent will travel for a mile or more, so take wind direction into account in placement. Scent travels downhill in early morning hours and then uphill later in the A.M. when the sun heats the earth. Puff some chalk-dust, dry dirt, feathers or milkweed seeds in the air to determine light breezes. Track upwind to your placement of the pheromone chips when returning. These animals will circle downwind to get a bearing on the scent releasing from the chip. You will also keep from spooking animals by your downwind human scent.
Try to keep your own scent to a minimum by washing your clothes in unscented laundry detergent. Most common laundry detergents put a heavy, perfumed odor on your clothes. Use rubber boots and latex gloves. Being more aware of your own scent will make you more successful in the field.
