Evaluation of Two Lures for Furbearer Scent-station Surveys

Two odor attractants, Carman's Distant Canine Call (CDCC) and W-U lure, were monitored simultaneously at scent-station transects in 5 units of the Big Thicket National Preserve, Texas. We examined transects for furbearer tracks for 3 consecutive days quarterly from January 1987 through March 1988. Significantly (X2 = 26.9, df = 1, P < 0.01) greater numbers of furbearers were attracted to scent stations with CDCC than to those with W-U lure. We recommend CDCC over W-U lure for attracting furbearers to scent stations in Southeastern pine habitats.
