Living in Canada can make it difficult to keep urine from freezing. Would anyone want to share their opinion on adding glycol to urine as an antifreeze. Are there better options? Maybe glycerin is the better option

20% glycerin to 80% urine is what I use after freeze up. It works!

I start out with salt and add glycerine if needed.

As a rule of thumb 25% volume of antifreeze to a water soluble or based material will provide good freeze proofing prevention to most products.

According to one of my lure making books Glycol can at times totally destroy the odor of urine after a period of time.

x5 , Glycol, has No value in natural products, it was designed for use in artificial products, the longer it lays in natural products the more damage is done.

Or just condense your urine you are using by doing so changes its freezing point.

red I don't want to give out your secret but that's done by freezing it correct?

Can I ask what happens if you leave the urine somewhere and it freezes? Will it be ruined? Is there a difference between home made and store bought in that situation?

There is an education on pee. Some does and some don't. Just have to figure out who to buy from. I know the pee I just received sat out in 15 degrees temps and no frozen pee here.

When itís real cold (around 25 degrees or less) I have had to thaw my fox urine from my fox pen every morning.its not frozen solid but there is ice formed. I keep an eye on the water dish and I know it isnít watered down.

I add glycerine at a 1:7 ratio for all urine used on the trapline. It works as antifreeze and helps urine resist dessication.

keep your pee bottle on the pickup dash by the defroster vent or inside coat pocket if your afoot. it smells but no worries about nontrapping riff raff wanting a ride or democrat wimmin trying to take advantage of you in the dark

What and how much you would add to a gallon of coyote pee? To stop it form freezen to keep it as it is for pee and not break it down like stated from what I understand reading this.
