Draw Baits and Attracters
Large draw baits, such as a carcass of a deer, cow, sheep, etc. will work to
bring animals into your trapping area. Such furbearers as canines, cats, and
badgers readily feed on these baits until they are used up. By North Dakota
law traps can not be placed within 25 ft. of any exposed bait that weighs more
than 1 lb. to avoid catching non-target species particularly predatory birds.
Manufactured lures and baits are available for use at the set to draw the
animals into your traps as they come to feed on the big baits.
