It is the small green looking sac connected to the liver. It will be right up tight to the liver. Most of the time its no bigger than a quarter around.

Wannab, if you were to take the liver out, there is a top side and the underside. The top is some what domed and the underside is more flat if held out even. There should be a couple folds that almost seem separated but are not. Search the under side of the liver closer to the edge where the two segments meet. You cannot mistake it. About the size of half your pinky finger but varies. The color can seem dark or greenish. When you harvest it cut it loose or pull it loose deeper into the liver then you might think or it will burst or run out on you and waste it.

I should have asked this question before trying to harvest one, I looked and looked for it. The thing I put in the container obviously was not the gallbladder, the real one went for a ride in a large truck today. Oh well, live and learn. I'm going to search the archives and try to find some of your lure recipes, and give it a shot.

This should help you out. This isn't a cat gall bladder, it is a yote, but it is in the same location and has the same look. Right in the middle of the liver. :wink:

Thank you Richard, that helps a lot. I sure didn see anything that looked like that, of course I did not know what I was looking for, or where to really look for it.

That one was a little light in color, some are a darker green. For a yote that one was a little small. I just about cut it out and remembered at the last second you was needing a pic of one, so I went to the house and got the camera. I figured that would help. :wink:

Alright I'll bite.......what's the point of harvesting the gall bladder off critters? Does it have value as a Bears gall bladder to the Asians?

The gall bladder has enzymes within it that help break down the glands when you make gland lure. It just gives it a better more natural gland smell to the lure than if you do not include it.

Nick Wyshinski says the gall bladder carries a strong scent of the animal and should be included in the gland lure. I have to say I do believe he is right. Done both with and without and i much prefer with it. Plus for other reasons cat man stated.

WCS, I am going t o attempt to make some home made gland lure, and read where you want to include the gallbladder in it. I have never looked for, or seen one so I did not know what to look for. Amak has posed a couple of time where he and Cat Man Jr make their own lure using the glands and gallbladder, I wanted to try it.
