Medicines Or Scent Baits
Categories: STEEL TRAPS AND THE ART OF TRAPPING.
These form one of the most important requisites of the trapper's
art. A trap baited simply with the food of the
required animal, may and often will be successful, but with the
addition of the trapper's medicine judicially applied, success
is almost a certainty. These scent baits are of various kinds,
some being almost universal in their usefulness, while others are
attractive only to some particular species of animal. We give a
few of the recipes of the most valued preparations used by trappers
throughout the land. The application and use of each is fully described
in its proper place hereafter.
