Hey gang,

I decided to check out the Wolf Fangs (been using Berkshires for 10 years or so) as it seemed they are much more durable (reusable). So, I got me 3 dozen by the US mail yesterday and man, do they stink LOL.
It smells like they were sprayed by a skunk, then eaten, passed and sprayed again by the same skunk LOL
Some of these are for anchoring beaver snares and DPs so I don't much care, but I wanted to use a dozen for some fox traps and that has me nervous... should I boil these things or something or am I just being paranoid?


Just happy to be here.

Car wash them itís just some stink transfer from the supply house never walk in fur shed, supply place or hospital that did not stink a bit.


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

I buy from a nearby trap supplier that also make their own bait a lures and everything I buy from them smells skunky No big deal to me, but yeah just take them to the car wash and than dye them. The only thing I wonít buy through them is wax, because that stuff really sucks up odors.
