Is it possible that urine could be “bad”? I ordered some urine from a bait/lure maker and when I started using it, was like turning the lights off. Nothing. I set a lot off sandy 2 track roads. Obvious tracks repeatedly going by my sets. Not working the sets at all. Possible that the urine caused this? More likely it’s just the time of year?

More than one gallon of tea with a little ammonia and a drop or two of skunk has been sold as urine. Sure a coyote fox or cat may walk right on by good pee, but not very often. Usually if they don't stop and have a sniff its cause the wind is blowing the wrong direction.

Not everyone was blessed or fortunate enough to have a tutor.

No tutors around here for the most part. Everybody hung their traps up in the early 80’s. It pretty well died out around here.

We still got a few left. But they will never mentor someone. And if you ask them for advice they will give you bad advice and all laugh at you when you leave and do it. Never could figure it out.

I don't think you've looked too hard. Maybe try getting ahold of the president of the Nebraska Furharvesters. Eric will point you in the right direction. I'm not sure where you're located. I've taken multiple new trappers on my line with me, and they always seem to do well afterwards. I like watching them go out and put it all together. Some have more drive than me and end up doing better.


Eventually everything must die.

Don't need one now. But sure wish I had one when I started lol. Tuff beginning to say the least. I got a few cousins started in beaver trapping. And one of them is doing damage control

A buddy and I trapped as kids, sorta self taught, then 30+ years later the archives on this site and asking questions here made a huge difference. Basically the more you do it, the more you learn.

Ya, these forums are probably more beneficial than a instructor. I joined last Feb right at end of season. And made me a way better trapper, I'm having my best season by far. One guy has really helped me with coyote trapping. Anyone trapping or interested in trapping should join this website
