Ed, I know that after EJ passed away, Tingley made and distributed them for awhile, then sold the Dailey formulas to Gary Romanaw. Gary made them for quite a few years, then they kind of disappeared. I really don't know what's happened to them since as I lost track. I visited Dailey's quite often in the years just preceeding his death. He and Vaughn Tingley taught me much and I will never forget those visits.
As to Butchers, Joey VanHouten could tell you best and maybe he will get on this thread, but I believe after Harold Huggins was incapable of making them anymore, the business just pretty much closed down. Harold had always made the lures at Butchers, both for Okey and for Ray Duntley and Alice in later years. The story goes that Alice never would sell the formulas to anyone. Some of the ingredients for some of the formulas were no longer available when certain animal products became illegal to obtain.

Yes Art, I am that old ;D
Eric, I'll bet I was trapping before you were born and I'll even bet EJ passed away before you were born. Okey passed away before I got to know him, but I knew Alice and Ray well.
Andy, are you that old ? ;D
I sold some back issues of FFG awhile back to a trapper in Ohio. He sent me an email and wondered if that was my father's ads in the classified section of some of those magazines. I had to tell him they were my ads, not my Dad's LOL

Dailey lures are being formulated by Rob Erikson of On target and Wildlife Control Technology. I have carried them in the past but most peope just pass them over, so I have not been keeping up on the stocking of them. Butcher's lures on the other hand, there has been interest in seeing them back on the market. No other information.
