Once a week baiting is just right !!
u do not want to spook the bear , or scare it,, the more u go there the more contact with the bear and this will bother the bear a lot and make the bear either go nocturnal or worse abandon the site ..
if u wanna bait once a week ( which is recommended ) u should make sure u have plenty of food to last the whole week, so that's at least 250lbs of food, the more the better since there is 2 bears u should have plenty of food for both and who knows u may endup with more bears by the season opener, now that u got those bears back u should do everything u could to keep them there and to do so u need plenty of food !!
make sure u bait early morning,, not later then 1 oclock the most , around 10 -11 would be great,,it will take 6 hours for ur fresh smell to die from ur site,so the last time u should be near ur site is 6 hours before sunset,, by doing this the bear will come feed 1 hour before sunset which will give u good one hour to get this bear before dark..
give the bears time to leave the site without been spooked by u, sing or yell on ur way there so u don't spook them ( only when delivering food ) stalk when u come to hunt (more about this later),, do not invade their bedding because they picked this site for bedding believing it's a secure site , u take that security from them they are gonna leave for few weeks before they come back or worse never come back,, do not disturb them until ur last day of hunting this way u know u got nothing to lose .make sure ur site is ready for the hunt, like adding boughs to ur stand , make it invisible and make sure u r comfortable up there so u can last the long hours waiting for the bear to come feed, if ur site is not ready do what u gotta do now , this is the perfect time to fix anything that need to be fixed, don't wait for later , by doing it now everything will be back to normal by the season opener.
make sure u make a soft trail and stop driving ur atv or truck to the site, use sled to deliver baits from now on,, a sled will also help soften the trail so when u are ready for hunting u will walk on it un-detected , you muist make the soft trail to use it when delivering baits and also for the season opener ,,!! if u make noise before u go on ur stand the bears will not come. I can provide more info regarding this if u want . just let me know.
if u don't know what to do or what to wear on ur opening day let me know , do not ruin ur chance , nothing wrong with asking , that's how u become better !!
for baiting i'd say continue using what u been using,u can add grain and fruit on top of what u been using , apples are greats!!
let me know ahead of ur opening day to give u a treat that u can use to lure them fast .
go buy high rubber boots at least knee high and soak them in water for at least 3 weeks to get rid of the rubber smell and then air them out for another 2 weeks, by the season opener all stinky weird smell will be gone .. u have no idea how imprtant rubber boots are when hunting bears !! i will explain this to u later ,, also buy scentless soap . when hunting season finally open i will explain everything u need to know to get on ur stand and trick this wise bear .
if u know all the tricks for bear hunting that's good if not let me know,, there is few things u need to know and do while hunting these smart animals .
I will draw a site for u with the soft trail to use when delivering baits and when coming for the hunt,, make sure u use the trail every saturday so by the season opener it will be soft enough for u to come un-detected !!
