This week on Trapping Across America we are looking into how to prepare traps at the end or the beginning of the trapping season. So if you new to trapping or have only used one trap prep method for years, we hope some of the info we go into tonight will help you out or maybe get you thinking about why you dye, wax, paint or dip your traps. To me the reason we treat or traps is to keep them working, strong and in good shape. We also cover how or what you do with trapping lure, bait, scent, fish oil and urine at the end of the year. How do you keep fresh urine fresh. How long does lure of bait last? Sun and heat are the enemy!
