Shew-wee
Just got through putting 2 gallons from the
bucket into jars. cry

Anybody here have a recipe for coyote bait
that they'd share? I don't make any for sale,
or trap for fur. These ratty good for nothing
dogs here can't be sold, so there's no use to
skin and cure the hides.
I try to work on the varmints to benefit the
local edible wildlife and to help keep the
neighbor livestock and pets safe and secure.

Many thanks for any ideas

They are quite fond of a neighbor's Schipperkes. Came right into the yard and ate them up.

Yeah they will. Whatever is slower or holds
still long enough. Ate a lady's little cutesy pie
dog while she was watching it poop from her
back deck. Ran off with it squalling the whole
way back to the brush, then it chomped down.
Doesn't take much to turn a rainbow and unicorn
farts type into a varmint hater.
One of the universities here a while back did
some kind of study and figured that coyotes
love cats and cat turds best out of what they
tried.

Myself, I've been using the Maxima bait
solution the last 2 batches of meat bait
and was wanting to try something different
if anybody had some homegrown recipe
that they didn't mind sharing on the site.
Preferably something that didn't involve
expensive tinctures or oils that have to
be purchased. I'm pretty sure that what
I've used in the past is mostly fish oil
with maybe some gland and/or urine
or the like.

If you have the land, go to the livestock auction and buy whatever critter floats your boat. Like The sick cows that the fast food places buy. Take it to your field along woods line. In a couple days you’ll heat up your barrels.

I’ll look for some recipes some old govt trappers gave me. If you can start putting up some horse meat and rattlesnake that would be good. Both make good bases for bait.

Do you pull glands from your catch?

Only coyote butt glands and pads lately.
Only use those for lure

No horses available for donations in
my area. The only rattlers are the protected
timber rattlers, and I wouldn't risk TPWD
dancing on my head over that.
There's usually people I know that waste
meat by letting it get too old or trying to
clean out whatever for something fresh.
Then there's some critters that just can't
resist wanting to participate

I hope to get one of those nice skunk
poles later on and I'd probably concentrate
more on those given the price of quill
It's a shame that these hides are worthless
and a jar of pure stink is more valuable

Horse hoof trimmings ground fine. Place in a clean Mason jar w/ enough clean rain water to cover plus about an inch. Bury for 30 days deep enough not to freeze. Strain & use at DEEP dirthole or chaff sets. Makes a strong digging responce.

and ground. I approached a couple of farriers about
their waste, and apparently it's a sought after
something so that what would otherwise be trash
is spoken for. Too much trouble to pursue any
further, and I wasn't going around looking for
beaver grease to go with it, so I scratched that off

But sincere thanks anyway for the suggestion

I go to the local meat market and ask for the "saw dust" from their meat saws. Ball it up into little meat balls and drop it in a bait hole or just spread it around. Works pretty good. Also just getting scraps will attract them as well.
