Ever use blood as bait ? A buddy of mine owns a butchershop and has offered a little blood if we want it.

Whenever I have a live rat' in the trap, I tap him on the head and let the blood trickle all on the bank. Good call for mink. I'd definitely try it.

Used a trail of chicken blood to take a nice mink once. Don't know why I have not used it again. Oh yea, don't have chickens now. Tom

I was going to say what Asa said. The blood that is left in the container after purchasing chicken livers should be good for weasel. A pint of livers leaves a lot of blood in the container.

When I trap rats in the fall I put the skinned carcasses in plastic ice cream containers I saved in summer. I can tightly cram about 5 rat carcasses in one container. Then I freeze until I can cut the carcasses up for weasel bait. Anyway, lots of muskrat blood pools at the bottom as the critters thaw. I pour it off into plastic containers (sqeeze bottles) and mix with a 1 to 6 mixture of glycerine and keep refrigerated until I use them to freshen up bait in the weasel boxes.
and of course I also smear Asa's weasel lure on the outside of the entrance hole.

Lab, better grab you a pail and start runnin' to your buddy's then... Back in the late 70's and early 80's , I would go to a slaughter house and get cattle blood by the 5 gallon pail full. I would use it to pre-bait with down a dirtole and when I would come back it would look as if an M-80 went off down in that hole! I would also pour some on a rock or on the ground and put a rock on top...sure got a lot of reaction from the foxes...(we didn't have coyotes here at the time). I took more foxes than anyone in my county for over a decade....that was just one of my secrets!

Okay, blood will be on the line this yr. We thought it would be the perfect lure, maybe we'll give it a test run with the trail cam on it. Let you know how it does.

I also had a buddy that had a Slaughter house,. and I always had fresh blood when I needed it, and when I would kill a deer I always had a container to get the blood that would always be in the belly cavity, and just use it in the dirt hole. works good on mostly everything. I would even soak a sponge and use the sponge in the dirt hole. But these Western Critters are lots different than The Eastern Ones. Yancy

I always liked the "jelled" stuff but the liquid always soaks in better!
