Currently Nobody knows much about the producers but I can tell you now the state of Vermont is seriously looking into all scents for several reasons, first and foremost to be certain these are safe products we expose our wildlife to. Whether it be deer, moose, bear or any of the other species scents are designed for.

The big concern for me Is the introduction of Diseases into the state of Vermont.
In a letter I received from the The Vermont Commissioner, Wayne Laroche expressed his concerns as well and explained the steps Vermont is taking to ensure these products are safe to use.
It's Important we learn how these products are prepared/preserved, what controls are placed on producers if any at all and if they are operating with disease free herds etc., etc.
with regard to this issue I've always said I use these products as well but I really am concerend if I'm doing more harm than good.
