I wonder if dirt would do the trick. Deer are often intrigued by unusual smells that they don't necessarily associate with predators. Back when I was bowhunting with a climber and switchback, I would often dip a cotton ball into vanilla extract and place it on a tree about 20 yards away. I don't think it attracted deer from any distance, but most deer moving through would eventually go over and sniff it positioning them for a broadside 20 yard shot. If I passed, they would just go back to feeding. The point is that, unless the odor is associated by deer with a predator, it is probably a non-issue.
I thought about burying it in the kids sandpile. Couldn’t hurt. Also thought about giving it a good smoke over our fire pit. The weather is supposed to be nice this weekend so that might be an option. Set out back, drink a few brews, smoke a hemp rope. While my wife and kids are gone watching the Taylor Swift concert at the movie theater.
