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.

Let me start off by saying that I am a scaredy cat.
For someone that spent 3 years in 82nd Airborne jumping out of all manner of military aircraft, my friends find this ludicrous - but... it is what it is!
Climbing stand? Yep, still scared - put me up 15' and that is about it.
Ladder stands? I am better in these - but still cautious.
Chain on stands? Used to love them, now they terrify me.
I was once ridiculed for putting chain on stands waaaay too high - some of my friends...
