Some of the Newest Trapping Supplies in our Inventory ...

Whenever discussions occur about the tools used by the pioneers to tame and settle the new America,  the steel trap is rarely acknowledged. In some respects, it is the forgotten hero. The trap enabled the individual to gather wild animals twenty-four hours a day. It provided food for the table, clothing to wear, renewable resources to barter with and a protective mechanism to not only safeguard the settlers, but their livestock as well.

In today's environment, the steel trap remains a very important tool. It is still the most effective tool to manage wildlife and most likely will be for years to come.

Trap collecting is one important way to protect and preserve an integral part to the history of America.

Volkers' Cookie Cutter is designed to make the perfect trap bed quickly and easily. You can push the cookie cutter into very soft ground or hammer it into harder ground. When hammering in, pound on the ends of the frame, not on the rebar handles. When the cutter has been seated, remove it by pulling up on the rebar handles and you will have the perfect print of just what dirt to remove for your trap bed. Removing just the right amount of dirt assists in firm bedding and reduces the amount of freeze proof dirt you need at your set which saves both time and money.

Cookie Cutter Trap Bedder (MB-550) - Volkers

This all season multi-purpose improved freeze proof bait is now more effective than ever. It is extracted from slightly tainted bobcat meat through a filtering process. Two proven calling ingredients are added to make this a liquid bait supreme. It really makes them dig to get at the bait. It is best as a stand alone bait, but it is also an excellent attractant when used for remake sets, or just to quickly fresh up a set. Use about 1/4 ounce per set and place onto a piece of sheep's wool and shove down the dirt hole. One application lasts for days. A super dirt hole bait that will change your mind about liquid baits.

Dakota Prairie - Liquid Fox & Coyote Bait (pint)

A Canine Curiosity/Call Lure that has a thick consistency and blend of highly attractive musks, beaver castor and secretions combined in a pure muskrat gland base. Not overpowering! Not mild either. The mink musk smell is evident when you first open the cap. The other underlying musk smells are very appealing and hold the animal's attention. Use all season at dirt hole, flat and walk through sets. Give this lure a try as a change up on some of your best sets.
