It never ceases to amaze me the number of fur bearers that are attracted to menthol . Hereís a way to use that to your advantage.

Iím an avid snuff user . Not so much smokeless dip tobacco ( although I do enjoy a pinch from time to time) but Iím talking the Old World tobacco product that consists of powdered tobacco inhaled gently up the nose . Donít ask me how I got started on it, not important. Anyhow, on my favorites is a German one called Ozona President made by PŲschl . Typical German snuff, itís moist , fermented, and mentholated . That gives you a solid wintry kick soon as it hits your nose with a sweet, fermented , tobacco flavor on the back side. Clears you up nicely, too. Great stuff and Iíll have it and use it through out the day. Gonna have some right now.

A side benefit is you have ready made lure right there in your schnozz . As the day progresses, youíll develop brown , mentholated, mucus. Simply cover and nostril and blow and Ď voila!!í . Muskrats dig it and cats seem captivated, as well.

Disclaimer- Aaron Proffitt does not endorse the use of tobacco by minors . This not a safe alternative to cigarettes .

I have used something similar. It came in a little chrome container with a flip top on a corner. It was really mentholated. Never thought I should be saving my snot.... ha

Way back in my Rugby days we used Dr. Rumney's Mentholated Snuff. Big, brown boogers in the scrum.

Aaron, I use to respect and admire your opinions, even when you stepped in to defend some of my crazy brainstorms.
The Bugger Set?! Really? I am really going to have to think on this one for a while...
I have spit Red Man on a castor mound and the beaver seemingly emptied the entire swamp bottom of its leaves to cover it up.
