Well the the last couple of days I made some popcorn. I did up 8 kgs worth of it. I figure 4 kgs (2 bags) per barrel. It actually went pretty smooth, used a trurkey cooker burner and a metal garbage can. about an inch of oil in the bottom and a little better than a 1/3 of a bag of popcorn, I let it cook until it started popping and then stirred it so it wouldn't stick. took me about 2hrs to pop it all. I think it'll work just fine.
When a Nuisance bear has to be trapped for removal to another area Natural Resources get their bait from a TimHortons' dumpster. Or at least thats what they use in my area. But popcorn sounds like something they would really enjoy.
hammer1 and the black bear always lived in peace, so the above is not from personal experience.
Jim Zumbo, Craig Boddington, Ron Spomer and Wayne Van Zwoll are all solid contributers to the modern hunting literature. Through their gifts (both hunting and writing) they make us better hunters. Whether it is letting us learn from their mistakes or by teaching us new techniques,they help us harvest more game. But I suggest looking to the oldies, the fathers of the outdoor writing craft, to learn tricks that you might have not used.
I chose to shoot the 270 winchester because I grew up...
