I have a friend,well- friends that live over in Skanateles Falls, not too far from you. Used to live in Auburn,myself , in the late 70's.
I wonder if you travel to the Adirondack Mountains....i see your name seems to be short for 'adirondack' bear =adk...bear, i could be wrong tho.. we found our first bear-sign of this spring yesterday, i am excited. i respect them,though we become familar with several as we live in the deep woods.
I have a system I use in Whitetail hunting during the rut that seems to work for me. When I make a mock scrape in the area I wish to hunt I will place a couple of 35mm
film canisters (film removed of course) in the scrape after I have cleared out all leaves and other debris. The film canisters are filled with cotton balls and saturated with doe in heat urine. This keeps the urine from soaking in the ground and can be refreshed on each trip if needed. I will also use the tarsal gland of the buck...
