Re: dying traps

if you're talking land traps, why bother rusting them to dye?
clean and wax, they will rust over time and then you can dye.
water traps (which you are not covering with dirt) need colored, either dye, dip or spray

as waylon would say,
dont go taking me seriously
cause i poked at you in fun

Re: dying traps

i don't dye my traps going in water.rust seems to blend in better with the bottom of streams and ponds.

Re: dying traps

no need to dye them now. When I get new traps I take them to the car wash and wash the oil off of them. Come home and boil them good and let them dry then wax and use. I will dye them before next season. They will be rusted perfectly after the first season of use. LB

Honesty is my only excuse.
