I'm just about to get released from the back Dr and am wanting to try trapping a few bobcats.  I am wanting to get some advise on the lure and baits that everyone is using to catch bobcats.  I really appreciate any info ya'll might be able to give on lures and baits.  I haven't been able to do much since I fell and am so ready to get out and trap!

Thanks

good talking to you the other day doug and proud to see your making improvements.

for those that don't know doug had a fall from somewhere around 20' from a deerstand, and it busted him up pretty bad.

I hope you don't mind me putting it out there but were all proud your doing better.

on the bobcat lure I like dobbins purrfect, cavens feline fix, and hawbakers wildcat 1 and 2
I use some change up lures but these are used more than any for me.

Thanks for the info.  TL pm me your number.  My last phone is at the bottom of Greer's and I lost all my contacts.  Went to secure the boat before deer season and went for an unexpected swim.  KKAC I don't mind anyone knowin that I fell if it makes everyone remember their harness!  25 ft is a long ways down and gravity always wins!  KKAC I'll call you soon to get some lure.  Thanks for the info and I appreciate any more you all my have.

It's hard to beat a big hole dirt hole set with a big chunck of beaver with some good castor lure in there with it or if you can score on nice road kill rabbit then put that in there. Thank the Lord that fall didn't put you out of the trapping business.

So, if RK rabbits will work, what about RK squirrels? I never see anything about using squirrels.

There is a gray line when using rabbit or even squirrels for bait. Road kill or not it may fall under wonton waste. It may have to depend on the Game warden and his view on edible portion and proof that it was RK.
I would look into it more before I had to pay a ticket

Good idea. They never seem to pass up on an opportunity to write a ticket!

Let me make what I said a little more clear. If I use rabbit or squirrel  (and I do) for bait I use the parts that are not edible. The hide down a hole covered with a little grass makes a great lure holder, or even a tail hung 20 feet a way makes a even greater eye candy for a cat. Even the inedible parts like bone or innards are good as bait.  There is no way that I could tell anyone to use road kill game animals for bait and cost them a ticket knowing there is a rule on not using it. The gray area is proving to a warden that it was road kill and how bad they wonted to write you a ticket. there is no rule about using beaver, bobcat ect. for bait.
