That stuff works pretty good. We were hunting the
other evening and a coyote worked his way about
75-yards downwind of us, smelled us and left. I
popped open a bottle of the lure put some on a
cotton ball and let it waft downwind. About three
minutes later, Mr. Coyote showed his eyes again.
Big mistake for him as I put a 6.5 Grendel round
right between his glowing eyes. Nighty night Mr.
Coyote. My hunt partner was amazed that the scent
brought the coyote back…......................I was
We use parts of jackals for various things, from
putting in cages for trapping to putting in a bottle
to hide our scent downwind when calling etc, BUT
whatever you want it for, here is how to make it.
First how to get it out of an animal, well sometimes
after you shoot a jackal or cat it will shit itself,
so keep a bottle handy, or simply push hard on each
side of the vent at the rear and see what comes out.
OR lay the cat / jackal on its back, make a very
shallow cut (don’t cut deep) and make the cut about 4
inches forwards from the vent at the back. Take out
the bladder and intestine.
Take a needle and syringe, and feel with your fingers,
locate that bladder and insert the needle and suck out
the urine. Remember this urine isn’t cat SPRAY that he
sprays out to mark territory, it will smell different.
Keeping urines and jackal waste in a bottle made into
a gland lure will give you excellent cover when
calling, placing two / three bottles downwind from you
will help hide your presence. It is worth the effort
to make your own.
HERE IS A RECEIPY I USE;
3 Jackal waste contents (INTESTINE) or
3 Jackal rectum contents or
3 Jackal bladders
Mix in with anal glands
Now, mix together in (warmed liquid) honey paste; add
in 15ml gelatine to preserve the contents. Add in raw
SEAGRO or rotten eggs. Let it ferment for a period of
8 months in a natural sealed setting, be careful to
release gas often in a plastic container.
When mixing it with the honey, throw a bottle with
honey in warm water so it’s gets into a runny liquid
and then quickly mix it in with all the other lovely
When you skin a jackal , remove that anal area – The
area of anal glands is located on each side of that
Make a deep cut all around that opening. Now, pull out
the anal glands and about 4 inches of intestines. Take
also any droppings found in that intestine. You can
remove the bladder or syringe it out. With female
jackals take the vagina as well as the reproductive
Mash it all up and place in a bottle, mix it with the
urine and a little paste. Leave this about a year to
reach a peak in stink. MAKE SURE TO REMEMBER to leave
that top a little open to breathe as gas will build up
inside that bottle.
YOU DONT want that bottle exploding near your car,
bakkie or inside your house! The smell will never go!
Dont bring any smelling things in the house.
This lure I make up, is so strong smelling that after
I put it in a thick sealed plastic bottle within 10
minutes the smell goes through the plastic, thats how
potent the smell is.
Remember to ALWAYS use rubber surgical rubber glaves
when doing this crappy job, be careful of open cuts
on your hands etc, take precautions to not get
infected. If you suddenly start getting hot and
sweating this is the first sign of a bacterial
infection, go immidiatly to the doctor.
ALSO, put it in a place that the flies cannot lay eggs
on it, and keep it in a dry area, or cover it with a
mosquito net. Prevent contamination as much as
This is an idea of location of the various innards.
Dogs and cats are pretty easy to get urine from with a
needle and syringe; you can feel with your fingers for
the bladders and insert a needle easily.
A TIP to hide your smell when calling is
to use vanilla essence and spray on yourself and
bakkie or smoke your cloths over a fire, that smoke
confuses a jackal’s nose pretty well. Rubber is
excellent and the more rubber on you and your truck
this is an old trick for a trapping lure, and this to
can be used as a scent hider, throw 12 eggs in a
bottle, let it rot and use it with a lid open.
Rotten eggs smell really bad when left in a bottle for
3 weeks, so make sure you don’t contaminate any area
or you will be sorry, the smell is intense!
RED BAIT, ROOI AAS
is possibly one of the best cage trapping lures I have
used, it works like a bomb, to get cats into cages
it’s a great tool. Also placed downwind will hide your
scent and I haven’t found it to be a problem while
predator calling, it does not spook predators at all.
It is pretty easy to make your own, well, you cant
exactly make a mess of it if you get my meaning, so
next time you kill a jackal, don’t throw it in the
bush, use the parts and use it to help you on a
upcoming hunt, try this, you will see using a scent
hider downwind really helps.
Well as you can see, the Humph also likes the smell!
This works well for cage trapping. Trying different
ideas will benefit you, if you don’t try it you will
Hope this topic helps! It surely stinks!
To end here is a funny story- I made a batch of 12
bottles of this smelly stuff, put on labels and put in
the garage, the next day 7 of the labels on the
bottles had been eaten partly off from mice, showing
you that even mice are attracted to this smell.
