Bear Scent & Lure
We use anise (the confectioners scent added to black licorice).
It's available in liquid form that works well in a squirt bottle.
Also liquid smoke.
Another trick is to pull a can of bacon grease up a tree and tip it over so it runs down the tree trunk.
All of these scents linger in the air for a while.
If there's a bear within a mile or so (and he doesn't smell you) he'll come around.
