Beginner questions

I am just getting into trapping and had a few questions.

1. Do DP's need dyed and waxed to use them?
2. I have heard of guys saying pork scraps from pig roasts make great bait for fox/coyotes. What needs to be done to make it into bait and is it susposed to be a liqiud? Can other meat scraps be used too if they are cooked or uncooked?
Just wondering and thanks in advance for helping to point me in the right direction

Re: Beginner questions

1. DP's do not need died or waxed, but can be. You could also spray paint them, black, brown, or white to draw attention. After a catch though, all the paint or dye will come off. I don't do anything to mine.
2. Cooncrazy hit this one on the head.

Re: Beginner questions

on my DP's i use a heavy coat of grey primer, easier to clean them out, and i was getting nasty rust inside them. that's not a big problem but it will help them last longer.
