Bunny Back Strap Recipe

Had a set come to life overnight when I added a Bunny Wabbit.

I have a bait making book coming in the mail. I'm not looking to go into business or replace the commercial baits. But I would like to spice up a set with something fresh of my own.

Anyone have a good "Bunny back-strap" bait recipe? Recommend any bait making books?

Re: Bunny Back Strap Recipe

i looked into it...depending on your flavors of choice the ingredient list gets extensive..some very hard to find...some you need a few drops but gotta buy a 15$ bottle..


i made up 2 gallons of bait..one with Dobbins and the other with Jamesons bait solution...


i havent gotten to use either yet...but they smell good...dobbins seems more "musky" where Jamesons seems a bit louder and skunkier..it isnt crazy loud..


a friend had a freezer go bad and they had a pile of meat in it..i had a good 100# of meat to do something with...use it with the dobbins..had CLEAN ground meat and chops and steaks..i have no idea what it is..deer..moose..caribou..no telling..it wasnt labeled..and i know theyve had all 3 in the freezer..

the Jamesons is mixed with fresh ground bobcat


cant help with homeade stuff...but, seemed easier for ME to spend the money on a bottle of solution..15-20$ makes a gallon of bait...even if you bought bait from somewhere (i bought the bobcat from mtp) you still end up with a pretty cheap gallon of meat...

i decided to do it because if i dig a hole it gets baited and i like to use a healthy serving..

Re: Bunny Back Strap Recipe

Well that answers my next question about the bait solution, thanks.

The sets that sometimes take up to 1 lb. of bait can really add up, so a self prepared bait makes more economical sense.

Re: Bunny Back Strap Recipe

Yessir....I found myself going through pint jars pretty dang quick...I needed a cheaper option...


I can't personally speak for their effectiveness...but both smell good to my nose...and both have a lot of good reviews....

Very easy to use too...

If you want to keep it simple, add some bacon grease, honey and urine.

Re: Bunny Back Strap Recipe

The best bait Ive found is the skin of a duck with some feathers on it. Its out performed deer and rabbit 5 to 1 this season for me.

Hmmmm. Duck grease does smell good. I imagine they come in licking their chops.

I guess the dogs are tired of deer liver and heart on the menu round here, they've passed up both in a dirthole for 2 weeks now. That rabbit exploded overnight on a dead set.
