making bait

was going to try making my own bait this year with tainted deer meat I have about 2 pounds of deer burger that is going to go bad an I don't want to waste it and figured it would make some good bait to try but im not sure about how to taint it I have never do it before.

From September to April my world revolves around hunting the rest is preseason.

Re: making bait

Set it in a cool spot out of the sun in a jar with cheese cloth over it held in place with a rubber band. Leave it there till it reaches close to the desired taint. In this weather probably 5 days or so I would guess, I've always went by nose. Add sodium benzoate or methyl paraben to manufactures specs. It takes a couple days for the preservative to take full affect. Once it's stable put it in a sealed jar and store out of the sun. You can spice it up with different glands, castor, fish oil etc. A simple way to spike it is add 1 oz. of Hawbakers widow maker 800 to the pound. If you don't have cheese cloth set a garbage can or bucket over the jar with a weight on top so the neighbors dog don't knock it over. Down wind of the house will keep the wife happy as well.
