Check back in about 3 days and I find the answer for you. Also check in victor traps and sleepy creek traps. They shoud have the die on there for you. Anyone of them should be good. Do you wax your traps too?

I have used Andy's speed dip with good results in the past but you need to let em air out for a good month or two before setting. Any more I have gone back to boiling them in walnut hulls and waxing.

Wax is used so they cant smell your scent. As long as you keep your scent off the trap, youll be fine. Wear rubber gloves and keep your traps separate from other traps. Ex. Dont mix your fox traps with yote traps. Different smells can mix together, you dont want that. Wax will also let the trap go off a litte faster. I use rubber jaws on my traps, because I relocate my fox and yots. Have no problems whatsoever.
