For urine posts the urine will work great. If you are going to use dirt holes about anything will work. Yotes love chickens, so chicken liver works good but anthing that will stink will pull him in. Be careful with your scent. Good luck!

First thing I would recommend is to shoot them, but if you wants to trap them.




Dig a small pit.........


Place all types of "bait" into pit and cover with light earth and leaves.


Continue this for one month and then place your traps in the pit with the "bait".


Done............................Use gloves and cover scent when setting with traps.

Would gloves and cover scent be needed if he allready have the animal use to his scent from pre baiting them? His scent would be all iover the place if he pre baited for a month. I might start and do that my self. Get them comming to an area. Good idea.

The thing about scent is where it comes from. If you have shorts on or short sleeve shirts,gloves won't help much as for human odor. The reason is that scent comes from dead skin cells that fall off the body.That is why blood hounds can track what they are hunting.Watched a show on the discovery channel on it.How long does human scent actually stay around before it disapears is the question that should be thought about?I would guess no more than 24hrs and maybe less if it is cold and damp out.So scent shouldn't be that much of a concern other than keeping lure and bait scents off your traps.
Gloves help to keep food and lure smell off traps so they don't dig the trap up.Use gloves to set and take off to bait or, set trap with gloves off then put on to bait.
