It's a good video and has very useful information. The one thing I'm not sure about is the wood fire. Some people say not to use wood because of the smell contamination. Let's hear what others have to say as I have way more wood than gas but have always used a gas type burner because of what I heard.

Well Trappintime, you and I have had some of this discussion before...I don't worry too much about the contamination....especially from smoke, metal objects, walking about, etc. The woods down here have burned wood all over them, pipelines and barbed wire fences cris-cross the country side and there are people most every where. If our varmints were very cautious about those odors they would starve to death. And mobodoctor did mention the advantage to using these dyed traps for coons....therefore the odor shouldn't make a lot of difference. Around here you can put a rusty trap in the slow moving slough waters and it will turn dark from the amount of tannic acid in the water. Just my opoinon on all of this.....your observance to contamination and my lack of it may be why you have gotten over 130 coyotes this season to my ONE!!!! :lol:

not sure but when my grandpa and his boild theirs they did not have gas but from the beans lol
when i do K9 traps then i wax them and that covers all oders
thats just the way it was passed down to me and it has worked for over 35 years
plus wood is back to our roots gas is bad $$$$lmao

Well I'm going to try doing it with wood on half my traps to see if there is a difference. Like you say gas prices hurt and we have free wood everywhere. Thanks

Hickory hulls will work but so will balck walnuts and pecan hulls. It all depends on how dark you want them.

Good vid mo! I used to use walnut hulls also,I also don't worry too much about smoke and such. Heck this year I didn't even boil the traps I used, as they were hanging down my basement for a couple of years so I just gave them a fresh coat of wax, must have been ok cause they caught fur. Now please don't excited I dont recommend not cleaning and boiling your traps, it's just that I knew that these traps were not contaminated as I had cleaned them before I put them up.

Sumac berries would be just the regular red sumac, right?

i use 6 to 8 big clumps to around 3 gal
i have tried about every thing out there and they last longer
the speed dip is fast but they shine up fast
log wood dye next
then black walnut
sumac i think last the longest out of these
after cleaning up all my traps this time of the year i dont want them to rust up over the storage so i use log wood dye and as they shine up i will change them out then when i have a bunch in need i will do them in sumac during season
im blessed to have over 400 traps so i dont run out of ready to go traps
