Bacon Grease?

Does anyone use bacon grease for bait? I am collecting it for next season which will only be my second season trapping and was wondering if i should use it straight or mix it with something. I am hoping to use it as a multi-bait, fox,coyote,coon,etc.....

Tried it with marginal success. I have found that it also attracts deer (salt).

Not only deer but bear as well.

Re: Bacon Grease?

I used it and it worked fine . I think in the fridge it will last a couple years. You might try and freeze it until season.
