Hello Bear Hunters,
We finally got a kill permit for central Wisconsin so we set up some baits. We were using bread and bakery soaked with chocolate syrup, maple syrup, and a fruit jelly mix. The bait was getting hit about 3 times a week with one set of pad prints over 7". We just recently found a source for chocolate covered cherries so we picked up a barrel of them along with a barrel of crushed ice cream cones. Since we added this to the baits they have not been hit in 2 weeks. I was wondering if anyone new if too much chocolate would bother a bear. I am also wondering if it may be a blueberrie crop pulling them away? and if so will they remember the baits and come back.
