fox urine is about as close to permanent as you can get in vehicle upholstery.
Cool! What about that concentrated deer type urine they use in fly traps?? Now you've got me thinking...lol!

I wasn't even thinking about a car....just assumed the thieves would carry the loot to a domicile. Hell, they probably drive newer cars than I have.

Wow.....but somehow the stuff needs to be released when the box is opened. If the box has any odor, they'll just toss it. Where in the world do you get fox urine??? You don't wanna know the mental picture I have of that...lol! I'm sure it's synthetic....

Man, I'd pay good money of a vid where those miscreants opened a package and were doused with that smell!

Most every hunting supply store sells various scents to hide the human odor so deer will not be frightened. To to cabelas or your local rural general/hunting/hardware store. If they sell hunting licenses, ammo, and other gear they will have fox urine.

Yeah and I probably used to know that in my 20's when I was still hunting. I never used anything like that though........

I know of a guy who used Fox urine to get back at a jerk one time. He used a hypodermic needle to inject it into the car though the window seal. About 3 wks later, the guy sold the car!! I've got 2 bottles of fox urine, bad, bad stuff, its sealed with a large wax seal on the lid. You don't mess with that kind of ''stuff'', its deadly, lol.

I'm not sure I would want to bag any animal dumb enough to be attracted to skunk juice. And having watched the glitter bomb video a while ago, I admire the work Mark Rober put into designing and making this device. Note that some of the reactions posted in the original video were staged, but not the device. Too, making any device that causes real harm is illegal and can have unintended consequences. Recently there was an article in the paper about a Maine man who was shot by his own gun which had been rigged to go off if his door was opened. He was 65 and evidently forgot about the booby trap and opened the door. Getting old is rough, especially as your memory slips.

Many years ago, while in school, an acquaintance gave me (and a friend) a 2 oz bottle of benzyl mercaptan. This is the purified liquid that is the active smell in the fluid your average skunk sprays. I hung it outside my dorm room for a couple of weeks, but the vapor pressure is so high, the smell eventually penetrated the leaky window. My roommate took it to another guy who had requested it, and in the subsequent excitement, the bottle was broken in a stairway. This stuff is not to be trifled with, believe me!

There's a whole Youtube series from a lawyer about home defense and WHY it is illegal to hook up a deadly device set to thwart criminals and robbers in your home, vacation cabin etc. You don't even have to be there....if someone gets harmed/killed by a device you set up, you're going up for murder or attempted murder, period. The statutes are clear on this and have been tested over and over.

Hey, if they trip on your steps walking up to your house, you need liability insurance to cover yourself. But we are drifting far afield in this thread. So, sprinkle some glitter and/or fox urine on your front walk leading up to those steps.....that brings this back into the fold for this thread....:lol:

They are not attracted to it, it just covers the hunters scent.

That's why I didn't get into the name of the lawyer and the series....it wanders too far from this thread. Point being that you can't knowingly rig something that will do severe bodily harm or contribute to someone's death.

You gotta remember from a criminal's perspective, they never admit to doing anything wrong. If they jack your stuff, it's because YOU allowed them to do it. They'll take any avenue a lawyer would offer them if it shifts blame to someone else. Their only concern is how the cops treat them and how the prison treats them while they are incarcerated. It's NEVER about what they did to get incarcerated in the first place. My meth doing/dealing son brought me into this whole grungy world of miscreants, while I tried to save his life.
