Place 2 inches of glycerine into a clean gallon jar. Glycerine, which acts as a preservative and antifreeze, makes the lure last longer in wet weather.
Add equal parts of sun-rendered fish oil and rotten eggs (see recipe below) to within 1 inch of the shoulder of the jar.
To this base mixture, add:
20 drops of pure skunk essence
3 heaping tablespoons of beaver castor
3 teaspoons of tonquin musk.
Stir well. Place a lid loosely on the jar so that gas can escape. Put the jar in a cool dark place for six to eight weeks. From time to time shake well. At first the ingredients will separate, but after a few weeks they will bond together. The end product is rather thick, similar to a thin paste.

hope this helps

Around here I just use dog food. I live in a real citified area so they're used to stealing food from fido.

Save all your duck carcasses in a bucket, put a piece of rope in with an end sticking out, when it gets cold out fill the bucket with water, when your ready to put it out let it thaw enough to get the block out of the bucket and hang it low in a tree.
They can't drag it off and will keep coming to it untill gone.

From what i have noticed that brings in the coyotes is fish. When i got fishing i freeze a bucket of them and throw out a big ice chunk for a few days and i will get results that night most of the time.

Never done much baiting... We've put a bucket of deer guts out before to get them conditioned to coming into the area:


Dog or cat food will attract plenty of skunks around here. I'll have to give that a shot in the field some time. Fish, too... never tried that.
