Re: Smells that make you love trapping
Mink musk from a catch, lingering at the site.
Skunk odor ( though no one else likes it around me)
A good stinky fox catch circle. Best when you have those males with that skunky stuff.
Yes, me too on the smell of dried coyotes- I LOVE that smell! Also a fur shed full of dried foxes. The first trapper I ever met caught about 100 that season and had them all in his fur shed, and that place smelled great.
The general smell of grey foxes.
What's hilarious with me lately is I am sensitive to certain smells, like perfumes and my mother's awful air fresheners, and having general nausea issues, but I can spend hours working on smelly fox and coyote hides and no issues with that at all. Sometimes when I am feeling queasy I will sniff a good whiff of certain lures, and feel better right away. LOL
