Trapping k-9 just wondering how much in quantity terms in considered too much lure/gland/bait per dirthole, flat, urine post. Ive been using some of the thick gland Cavens (minnesota red)and (canine force)and its a pretty thick paste. All i can seem to catch is an endless supply of grinners in these sets.
I think im gonna buy some Night owl seems so many people on here use it.
As far as bait goes, a chunk the size of a walnut or about a teaspoon size of paste bait. For lure, I use what will stick on a small twig the size of a wooden matchstick or about a lima bean size for paste lures. For urine, when I use it, just a small squirt as K-9's are like dogs and don't empty their bladders, just mark for the most part. Too much lure will certainly shy K-9's away or cause them to roll in the set at times and we all know that grinners & skunks are attracted to everything. To try and avoid some of the less desirable critters, move your sets away from the hedgerows and brushy areas a few feet and the numbers of K-9's should go up with skunks & 'possums down.

You're using good lures now, NO'S are great as well but if your having problems catching fox it probably isn't the lure you're using. Population and location are the keys, without those two the best lure won't produce. Guys starting out right now you need to put the traps down and walk the farms you're on and look at the tracks and look for the travel routes and such and pick your locations. No tracks and there are no animals. Old snow right now should give many clues, I walk many of my areas this time of year on the weekends (when I don;t have time to run sets but a couple hours to walk my areas) and you'll learn the keys to location. Fox aren't tough at all, you put a set with those lures in the right location you'll take them.
