Im new to the forum so let me start by saying thanks. I'll be trapping in Eastern NC this year and didnt know if anyone had any fairly simple, but effective, fox/coyote bait recipes? Beaver is easy to get and I have a ton of old bacon grease. Thanks again
One of my best coyote baits is simply tainted moose meat with sodium bensinate to stop the taint. Simple and it works, I am sure you could substatute most meat in place of moose if you cant get moose, the fella who told me about it used deer but I found a road kill moose first.
If you want to keep it real simple, you could cube the meat into 1" cubes and freeze it sandwhich size ziplock baggies and pull out a baggie or two when needed and use just as is. It will start to taint while in the dirthole and wherever else you put it out. Should work good. You could also partially taint some meat and mix with the bacon grease also.

I've used muskrat, groundhog, beaver, house cat, and venison. I've used them fresh and tainted. The only thing i've noticed is that i catch more skunks and possum with the tainted bait, especially earlier in the season. I do like a louder bait in the late season when the cold keeps the smell more subdued. I think the bacon grease would be a good additive. I use bacon grease in one of my early season canine lures.
