Hey , cold and wet out and I was bored so I went and found some for ya -
Bait: Any red flesh will do but the best is beaver, horse, woodchuck, skunk, housecat or bobcat. Cut into desired sized pieces, or grind. Place in gallon jar, 2/3 full. Place lid on loosely, just enough to keep flies out. Place in warm but shaded area until bait swells and juice forms on it and it has a frothy look to it. Just a good taint, not rotten. Stir in solution with a long fork. Mix well and when finished, the solution should cover the settled bait mass by about an inch. Bury a foot or so deep in earth trenches, lids on firm but not tight as jars may explode. Age in trench for at least one month. Solution: In a gallon jar, place 2 pints sun rendered fish oil (catfish or trout is best), 1 pint of glycerine and 20 heaping tablespoons of sodium benzoate. Add 1 ounce of valerian, 1 ½ ounces of tincture of aseofetida, then 8 tablespoons of ground beaver castor, 20 drops of pure skunk essence, and 1 pint of pure red fox urine. Fill jug the rest of the way with pure rainwater, shake well and age at least one week prior to adding to bait formula. It helps to add 4 ounces of ground muskrat or mink glands.
To beaver or fish - 1/8 oz. beaver castor 1/8 oz. muskrat musk 10 drops anise oil 1/4 oz. fish oil 1/4 oz. glycerine oil
Tracy Truman - 4 lbs bacon ends and pieces, ground into hamburger consistency 2 pounds lard 4 oz ground castor 1 pint honey
Or just order a bottle of Nite owl or dobbins bait solution !!
