Welcome to the outdoor supply house that is a continuation from the Arnold family that started the trend back in 1870. Lon Arnold was a market hunter in Maine, when it was legal. He hunted caribou, bear, moose, deer, and trapped elusive animals that roamed the wild forests of Maine. He developed scents to attract all these animals.

In 1918, Lon's son, Walter, was the pioneer in America for developing and selling deer lures, trapping lures, and dog training and breaking scents for houndsmen. For 44 years he continued the Arnold tradition of making and selling animal scents. Oscar Cronk became friends with Walter Arnold, the legendary mountain man, and bought the Arnold business in 1962. Since that time he has used the Arnold knowledge along with his 50 years experience developing the best deer and bear lures on the market today. Oscar, well known hunter, trapper, houndsmen, and veteran outdoorsman makes and tests every product before it's placed on the market.              

From the 1870s to the new millennium the Arnold and Cronk tradition of serving sportsmen has never stopped. The knowledge gained by Lon and Walter Arnold has been transferred to Oscar Cronk. Oscar is not only the heir to this dynasty, but is the "Last of the Breed."

Cronk's Famous Deer Lures

Hunters, these lures are the result of many years' experience in compounding and field testing animal lures and scents. All our lures have been field tested and have gone through the Cronk's Outdoor Test (C.O.T.). I have been in the lure making business longer than most of the highly advertised lure makers of today. Buy your hunting scents with confidence. All of my attractor lures have names and each one has a nationwide reputation to back it up.

Wishing you the best of luck on your hunt.
