Any idea(s) on what is used to refill this. I tried cotton/sage grass tips and just didn't like as well. I can buy another just thought it might be something I had at the house.

I'm fairly certain those things are the cheapest part of hunting. I'd just buy a new one. :D

Having a daughter I've realized I can ale some of her sidewalk chalk and a hammer and make my own. Bit aggravating as you have on get it ground up but works well. I've missed a few chunks and had had to take the lid off and get them out. Something else that would work and probably be cheaper is chalk for a chalk line

Sodium bicarbonate. Has a million uses . Great to check the wind or to stop breaking wind.

Flour, unscented talcum powder, or corn starch would work.

Or a whole box of baking soda(sodium bicarbonate) which is cheaper

I just tied a small down feather to an alligator clip with 3" of thread and then clip it to the bill of my cap.
It's silent, scent-free and easily replaced.
