Well after all the mental anguish my other bait caused me (see how big post) my mind was made up for me. My back up bait has a monster coming in. The only problem is that he is coming in at night due to my father in law only being able to bait at 5pm. I am going up for a week and a half before the season to bait only in the morning and add some treats to convince him to show up during the day. Just thought you guys would like to see. the pics arent the best because I had to lighten them.

Ive been baiting here for 3 weeks now for the first two weeks it was just a little bear. Now this one and another that I guess around 200# have showed up. It is actually my father in laws deer stand and for the last 3 years he has had bear randomly eating his deer corn, so it is kind of an established site. Do you think that 1 1/2 weeks of baiting during the day and lesser quantity is enought to get him coming in during the day regularly? Any other hints to get him coming in, we cant use honey or meat for bait or scent. Thanks in advance Brandon
P.S. this is now my primary bait

Definetly looks bigger than the bears in your other pict's. How heavy? Cannot tell with these photos, you will have to put a bullet in him and get us a good close up photo Yes

i'd say add more baits ..
i also recommend u do something to forces these bears to come in daylight .
so no meat and no honey... what are u allowed to use ?
raspberry? if so mix it with water until it's almost like liquid and spray it on bread and spread it in the crib. if that's not legal then go with sugar mixed with water and pour it in a 2 litre pepsi bottle hanged upside down and has a small hole in the middle of the lid and let the thick liquid drop on a log about 10 drop a minute.

i am just not sure what u can use and what not ,, give me some ideas !

What exactly is it that will make them come in during the day hotmoon. Ive switched to morning baiting and the hits have been more sporadic. I put the camera back on this bait today to see what is going on. Ive added larger quantities of sweets like chocolate and donuts also. I can use anything except meat and honey. Also all bait other than scent must be in a hole in the ground. Ive statrted spreading some anise goop around too. Any other hints?

take a flash light or light sticks and a radio and hang it near ur site the first night and hide it or take it with u in the morning repeat for 3-4 nights , if that didn't work then u need to be more aggressive and do the following :

get a large box of cardboard, draw a human outline and cut the cardboard to look exactly like a human ( should be the size of human as well ) and dress the dummy with one of ur stinky T-SHIRT and hook it to a rope and hang it from a tree branch almost touching the ground,, we need the dummy to swing in the air so it will look like it's moving, ( make sure u hang it in a place near the bait where bears can see it from a distance,, we don't want the bears to see it within few feet and jump 20,000 thousand feet in the air and never come back,, but don't worry the radio will prevent them from coming that close, but let's be on the safe side here and make sure they see it way before they get this close to it ), and then hang a radio from the neck and also a flash ligh or light stick and leave it at ur site all night for few nights or as long it gona takes to change the nocturnal behavoir of these bears, make sure u don't leave it there during the day,,so u need to go back early morning and bring it with u ,, this should do the trick and force these bears to come in daylight .
don't do the cardboard trick first or u might scare the #$%$# out of these bears .
when u go the next day to remove the cardboard and the light and radio , spray anise , liquid smoke and all the goodies around ur bait and on trees and leave.. do this everytime bears hit ur site at night ,
if u can do honey burn then do the long slow one,, the one u don't need fire . or u can do the normal honey burn and leave.
get dozen of sardine cans and smash them to small pieces ( save the juice )hang them in a burlap bag near ur site,, the smell is disgusting ,,then put the sardine juice in a psray bottle and spray ur site with it .
if u cannot do honey burn because honey is still ilegal to use then use raspberry syrups mixed with sugar,, or u can use sugar alone,, the smell of burned sugar will attrack anything including u Thumbs up

this is the time when u need to make few trips to ur site to gain control of these bears so be very aggressive when baiting and luring these bears especially if the bears came again at night ,, hit em hard and let them know the goodies are here in daylights !
after done baiting and spraying come back in the afternoon and hang the dummy again,, repeat until u break these bears down !

if all above tricks didn't work then i will give u one very aggressive trick but u need to be very careful and do it step by step or u will lose the bears for this fall.

it is all gona come down to how bad u want that bear ! if u want it soo bad then stay on top of it and work hard for it,, especially the next few days !
when does the season open in ur area , and how long it last ?

I forgot to ask how long ur father in law was baiting at night ? and how long since u switched to day baiting ?
if u just started baiting early and u are willing to give this bears more time, they may change on their own .

i forget to say to turn the radio on at night and choose the most annoying channel outthere neener!
