I am planning this on another thread and thought i'd get the marten trappers opinion on it. I am using a Contact eye dropper container with wolf urine to spray my p-posts sets and i thought if i mixed up Anise oil and Pro-glycol in a Dropper i can spray above my sets and move on to the next set. fast easy and can work in cold weather. Has anyone used a Contact Eye dropper for lure? I put water in and it can really spay out depending on pressure you apply. Plus i keep them under my snowmachine hood so they hold up in the cold better. If i get a better mix for cold weather i can jus keep it within reach grab/spray, move on...

I put most of my lures in squirt bottles. Usually old mustard jugs or the 4 ounce saline bottles from contact lens solution. Works fine. If you can keep the urine warm there's no reason to cut it with glycol. They'll smell it just fine.

Anise oil is a component of many lures and is itself attractive to many animals. Many marten trappers in BC use a lure produced by a BC trapper in which the main ingredients are raspberry jam and anise. I quite often also use successfully a mix of beaver castor and anise for both marten and fisher.

My late gramps used to make up some, anise mix. I used it for bears and had great results. White, i think i wanna cut it because most of the time i have a hard time keeping it in liquid form. I have personally never mixed up stuff but i am wanting to give it a try. See how it works out i guess. I also have some castor saved and put away so might mix some up for cats and my wolverine sets.

Btw i added some commercial urine to a few of the trash bags of moosehide/moose guts that are rolled up and been cooking in trash bags since sept. Thought i'd better give that a try. (Alaska Wolf Trapping Manual).

Never really had much luck with them. Dobbins, Cavens, and Lennons on the other hand have been great when used as intended.

I really like Hawbakers #1 mink lure for mink and other things but the marten lure never did much for me

I had very good luck with #800 back when I was targeting foxes.

I have tried the hawbakers marten lure but it seems to be more of a food lure and really isn't very loud, maybe if setting right on sign, but I prefer a LDC when targeting marten.

I tried Hawbakers marten lure last year, it didn't hold up well in the cold, I couldn't smell it.

I don't think there is any commercial marten lure worth buying. I have learned that skunk is a base and it is something I don't want to have caps to unscrew and waste time. Lure is made and is in squirt bottles like White said. Stop machine, grab squirt bottle, flip top on pole, squirt, make sure flip top is down and zoom away. Very little wasted time. If it can't squirt out of a bottle, it isn't going to be used by me for marten.
