Bear baiting question

hey boys all it takes is patience and a little tlc and make sure your staying till half hour after sunset always they like to come out right before its pitch black just as soon as the sun is down but there is still a bit of light don't know why but they do it all the time and sometimes we may think they're being nocturnal but they're just sitting there waiting for us to leave our stands

Bear baiting question

Have you tried hunting in the morning for them? Maybe they know something is wrong in the evening and they might be feeding first thing in the morning. I had alot of bears hanging out till right after daylight for about 45 minutes. Give that a try if you can.

Bear baiting question

Try baiting in the evenings as they seem to know once bait has been dropped you leave. How often can you get to the bait site? i mean can you go to it in the evenings and mornings? For a few days at least.?

Bear baiting question

Make sure your not wearing any calone, smoking at site, our have smoke on your cloth, Dont relive your self out of the stand, make sure your cloths havnt picked up an odar from some thing. I put my hunting colths in a plastic garbage bag with Pine bows ,this will do a very go job of covering scent. If your useing bug spray that could also cause a proplem, I use a little around the bait site the frist day I bait so they get used to it, and have found the none scented Sintastic to work the best
