I've done honey burns by boiling some water and mixing honey into the boiling water until the smell is sweet enough to permeate the air. I've brought in bears by doing the same thing with anise concentrate too. Bear crack is a mixture of heating a number of sweet and tasty foods together to bring the bears in. Most mixtures include marshmallows, Jell-O powder, syrup and sugar.
Another thing you could try is a bait ball hung high in a tree. When I bait in AK I get a bait ball for each bait site from Jessy at www.baitem907.com
She has multiple products made specifically for bringing bears to your site and they work very well. You can see some of my photos on her testimonial page.
