Synthetic lures have been around for along time. That guy from Canada had a whole line of synthetic lures. Some of them worked pretty good.
Then we had SFE which was a very good canine lure. I think that It was developed for the government trappers back In the day. I don't know If It's even available any more. But I still have a few ounces In my shed. A little bit goes a long ways.

This will most likely begin in increments of substituting 10-25% synthetic material to a previous formula to begin, then it will gradually over time increase the amount incorporated in the years to come. Not much unlike what is happening in our retail industry today.

They decrease the size or volume of a product and call it concentrated. This is a mental conditioning period to validate the smaller size volume and charge you more or try to hold the line for a while.

This is all assuming we will still have trapping as something that will still be legal to do.


The three quarter or even half ounce would be just fine with me. It usually takes me two seasons to use a bottle of lure I have learned when it comes to lure usage that more is not better

If some Company had a Chemist manufacture an EXACT copy of a certain brand of Lure , all out of synthetic ingredients , and you could not tell by look or smell that it was any different than the natural lures and it attracted the same animals as the real lure it copied; why wouldn't you use it ?

Mass produce the lures in China for 30 Cents for a 1 Ounce Bottle . Sell it for $2.00 an Ounce. Trappers would be running a 3 Minute Mile to buy it !! No need to worry about Gland shortages. No price disruptions.

The synthetics did not hold up well, and were not as attractive as the formulas that have natural ingredients. I'd rather use tooth paste or bacon..

The good natural stuff pays for itself over and over and over. I'll pay more for the good stuff, no problem..
