Look at em go! Thanks for posting Michael Morris- people sometimes wonder why I am so fond of a rub set when the cats get primed up but your clip explains it perfectly. It also explains why any type of rub compound goes high enough up a post the paw has to be on my pan for anyone to get to it.

As far as the original question I have used lots of different things from store bought to home made. If I could only choose one ingredient it would be castor but there are lots of things to add and I am anxious to try Truman's ingredients to my own.

Pecos Valley is my favorite cat lure or rub set lure, I just ain't got the video for it, but I believe Tracy Truman does. Rub lures work great for coyotes as well. Here is an old video where I had a bobcat show interest in SV, not a great reaction, but he would of stepped on my trap, this video also shows coyote rubbing great on some skunky castor I made towards the end and in the middle of the video. Coyotes loved to rub. Biggest thing I learned from this video (from Wayne) is if you are gonna make a rub set for coyotes, you better put it high, or catch them before they rub/roll crazy

Coyote, fox and Cat Lure Reactions

Calling Wayne is the way to order from him, and he can line you out too. Wayne makes GREAT Lures and he is a smart fella, he will get you set up.

I am gonna put some more of Waynes lures in front of cameras here really soon, can learn a lot from testing lures!

Wayne's a great Christian man, and hes killed more coyotes than parvo and rabies combined.

Bob Jameson's Sierra Mist

Sierra Mist: (Bobcat Gland Rubbing Scent) Two years of development has gone into this multi glandular bobcat scent. I formulated a similar product for a European University in Croatia for the specific study of an endangered Lynx specie once commonly inhabiting that part of the world. I was asked to develop a lure that would induce an aggressive rubbing instinct for the purpose of collecting hair samples for DNA analysis.

I've used Bob's products with much success, including this one. Bob's products have been a main stay of this industry for quite a while now.
I don't use very many rub sets, as while effective, I miss too many bobcats at them. They "step funny" sometimes, and I miss them, perhaps because they look to rub, and line up differently than walking into other sets. I hate missing bobcats, because unlike dogs, they may not be back. So I set about 1 or 2 rub sets a year, because they're fun more than they are highly productive. That said, some guys do real well on bobcats at rub sets. But where the bobcats are really spaced out and they used to bring HIGH $$$ = you won't find many using rub sets as often as other sets because a miss = heartache. In areas where bobcats have smaller territories and come around often (or where females reside) they'd be more apt to catch a missed cat when they come back around for a second rub-a-dub.

Blessings,
Mark

If you use a good rub lure a bobcat takes lots of steps at a set. If you watch Michael's video above and visualize where you place your trap, would you catch or miss?

Mark, for being a smart man I think you must be doing it wrong neighbor. A good rub set works so good IDT I ever miss one.
