nmn, there is an old Indian saying
a tree fell in the woods
The eagle saw it
The deer heard it
The bear smelled it
I'm going up to check my baits this week end hopefully it's been hit I'm sure it has, tracks all over the place. Usually on the second weekend I put as much bait out as I can. If I get some good pictures I'll post them. Last year I had a big problem with racoons getting into bait I don't know if that was good or bad the bears seemed to be getting finicky. From the the heat and rain it turned just nasty.

baiting

I just found this website and i love it.
i have been BB hunting for 5 years and have 4 BB's
the first year i baited i never saw one the whole season. I asked a friend what he uses to get his every year and he used the same bait as me.
bread spread on the ground with fryer grease poured all over it.
the only difference was he used Annis in a spray bottle.
I have a 1 quart spray bottle with Annisette from the local liqour store.
I buy Annis at the local food store and add 1 bottle of that to the fifth of annisette. I spray 3 times...left,straight and right every 10 mins.
that is what i was told to do and i have gotten a Bear every year since.
It seems the Annis overwhelms the human scent and that is all they can smell while i smoke in my treestand. I carry 2 one gallon milkjugs into the bait every day.one with grease and the other with tablescraps topped off with dog or cat food. and a loaf of bread. I bait every day at 2pm when i go into my bait.
i am 400 feet from a lightly used dirt road and it seeems that after the first vehicle has gone by then the Bear think that i have left and begin to work their way in.. after reading some of these post i am going to add a pack of rasberry jello to my routine. Thanks Guys for all of this interesting reading.
I LOVE MY BEAR HUNTING. Thumbs up
