Bladder Collected Urine Pictorial Tutorial

This is a tutorial my daughter and I did back in 2009. I put it back up to answer Bowsnbucks question about collecting urine (on another thread).

We are using a red fox for this demonstration.

Start with the skinned carcass still hanging on the gambrel.






Make an incision on the center of the belly. Be careful, if the bladder is full it will be just under the surface, make a very shallow cut.






Spread the incision open and pull the hopefully full bladder outside the body cavity.






This is what an empty bladder looks like.






We use a plastic pint bottle and a small plastic funnel. With plastic you don't have to worry about dulling your knife on metal or contaminating urine with the rust that will form on a metal one.






Place the bladder (still attached and intact) in the funnel.






Then stick it with your knife.









It is the fastest, cleanest way we have found to remove urine from caught fox.

What is the preferred temperature to store fresh urine?

I don't think it matters. Mine stays in the shed all year out of direct sunlight and still works fine

Same here, I just keep left over urine in the shed, not refrigerated, until the next season.

Re: Bladder Collected Urine Pictorial Tutorial

I also just keep my bladder collected bottles at whatever the room temp becomes in summer, and the pee still smells like fox pee should smell. I had a gallon and less some of Bob Wendt fox pee that I forgot about, was in my tool container thing in my truck bed for 2 years! I pulled it out, opened it up and...it smelled like good ol fox pee.

Oh yeah I have a tiny bit of grey fox pee and it still smells like...good ol grey fox pee! Plus some red vixen in heat pee. All bladder collected.

Re: Bladder Collected Urine Pictorial Tutorial

I had a gallon of Fox Hollow that I bought from somebody a few years ago. It was obviously very old, had a heavy ammonia smell to it. Don't know how old urine has to be to get that way, nearly all of mine is used up/replaced with fresh stuff within two years.

Eh...wot?
