Iím trying to put together an order of bait and lures. Iíve been using the same ones with good success for over a decade, but theyíre getting hard to find so Iím having to try new ones. So what are your favorites? Trapping canines and cats only.

There a pile of good ones out to try...most guys I know are afraid to try something different but are surprised when positive things start happening. Try some of JC Conners lures they are different and very well made.

hard to beat any of the fox hollows lures because they are only sold in select stores also mtp has a list on their web site on top lures sold by species

I switched over to Bob Jameson lures and baits this last season and was very pleased. These NV cats seemed to like them. Reminds me, I need to send him a couple photos for his catalog.

Can't go wrong with any of Mark June's. Widowmaker bait and Flat 365 lure are superb!

Keg creek and grahams baits for me.
I dont use lure much at all anymore.
Urine and bait.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

I still use Hoosier trappers supply Top Dog Predator bait with several of their lures Vixen Elixir is my all time favorite lure. Good stuff and great people to deal with. Bought a good supply a couple of years ago but need to resupply by this fall.
