You ask a loaded question. Depends on time of year,trapping pressure,type of lure. I feel many use to much lure in early season and not enough in cold winter temps.

for call lures i am probably a 2...depending on the lure...something real skunky i go a bit lighter..allagash fur call for example ive done tons of sets on an ounce and still have a few sets left in the bottle...

gland lures probably 3-5 depending on the set and how "foxy" the lure is smelling...


depends on the weather too..cold/wet i will go a little heavier..nicer weather i will go lighter..


i think i have a broken sniffer though...some lures i just cannot make out much of a smell at all...believe it or not gusto is one of the lures i see noted on here for being known as strong...maybe i got a bad bottle...but it doesnt smell strong to me at all..allagash and windwalker and such smell tons stronger to my sniffer...used a few different red fox gland lures and some stunk...some smelled REAL foxy..some didnt smell like much at all...if it smells strong to me i will go lighter..

once in a while i get crazy and go so heavy i can smell the skunk a good ways away down wind LOL...when that happens i know i can use less of that particular lure..

I dont know much and only have this year as a reference but I started off the season a #3 and gradually backed off towards the end of the season to a #1. As I slacked off I started catching more yotes with less lure. I caught 21 yotes this year and most of them was with the lesser amounts. Also I seen more of digging response with the lesser amount.

With much more than a 2 on my sandwich I can't taste the bologna. grin Honestly, this is great for the new guy(me) as the only description I've really visualized before is "pea sized". So all my lures & baits have been that.

I use a #1 on lures like canine call,and go 2-3 on gland lures.I don't think I ever go more then a #2 on any stronger lure that I use in dirtholes.canine call, all I ever use is a drip or two down the hole.

I caught 72 coyotes this year using a pinto bean size clump of lure and bait, and less when using the call lures, I can't remember the numbers of the original post. This works well throughout our season, but it does'nt get as cold here as the northern states.

3 on the lure. Bait, I use at least 3 chunks of bobcat 1 inch or 2 in size in RK Predator Plus solution down a 8 or 10 inch dirthole. More bait = more digging IME. More lure = more rolling IME

I start with less than your scale starts at,maybe .5, you can always add more but its not easy to remove.With too much I think it can take too long to mellow out,too many oppossum,not enough first night catches.I have been tinkereing with no lure on set up day,I do this because I find I can set more clean traps if I leave the lure + bait home and just concentrait on the set,next day I bring the lure along and lure up without touching the set.I have also just gone back around after the steel is strung to lure.

Number 4 call lure number 6 on glandlure
Bait is tablespoon or so home made so I use a little more than the stuff I buy. Always a shot of urine I catch a few with nothing but a blind set every year.
