Default Your favourite lures (scent) or otherwise.

A few threads have me thinking about what others use as their go to lure

“Dam Marten “ from Dam Beaver Supplies has been my best producing marten lure with some fisher as well
“ Marten Magic” from Barnes was extremely skunky and lasted a really long time. I went from 0 fishers in 3 weeks to 3 fishers in 1 week when I switched to this.... unfortunately no Marten on this lure??

What’s your go to ?

Also :
-Lynx?
-Mink?
-K-9?

Thanks.

PS. Home recipes , additives or even non scent lures welcome

Vaseline melted with a bottle of skunk essence. I add some fish oil as well to thin it out a bit. Found it works just as good as any store bought and lasts wayyyy longer as you get more for less money.

Powder River for Lynx but costs way too much so I am trying the rotted lynx guts in a bucket but seeing limited results. Caught more fox and coyotes in my lynx pens than lynx lol .....

Weasels and mink I catch in my Marten boxes with my Vaseline and Skunk mix.

Wolves. Rotted half a beaver in a bit of water all summer. Throw in a burlap sack to hang by a nail in the center of my snares and throw some bait out for the ravens to make racket and if you place your snares well enough the wolves circle and get caught.

How thin is thin?

Still pliable at -30? The Barnes Marten magic gets a bit too hard. I prefer paste that only thickens when cold. Not sets up.
