Anyone ever ground up jackrabbit for coyote/fox bait? Iíve been pondering my options for a bait that wonít break the bank, cause I am gonna need A LOT of it next season but I have very limited funds. There are several critters here that are abundant and unregulated that I could pile up a bunch. Jackrabbit is one, packrats another, ground squirrels, etc.

Iím thinking just straight ground jack with a slight taint would be pretty effective, since predators around here pick them up off the road daily, theyíre very accustomed to scavenging jackrabbit carcasses. Just curious if itís been done before.

I didnít think rabbit meat gave off much scent is what Iíd been told. Guessing that was cottontails though. Then again I might be totally off. Heck, canít hurt. My son used leftover restaurant BBQ (minus sauce) down a dirt hole and caught a coyote, lol. Iíve used fresh grilled short rib bones and caught a coyote.

When I was young, living in central Oregon, we shot jackrabbits, skinned and gutted them, chopped them up with a hatchet, and put them in glass jars. Large jars, then left the lids loose, and let them rot. The smell was horrible, but drew in coyotes.


Made it almost 3 years without censor!

Your bobcats would make better bait IMHO.

Both rabbits, jacks and pack rats are all good predator baits. It all depends on how you process them so they will hold up to the elements in your region. Either fresh preserved, slightly aged and preserved or a blend of both would be good. Those staple prey animals are a vital part of a predators diet. You get that meat in front of them they will respond.
