popcorn?

I'm seriously considering using popcorn for my bait of choice, I was thinking of a popcorn, fryer grease, mollasis, raspberry jello mix. Does anyone have any tried and true popcorn for bait mixes?

done!

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. Thumbs up

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.
