Antigo, WI - Mepps® continues to ask hunters to save their squirrel tails. The tails are used for their hand-tied, dressed hooks of their world-famous, fish-catching lures. They've been recycling squirrel tails for over half-a-century.
"Squirrels are good eating and we can reuse their tails for making the world's #1 lure," explains Mepps® Communications Director, Josh Schwartz. "Consider harvesting squirrels for this year’s hunting season."
Mepps buys fox, black, grey and red squirrel tails and will pay up to 26 cents each for tails, depending on quality and quantity. Plus, the cash value is doubled if the tails are traded for Mepps lures.
Schwartz reminds everyone, "We do not advocate harvesting of squirrels solely for their tails."
