Baits and lures are an important factor in any wildlife trapping situation. Without the correct enticement for your target animal, your trapping experience will be fraught with failure.
Baits: are generally solid materials used to entice an animal into the trap. They make the animal think there is food available.
Lures: are generally liquid materials and can stimulate wildlife activity through the mating impulse, food impulse or territorial impulse.
