Coon, Muskrat, and Mink Home Made Lure Recipes?????

Looking to use a base of vaseline... Wondering if you all could post some ideas of scents that would attract these animals and not dogs....

Thanks,
Jack

If you target these critters in the water, you shouldn't have a problem with dogs. Muskrat glands and meat ground up and mixed with a bit of glycerin and preservative make a good mink lure, not sure how you would incorporate that into the vasaline???maybe by reducing and mixing? Anise oil, or any fish oil product will work well for coon. Never used bait or lure for muskrats...sorry.

The New Brunswick Trappers and Fur Takers Federation site used to have a page with some good recipes, but it's gone..Wish I printed it out.

i don't know how it is down there but the only thing i use is fresh salmon. well kinda i just save all my scraps and immedialty freeze them from my fishing trips in the summer i find that mink hate tainted bait. I do use salmon oil though that i get from MTP and i just make a line of it starting behind my trap, over the trap then right to the bait. I've watched them and they sniff the oil all the way to the bait and step right in the trap with is great to actually see it work. No trappers use mink lure here and i've tried a bunch with no resualts the salmon and salmon oil always gets them so if there is a good mink lure out ther i havent found it and i've used alot. thats just what i've found and i usually do pretty good right around 50-100 a year.

I,ve always just used fresh muskrat meat in pockets. Works great for all 3. If you want to spice it up a little, throw in some weasel meat or fox lure. For muskrat and coon slice some apples and put in a few drops of speariment.
