How Scent by the Yard Began
Scent by the Yard creator, Cary Dion, came up with the idea of Scent by the Yard while watching “Shark Tank” on the T.V. He thought to himself that if these dummies can come up with some kind of invention, then so can I. He thought about what he liked to do, something that he enjoyed. He thought about deer hunting and something related to deer hunting. He tried to think of something in deer hunting that has not really changed in many years. He thought about scent dispersal and how it could be approved upon. There were not a lot of products on the market for putting out deer scent (deer urine). Most of the products for scent dispersal were somewhat similar in that they are small plastic containers with some sort of cotton wicking material in them to hold and put out the scent. He had used them for years with very limited success, there were limited options on the market for sale to use, so he used what was available. The little plastic containers or stand-alone wicks could be effective if the deer just happened to be directly downwind and in line with the little plastic containers. After all, we all know how effective the whitetail deer’s nose is at picking up minuscule amounts of scent. It is their number one defense against danger. If you have never been busted by the nose of a whitetail deer, then either you have never hunted them or you’re not telling the truth. Bucks have a tendency of stopping dead in their tracks because they cross a trail where hunters entered the woods eight hours earlier, turn around and head back in the direction they came from.
