Itís a good thing bait and lure are supposed to provide variety, and that one product could provide a lot of it aye? Now forgive me for my ignorance but arenít the ads pertaining to bait and lure from the wizards with all the knowledge that sprinkle magic juju in their bottles geared to animals ďinvestigatingĒ the product? Things like ď cant resist investigating, come to this one, will make your animal stay around the set, will collect animals, can count on any time of year, investigate this invest thatĒ? The list goes on with the ďgreatnessĒ of ads. Isnít that the whole purpose of bait and lure, is to get an animal to that location to ďinvestigateĒ its odor?
Digging, rubbing, rolling after itís dug up? After the animal is there, if the trapper canít seal the deal, that isnít a bait and lure problem. I donít sit in a bait and lure room with a tinfoil hat on, nor do I set jobs up with one on. Iím not in agreeance with the need to use magic or whatever other bs spins that folks need to chalk up when it comes to bait and lure, itís unnecessary. I simply allow the animal to tell me what interests them by their responses. How many of these ďgreatĒ bait and lures sit on trappers shelves, to have another purchased product placed in front of it because it isnít getting the job done for the individual? Comes down to what works for the individual. ďComplexĒ lures imo isnít the answer.
With ADC work the trapper is absolutely certain that his target is present; homeowners are showing contractors exactly where the critters have been seen.
Nothing adc about testing bait and lure out in the field, you either attract them or not. ^^^lol
Simple concept.... step one. Build a bait or lure based off of responses from the target animal not off your nose. When testing bait and lure...it has nothing to do with ADC or knowing where the animal is.
Step 2. Punch holes and place bait in them.
Step 3. Trail cam if you want if not check them for activity.
I don't test side by side until a final product has been put together. Even then, results speak for themselves
Step 4.. Do this on a consistent basis through out the year regardless of season, then repeat process. You can come up with any excuse you want on why one needs magic in a bottle, it's bs. I believe you will get more out of putting in the work than relying on some magic juju. This is just how I like to do things, the "experts" probably have way "cooler" ways.
