Mainly for targeting coons. Thinking anise, cherry, and persimmon. My question is what to add this oil to for a scent trail. I have been using cheap vegetable oil. Also, im not sure if im using enough or cutting it to much.
4oz per gallon ?
Is there something else i should be using instead ?

What are you adding....4 oz/gal?..each of the 3 things mentioned?

Persimmon Oil or ground persimmons or fermented/ground persimmons?

Anise and cherry can vary ALOT, depending who you get it from.

You just have to add it 1 oz at a time and see if you can get a whif.

Adding 1oz at a time answered what i was curious about . Using oils individually right now. Thought maybe i could see if they preferred one vs the other this way
Thanks

Put an ounce of shellfish oil in a pint of vegetable oil for a good trailing scent I know that's not one of the things you mentioned but it works good
