ok so been looking at different options for trap dye. I used the old timer method of walnut hulls and water. I been toying with the idea of adding a water based acrylic to that and see if I can get better results. Taking a look at Dakota Line trap dye, to me it just looks like an acrylic type pigment that is water based. What do you guys think. Oh yeh forgot to add .. I am cheap.. money is hard to come by when you live in the backwoods. Ive also heard that using maple leaves can make a good dye

Maple leaves do make a passable trap dye. I've put leaves in my boiling pot and leave them sit for a week or so. Bring to a boil and add traps. I've also used water based paint, watered down and dipped snares in it. Worked very well.

Oak leaves, brown and dry; Walnut hulls, Sumac berries, nd my favorite: Spalted Red Oak heart wood, dry rotted so it crumples in your hand.
