Perrrfect - A very unusual type of food call lure developed for situations where an individual has trouble stopping cats and working a set. Freezing temperatures or below will not affect the calling power of this stretcher filling lure. $14.00/2 oz; $24.00/4 oz; $80.00/pint

Range Call - The main user of this scent is the U.S. Government. I do not recommend this product for inexperienced trappers!

John Pingley's Background

I was born and raised in Jacksonburg, WV.  I began trapping at the age of 12, inspired by the stories of Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett.  This came in handy when we found that a fox was getting into the chicken coop.  Trapping has been a passion for me since the beginning.

I have 40+ years of experience trapping Coyotes, Beaver, Red Fox, Grey Fox, Muskrat, Mink, Pine Marten, River Otter, Bobcat, Nutria and Raccoon in 11 states - Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Vermont, North Carolina, Mississippi, Arkansas and Virginia. I was employed from fall of 1997 to August 2007 with USDA Wildlife Service in West Virginia resolving Coyote depredation in livestock, Wildlife disease threats, and working on the Raccoon rabies program. I’ve done damage control trapping in Arkansas, Colorado, Mississippi, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Wyoming.

I operate Duke & Jack Predator Control and John Pingley Farms which I started in 2007. After a life changing automobile accident in August 2011, with the blessing of the good lord, John Pingley Botanical and Furs was started in 2014, dealing in legal Medicinal Plants, Herbs and Furs. I have developed and used my own brand of lures for years (Duke & Jack Predator Control Lures).  In 2013, Neil Olson, who is a great friend, suggested I expand the marketing of my lures.  I began selling them to the public for the first time at the New England Trappers Weekend in 2014.  I now attend every year. 

I am a lifetime member of the NRA and WVTA (Past President).  I am also a member of the FTA, NTA, WV Farm Bureau and WV Cattleman’s Association.

I thank Dirk Miller for years of excellent products and service. Dirk’s lures have fascinated me for years.  Dirk gifted me a great honor to take over High Plains Professional Lures. I have some big shoes to fill.  

I am a well-known polite man who believes in providing only high-quality products and service.  

I am looking forward to serving everyone.

Elnora Morgan Pingley

Elnora had a great love for the outdoors. Her outdoor activities included farming, raising a large vegetable garden from which she did home canning, flower gardening, hunting, fishing, trapping, primitive camping, and digging ginseng, goldenseal and other roots. She lived off the land and usually only went to the grocery store once a month for the bare necessities. 

She started hunting, trapping and fishing in West Virginia when she was in her early 50’s with her sons, John, Jerry and Perry. Along with the enjoyment, she did this so she could spend time with them. Later on, she hunted, fished and trapped with her grandsons, William, Eric and Casey. When she and her sons started trapping, she always helped put up the fur. She would make sure all the holes were sewed and the fur cleaned to look its best when selling it. She always wanted to know why some furs did not grade as well as others. No matter what grade of fur, she always made it look good.

In 1990, she started trapping in Colorado and Wyoming, where she trapped Red Fox, Raccoons, Beavers, Coyotes, Martens, Bobcats, Muskrats and Minks. In Wyoming, she trapped a Silver Fox and in Colorado, she trapped her first Bobcat, which she had mounted. She was always ready to go west in late September for the start of trapping season.  

Elnora attended both national and state trapping conventions. She camped at trapping conventions where she cooked breakfast and supper for family and sometimes as many as 30 friends. She always made sure there was enough fresh caught trout for one evening’s meal.

She also attended Neil Olson’s trapping conventions in Hughesville, Pennsylvania and the New England Trappers Weekend in Bethel, Maine. (Neil has a picture in his fur shed of Ma Pingley from the first year she attended). She enjoyed the seminars and talking about trapping with fellow trappers.  She bought the first two bottles of Beaver lure that Charlie Dobbins sold. She asked, “Does this work?” Charlie told her it did for him. That was the beginning of a great friendship. At the conventions, she could be found sitting at Charlie’s booth, talking about trapping.

Elnora was a member of the WVTA and NTA. She was very supportive of issues concerning hunting, trapping and farming because it was her way of life. She was always making phone calls and writing letters to legislators to support trapping laws.
