Re: Change Up at D/H sets
I remember the late Charles Dobbins, father of Paul Dobbins, testing lures in Virginia. I saw him make a set and when it was time to add bait, lure and/or urine, Charlie added a few drops of lure down the hole and prepared to leave. I thought maybe he ran out of urine so I offered mine. He explained whenever he tested a lure he only used the lure alone because otherwise he would not know what odor the animal was responding too, the lure or the urine. That way when he made a catch at one of his test sets he knew for sure or not it was the lure that drew the critter in.
I trap mink because I don't know any better
