This is the nail i've trapped bears for many years, i really don't have to scout for bears. I know where to get them every year, i've set snares in this area for many years and can still catch bears in the same area today. There is lots of ochard in this area which attracts the bears. I get a bear every year i set the snare. There is no need to prebait just set the snare and within a week the bear is there. This is all i have ever done and almost every year garented to have ma bear. The best bait that i have found is tanted beef.
