made this stuff last year, when the acorns started falling, and it works really well(just didnt think about posting it). when i get done with my morning hunt tomorrow, i'll be making this again.
all you do is collect about a pound of acorns. use a pair of pliers to crack the shells. get a pot and fill it with the acorns, then fill the pot with water. boil the acorns for about 10 minutes. get a plastic spray bottle(i got a few small ones, and i kept some old scent killer bottles) and strain the acorn liquid into the bottle, and you are ready to use. when i did this last year, i filled my bottle and used it twice. on my next hunt, i left the bottle there, since i was coming back to hunt that afternoon. when i got back..........squirrels had chewed thru the bottle...torn the whole damn bottom of it off trying to get to them acorns. its good and works, and its cheap to do....alot cheaper than most of the store bought stuff.
for another scent cover.....get some cedar shavings, some small pine cones, some different grass and some dirt from your hunting area. do it the same way as you did the acorns, and strain it into a bottle. it makes you smell like your area you hunt, and thats always good. hope this helps some of ya'll out and saves $$ from having to buy as much scent killer or similar stuff.
