I use rabbit deer beef chicken pork.... it really doesn't matter. The whole idea is to get their attention and make them work the set. The more they want the bait the longer they work the set. That means more of a chance of catching. I try and use a bait scent combination that is natural yet still different enough to peak curiosity.

I was cleaning out a barn down in kentucky with a friend of mine and came across a big jar of channel cat dip bait. Naturally being a trapper I had to stick my nose in it and thought it smelled good and bloody with a little cheese too. I stuck it in a dirthole set Tuesday and had a small coyote in it this morning. I think that proves that any bait that makes them stop and work the set is what will work. And I'm betting that idea will work no matter the location....

I like lure and bait. My TAr Vait is the best ive found for canines and exes cousin caught bobs in Missouri on it. If anyone wants the recipe hollar. I dont keep lure or bait secrets. I sold lure and bait commercially for decades.
help: is it cheaper to buy strechers or cheaper to make them?'

pops: Can make a wooden adjustable coyote / cat stretcher for about 6 bucks if you don't count your labor and you already have the equipment, and you use pine 1x4's from the lumber yard.
