Hi,
I have several bait Ideas I made up or found somewhere else I'd like to share with you! I'm targeting coyotes, bobcats, grey foxes, coons, possums, skunks, and badgers with these baits. Let me know what you think!

#1.
2 can Mackerel
3 eggs
3/4 cup Fish Oil or 1 cup cooking oil.

#2.
Chunked bobcat meat or beef.
Blue Cheese Dressing.
Put meat in the bottom of a jar and cover thickly with Blue Cheese Dressing. Repeat until you have desired amount of bait.

#3.
2 oz. Beaver Castor
1/2 oz. Beaver Oil
1/4 oz. Civet Musk
1/4 oz. Catnip oil.
1/2 oz. Ambergris

If y'all think I should make changes let me know!
AuthorTrapper.

I'll take a shot at this since no one else has responded. Keep in mind you could probably catch a coyote or two on this stuff but that doesn't mean it a great bait. Ultimately the animals you are targeting will tell you if it works not a bunch of guys on the internet. I'm not an expert lure maker but I'll give you my opinion on your stuff. My guess is that on formula #1 and #2 if you got a mild interest from a coyote you would be doing pretty good. #3 has some ingredients that work well for cats but you might have to test it and tweak it to get the formulation to right balance to be a good lure. A good food base such as liver or a cat glands base instead of lanolin might make it a better lure. Just my two cents.

Don't know if this will help you but my skunk will not touch beef but loves chicken and pork! I was shocked as I never found uncooked pork to be a good bait in the past.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

Hot (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman):
Gatoraid bottle
beaver castor about 1/4 way up
whale / seal oil (bacon grease if you cant get seal or whale, stupid Marine Mammal Protection Act, when Trump going to axe that) about 4 tea spoon.
fill the rest with non toxic boiler anti-freeze

The unacceptable word was another word for cat. Surprised it is unacceptable.
