Sweet Dreams is a scent attractant, not a food. The scent brings Bears in from great distances and does calm them. Some bears will eat it, most dont, and that is because it is not a food and doesnt taste as good as its smells. Most people that bait bears use some type of food, scraps, dog food, cooking grease, cookies etc... Others dont bait at all. Sweet Dreams can be used alone or with bait. The majority of the time, the scent brings bears in.I did the same as gobblengrunt and put some Sweet dreams out each time I freshened my bait.
also trying to associate the sweet smell with new bait.
but was suprised that while an average day I had LOTS of bears come in. none really paid attention to the trees I had put the sweet dreams on.
But they def seemed more comfortable on the days I added fresh sweet dreams to those trees.
Was surprised they didnt lick it off the trees as it sure smelt great .
